Mt. Pleasant, Wis. – Who says there’s no such thing as a free lunch? That’s exactly what’s happening on Thursday, April 11 when Special Olympics Wisconsin (SOWI) teams up with Texas Roadhouse and local law enforcement for the Guardians of the Flame FREE lunch fundraiser to benefit more than 1,200 local Special Olympics athletes.

Fill your stomach without emptying your wallet! Texas Roadhouse, 6228 Durand St, Mt Pleasant, will open its doors from 11a.m. – 2 p.m. to serve meals consisting of a pulled pork sandwich, fries, applesauce and a soda.

Local law enforcement officers, SOWI athletes, and wait staff will team up to serve this free lunch and 100% of the tips will stay locally to help kids and adults with intellectual disabilities. Officers will also be providing delivery to businesses if you would like an easy lunch at work. You can also call ahead and pick up lunch. Fundraisers like this, ensure that Special Olympics Wisconsin can continue to provide programming in sports, health, education, and community building.

In 2018, the Racine Texas Roadhouse location raised over $4,600 for Special Olympics Wisconsin athletes.

A special thank you goes out to Texas Roadhouse for donating the food and Law Enforcement officers for making this 7th annual event possible.
