Local Restaurant Gives Back to PCH

America’s Taco Shop is dedicating a day to Phoenix Children’s Hospital with their 2nd annual Carne for a Cause event. On March 23, 20 percent of all proceeds from each purchase at all six Valley locations will be donated to this special initiative.

“Carne for a Cause is a rewarding fundraising effort we have decided to make into an annual event,” says Terry Bortin, co-founder of America’s Taco Shop with his wife America Corrales-Bortin. “Phoenix Children’s Hospital provides needed care to so many children in our community. It is our honor to give back to the programs and individuals who make it all happen.”

Carne for a Cause started last year after Bortin’s two daughters wanted to give back to the children in the hospital after passing the colorful building every day. “Something struck a chord with them and they approached me about doing something to help,” says Bortin.

Carne for a Cause will take place at all six Valley locations:

2041 N. 7th Street
Phoenix, Arizona 85006

4447 N. 7th Avenue
Phoenix, Arizona 85013
