Lucille’s Bar-B-Que Teams Up With Autism Speaks
In April, you can dig into a plate of ribs at Lucille’s Smokehouse Bar-B-Que and know you are making a difference. Family-owned, award-winning Lucille’s is teaming up with Autism Speaks to help increase understanding and acceptance of autism.
Throughout the entire month, Lucille’s will donate to Autism Speaks the Round It Up America contributions – in which guests “round up” their purchases to the nearest dollar. Servers will wear buttons and blue beads, the color of Autism Speaks, to show their support. Tabletop signage will share information about autism and Autism Speaks.
To kick off the promotion, on Sunday, April 2, for each donation of $5 or more, Lucille’s will give guests a $10 bonus card good for a return visit. (One per table, please.) Lucille’s will also be serving up a ‘Blueberry and Basil Margarita,’ a blue drink inspired by the color of Autism speaks, that combines El Jimador Reposado Tequila, fresh basil, vibrant blueberries and is then hand-shaken with agave nectar and fresh lime juice. For each drink sold, Lucille’s will donate an additional $1 towards their final donation to Autism Speaks.
People with autism spectrum disorder may have challenges with social skills, repetitive behaviors, speech or nonverbal communication, but they also may have unique strengths. An estimated 1 in 68 children is on the autism spectrum.
