SOL Southwest Kitchen & Tequila Bar Raises Almost $1,400 for the Local Ronald McDonald House

Media Press Release:

This past Holiday season, SOL Southwest Kitchen & Tequila Bar paired up with local charity chapter Ronald McDonald House (RMH) of Charleston to raise money to support countless House initiatives through the restaurant’s Kitchen Karma program. Since its inception in 2013, SOL had donated over $22,000 to local charities.

On Wednesday, February 3, SOL presented a check totaling ?$1,398 to the Ronald McDonald House in Charleston, who’s mission for over 35 years has been to provide a safe haven for families with children who are receiving extensive medical treatment at nearby Hospitals.

“We are humbled that our guests helped us raise more than $1,300 for this incredible organization that allows families to stay together during a difficult time,” said David Clark, owner of SOL.

Through its Kitchen Karma program, SOL partners with?a?local charity organization for a period of five?to eight weeks?to raise funds for that?organization of choice.? SOL chooses?a featured dish and cocktail and?$1 proceeds from every featured item purchased?within that fundraising period go directly to that organization. The featured items from?the?RMH of Charleston partnership?included?the?Steak Skewers and the seasonal Cranberry Spice Margarita.

Now through March 6, the Kitchen Karma program will partner with HALOS, a local organization that provides comprehensive services for more than 700 kinship families in which grandparents and other relatives have stepped in to raise children so they will not have to enter foster care.

$1 proceeds from the Tuna Lollipops Appetizer and the Blood Orange Margarita will be donated to HALOS.
