We Love Lucille's & Even More So We Love That Lucille's BBQ Supports Autism Awareness!
Thanks to Lucille's BBQ for helping spread the word and education on fundraising for Autism during the month of April!
In honor of Autism Awareness Month, Lucille’s Smokehouse Bar-B-Que teamed up with three autism organizations to raise awareness and funds during the month of April to support the autism community.
Donations will be accepted through Round It Up America contributions – in which guests “round up” their purchases to the nearest dollar – at all 24 Lucille’s locations throughout Arizona, California and Nevada. For donations of $5 or more Lucille’s will give guests a $10 bonus card good for a return visit between May 1 and June 30, 2019.
Southern California’s favorite family-owned award winning barbeque destination, Lucille’s Smokehouse Bar-B-Que restaurants are dishing up Southern-inspired plates for a cause. In honor of April’s Autism Awareness Month, Lucille's teamed up with three autism organizations to raise awareness and funds during the month of April to support the autism community. The three organizations include Autism Speaks, the Southwest Autism Research and Resource Center and the Grant a Gift Autism Foundation.
“For a fourth year, we are proud to support the autism community in their efforts to learn more about this condition that affects as many as 1 in 59 children nationwide,” said Brad Hofman, President, Hofman Hospitality Group, parent company of Lucille’s Smokehouse Bar B Que. “We have seen how Lucille’s family can make a difference when we come together for a common cause, and we look forward to continuing to support these organizations.”
Lucille’s will donate to these three worthy causes through Round It Up America contributions – in which guests “round up” their purchases to the nearest dollar – at all 24 Lucille’s locations throughout Arizona, California and Nevada.
For donations of $5 or more made during the month of April, Lucille’s will give guests a $10 bonus card good for a return visit between May 1 and June 30, 2019 (one per table, please).
As another way to support these organizations, Lucille’s will be serving up a drink called the “Rhythm and Blues,” inspired by the color for autism awareness and is made from fresh blueberries and mint hand shaken with Tito's Vodka, St. Germain Elderflower Liqueur and fresh lime juice. For each Rhythm and Blues sold in April, Lucille’s will donate an additional $1 towards the cause.
Lucille’s restaurants are reminiscent of a Southern roadhouse with a distinctive Southern décor that features reclaimed wood outline doors and windows for a rustic yet contemporary look. Lucille’s features blues-inspired art throughout the restaurant and the Flying Pig lounge.
Lucille’s has been participating in Round It Up America, platform that encourages restaurant guests to donate change; over the past ten years, Round It Up America has collectively raised millions of dollars for charitable organizations and programs across the country.
Our Story & Autism...
Autism is in our home. It's in our daily lives but it does not control our lives.
We work very hard with a lot of supportive others and have come a long way with our son.
Diagnosed at age 2 we started early start and all programs we could for speech, communication, behavior and feeding.
Today my now 7 year old is thriving educationally and loving life in mainstream first grade and we continue to support and work on things.
Do we have challenges, yes... do we hit our goals and create harder challenging ones, yes... do we support others in their efforts to help their ASD family or friend, yes... teamwork makes the dream work.
This is why we love when companies like Lucille's BBQ support us too.
Autism, or autism spectrum disorder, refers to a broad range of conditions characterized by challenges with social skills, repetitive behaviors, speech and nonverbal communication. We now know that there is not one autism but many subtypes, and each person with autism can have unique strengths and challenges. Most are caused by a combination of genetic and environmental influences, and many are accompanied by medical issues such as GI disorders, seizures and sleep disturbances. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates 1 in 68 children is on the autism spectrum.
About Autism Speaks
Autism Speaks is dedicated to promoting solutions, across the spectrum and throughout the life span, for the needs of individuals with autism and their families. We do this through advocacy and support; increasing understanding and acceptance of autism spectrum disorder; and advancing research into causes and better interventions for autism spectrum disorder and related conditions. We empower people with autism and their families with resources, online tools and information covering the life span. Go to AutismSpeaks.org to learn more, donate or join a fundraising walk.
ABOUT GRANT A GIFT AUTISM FOUNDATION
Founded in 2009, Grant a Gift Autism Foundation grew out of the struggle of a mom whose son, Grant, was diagnosed with autism and other neuro-developmental conditions. Grant a Gift Autism Foundation is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization helping children, youth and their families fight autism by providing diagnostic and treatment funding, support services, social skills and vocational training, transition planning, and education.
