Several local restaurants will donate a portion of proceeds on designated days to foundation during restaurant nights promotion


The Heritage Foundation of Williamson County’s young professionals’ group Next Gen has worked with several area restaurants to cook up a unique fundraising opportunity during the months of October and November.


The current year has posed challenges for Next Gen in hosting typical fundraisers, events and mixers. Like many, this group has shifted gears to create some new and innovative ways to raise money to support the foundation and its mission.


Next Gen has partnered with several local restaurants who have agreed to donate a portion of proceeds back to the Heritage Foundation for anyone who places an order on the designated day and mentions the foundation when ordering. All money raised supports efforts in historic preservation, education and community. All you have to do is attend one of our upcoming restaurant benefit nights.

Simply dine-in or order pick-up from the specified restaurant at the date/time below and a portion of the proceeds are donated back to the Heritage Foundation.

“Our Next Gen group has curated a very simple way in a very complicated time to make a big difference to this organization,” said Heritage Foundation CEO Bari Beasley. “No effort is too small. If you cannot attend yourself, please spread the word and send your friends and families to the participating restaurant for the date listed on calendar. The more people who show up, the more money we raise.”

Below are the participating restaurants along with the date of each corresponding restaurant benefit night. Two local Chick-Fil-A locations also participated in restaurant nights held on Tuesday, October 6.
