Damn Good Giving – Make-A-Wish Central & South Texas

It feels damn good to do good! Torchy’s is very thankful to have the opportunity to give back, and we’ve focused our assistance in areas where our company founders are especially passionate: cancer research, childhood enrichment, and addiction recovery.

In the area of childhood enrichment, Make-A-Wish® Central & South Texas has granted more than 3,000 wishes to area children living with life-threatening medical conditions. A wish experience can be a game-changer, and thanks to the efforts of Make-A-Wish®  partners, 218 wishes were granted to Central & South Texas children in 2013.

Throughout the year, Torchy’s sponsors a number of “Wish Kids”. Wishes come in all shapes and sizes, and Nathaniel’s wish was to visit to Disney World. The family visited the park in Orlando November 23 – November 29, 2013. Nathaniel’s dad said that he “loved any roller coaster he was tall enough to ride on! He is an adrenaline junkie! He still talks about riding them today.  It was a great week and fun to get away and just have fun as a family.  Thanks to everyone who made it possible.”

Few things make us as happy as Damn Good tacos and some Green Chile Queso, but the happy smile on this kid’s face is pretty hard to resist!
