As most of you know, our Escondido Elks Lodge has as annual event — EAT AT CHILI’S!
The event this year has been re-scheduled — and the newly re-scheduled date was determined too late to be included in our February Elkherd.
This is you official notice: Please eat at Chili’s on Tuesday, February 21st.
The rules are very simple: Eat at any Chili’s Restaurant in California or Hawaii — at any time on February 21st that they are open — and tell your server that you wish to donate a portion (15% actually) of your restaurant bill to an Elks charity.
All Elk members —and their guests — are eligible to participate. In fact — you can invite other family members, neighbors, anyone to eat at Chili’s on February
21st. (Chili’s encourages as many participants as possible.)
Statewide last year we raised over $24,000 for our Elks charities — actually CHEIMPI $24,000 — from this event.)
We are attempting to have this Chili’s fund raising event include all Elk lodges — we hope to eventually have “Eat at Chili’s” a nationwide wide event.
One other — very important point — the “Eat at Chili’s” event was started by our very own recently departed Escondido Elks member — Steve Wagstaff PER.
The event has grown over the years due to the influence of Steve and his friendship with certain Chili’s employees.
We are asking all of our Escondido Elk members this year— make a special effort to “Eat at Chili’s” in Steve’s memory. Also ask other family members, or friends and associates to also participate on Tuesday, February 21st.
