America’s Taco Shop is dedicating a day to Phoenix Children’s Hospital with its second annual Carne for a Cause event on March 23. That day, 20 percent of proceeds from each purchase will be donated to the hospital.

“Carne for a Cause is a rewarding fundraising effort we have decided to make into an annual event,” said Terry Bortin, co-founder of America’s Taco Shop with his wife America Corrales-Bortin, in a release. “Phoenix Children’s Hospital provides needed care to so many children in our community. It is our honor to give back to the programs and individuals who make it all happen.”

Carne for a Cause started last year after Bortin’s two daughters wanted to give back to the children in the hospital after passing the colorful building every day.

“Something struck a chord with them, and they approached me about doing something to help,” said Bortin.

Carne for a Cause will take place at all six Valley locations. East Valley restaurants are at 735 E. University Drive, Tempe, and inside Arizona Mills Mall at 5000 Arizona Mills Circle, Tempe.
