Chuy’s Donates to Healing House

Jun 03, 2016 12:39PM, Published by Savannah Ludwig, Categories: Family, Acadiana Life, Health Family Features, Acadiana families




As part of the grand opening celebration of its first Louisiana location, Chuy's is extending a helping hand to kids in Acadiana. The Austin based Tex-Mex restaurant that opened in Lafayette in March, presented a check for more than $7,900 to Healing House at a ceremony at the restaurant yesterday. The proceeds were raised from a Facebook fundraiser and multiple pre-opening events.

"Healing House does such a tremendous service to the children of Acadiana," said Joel Docking, local owner/operator of Chuy's Lafayette. "We feel privileged to help them carry on the important work they do in our community."

The mission of Healing House focuses on helping children through grief issues in a group atmosphere. They provide a safe place, where children who have experienced a death of a loved one can express their thoughts and feelings in a variety of ways. 

Kim Thackston with Healing House was on hand for the check presentation."We are thankful to the team at Chuy's for showing such support for Healing House and the children and families we serve," said Thackston. "When local businesses get involved it really can make all the difference." Learn more about the Healing House at http://www.healing-house.org/ 

Chuy's is located on the corner of Ambassador Caffery Parkway and Kaliste Saloom Road in the new Ambassador Town Center. For updates and to follow the restaurant’s community involvement, visit the Chuy’s Lafayette Facebook page at www.facebook.com/ChuysLafayette/
