Houlihan’s expands Cookies for a Cause campaign to Dallas-area locations; will benefit The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation’s Fort Worth Chapter

Four area locations are giving you a reason to order dessert

DALLAS (Aug. 2, 2016) – Beginning in August, Dallas-area Houlihan’s are launching the Cookies for a Cause campaign. After an extremely successful eight weeks of testing in Chicagoland Houlihan’s, the brand is expanding the promotion to restaurants in Arlington, Fort Worth, Garland and Prestonwood, Texas. Each location will sell its signature, homemade cookies at lunch for 50 cents. 100 percent of the net proceeds will be donated to The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation’s Fort Worth Chapter.

The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation’s goal is to cure cystic fibrosis and to provide all people living with the disease the opportunity to lead full, productive lives by funding research and drug development, promoting individualized treatment and ensuring access to high-quality, specialized care. 

Cookies for a Cause is the latest campaign from Houlihan’s to support community causes and outreach. Currently, many Houlihan’s locations nationwide serve as drop-off stations for wine bottle and sparkling wine corks through a partnership with ReCORK, a company dedicated to recycling and sustainable living. In recent years, all Dallas-area Houlihan’s have rallied to support Children’s Advocacy of Collin County through Plate it Forward. Individually, the Prestonwood and Arlington Houlihan’s hosted Plate it Forward nights to benefit Pets for Patriots and Mosaic Family Services.
