Houlihan’s expands Cookies for a Cause campaign to Pittsburgh-area locations; will benefit The Children’s Home of Pittsburgh & Lemieux Family Center

Four area locations are giving you a reason to order dessert 

PITTSBURGH (Aug. 1, 2016) – Beginning Aug. 1, all Pittsburgh-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 Cranberry Township, the Mall of Robinson, Mount Lebanon and Station Square, Pennsylvania. Each location will sell its signature, homemade cookies at lunch for 50 cents. 100 percent of the net proceeds will be donated to The Children’s Home of Pittsburgh & Lemieux Family Center.

The Children’s Home of Pittsburgh & Lemieux Family Center promotes the health and well-being of infants and children through services which establish and strengthen the family. The organization has been helping children and families for more than 120 years through their three unique programs- Adoption, Child’s Way® and the Pediatric Specialty Hospital.

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.
