Huey Magoo’s, the fast-casual Central Florida chain of restaurants known for their chicken tenders, has launched their 2019 “A Very Magoo’s Christmas” where Orlando-area locations will donate fifteen of proceeds to the Christmas Dreams charity, which provides a holiday experience to children suffering from illnesses.
As part of the event, which will take place all-day of Dec 14, guests to any of Huey Magoo’s locations will receive a free meal card for their following visit.
“We think that Christmas Dreams is a terrific organization,” Andy Howard, the President and CEO of Huey Magoo’s, said. “It’s a way to give back to the community and we love the folks over there.”
15% of all proceeds from each Huey Magoo’s location participating in the event, which is all except those at the University of Central Florida, will go to the Christmas Dreams charity. The meal pass is good for a 3-piece chicken tender meal and is good through January 2020.
Guests at Huey Magoo’s will also be able to donate money directly to the charity.
The Christmas Dreams charity was created by “a group of people with a heart and calling to Celebrate Christmas for those who needed an opportunity to celebrate any time of the year,” founder LeeAnn Stayer said.
The group has a large trailer that features “Mrs. Clauses’ Kitchen,” where kids can bake cookies with Santa’s wife and a “tinker shop” where they can create a toy to take home.
“For families whose future can be very unsure, those things that the child creates become keepsakes for a lifetime,” Stayer said.
Kids can also visit “Santa’s Man Cave” in the trailer, where a laid-back and relaxed Santa Clause will read them a story and give them a peek at the Naughty or Nice list.
Stayer says that for some of the kids that her charity assists, it will be their only opportunity to get a picture with Santa Clause.
