Mark your calendars. Sedona Taphouse at 1035 Millmont Street in Charlottesville is doing their Steak Out for Charity to benefit PACEM in February. Sedona Taphouse does Steak Out for Charity every Monday throughout the year. Here’s how it works.
All day on Mondays, Sedona Taphouse has a special. You can order an 8-ounce Black Angus flat iron streak with garlic whipped potatoes for just $6.00. This menu item is usually $16.90. $1 of each steak purchase goes to the charity of the month, which in February is PACEM. A beverage purchase is also required. The special is good all day for lunch and dinner. Sedona Taphouse opens at 11:30 a.m. for lunch and is open until midnight.
Steak Out for Charity is for dine-in only and is not valid on “to go” orders.
You do not have to specify that you want to donate to charity. If you order this $6 menu item and a beverage on Mondays, $1 will go to charity. There is also a one steak per person limit.
Tell your friends and family about this amazing charity opportunity at Sedona Taphouse. You’ll want to make reservations on Monday nights, because the restaurant gets pretty busy. More information about the restaurant and the program can be found online at www.sedonataphouse.com.
Maybe get a Westminster group together and enjoy fellowship while supporting the mission of PACEM in our community!
