Charlie McKenna Raising Money for Breast Cancer

To honor his aunt who passed away from breast cancer in 2000, Charlie McKenna is holding a fundraiser at Lillie's Q all throughout June. If you donate at least $10 for a a Lillie's Q-branded pink rubber bracelet (that also features his aunt's initials and the image of a pig), you'll receive 10 percent off all future meals if you wear the bracelet while dining.

If you donate at least $50, in addition to the bracelet and discounts, you'll also get to make one reservation at Lillie's Q, which normally doesn't take reservations and can have pretty lengthy waits at dinner. McKenna said he hopes to raise $10,000 to give to the scholarship fund named for his aunt, who was born in June. "If we hit that goal with the help of our customers, it’ll mean more to me than any award," he said.
