In March, Talk of the Town Restaurant Group Foundation encouraged the Central Florida community to raise money for Kids Beating Cancer through two different fundraising drives. First their monthly “Round Up for Charity” campaign (through Charley’s Steak House, Fishbones, Johnnie’s Hideaway, Moonfish, Texas Cattle Company, and Vito’s Chop House) featured Kids Beating Cancer for the month of March and second they hosted a dinner called John’s Challenge where each guest had to raise $1,000 for the cause. Between the two, $134,697 was donated to the charity.
