What’s better than dining out and in doing so giving back to others? These restaurants in Utah are supporting worthy charitable causes and giving back when you eat!
Aqua Terra Steak + Sushi
Visit Aqua Terra Steak + Sushi through the end of January 2024 to enjoy the community-focused Mak-n-Jax’s Milkshake Bar, which benefits Salt Lake Education Foundation (SLEF).
As part of the Mak-n-Jax’s Milkshake Bar initiative, $1 from each milkshake sold will be donated. Guests of all ages can give back to their community, one milkshake at a time. Enjoy the Classic Milkshake featuring a base of vanilla, chocolate, strawberry sorbet, or all three, topped with whipped cream. The Mixed Milkshake features that same base with the selection of three toppings, from chocolate chips and Oreo cookies to toasted macadamia crunch or coconut.
Through AHG Cares, the philanthropic arm of Aqua Terra, CEO and President, Elaina Morris, has personally commited to connecting with the communities where AHG restaurants reside.
“We believe the future of our people is the future of our company,” said Morris. “We believe we are fully aligned with SLEF and share its desire to do our part to help strengthen the educational opportunities of students in the area.”
The Salt Lake Education Foundation supports every student in the Salt Lake City School District, helping ensure they achieve their goals in and out of the classroom; and relies on the community’s support to help students.
“We appreciate the partnership with businesses, like Aqua Terra Steak + Sushi, who bring positive change for our students and strengthen our community,” said Salt Lake Education Foundation Director James Yapias. “We are grateful for their support as we work to equip all students with the skills and tools they need to succeed both inside and outside the classroom.”
