Going out for dinner tonight? This Friday, March 24, support the Robinson Best Buddies club and head to the Chipotle on Dale Mabry. The club will receive 50% of all proceeds from your meal when you mention Robinson Best Buddies at the register.

“The money raised goes to our team for the Best Buddies walk we have every year,” said club co-President Eve Iavarone (’17).

The annual walk will be held in downtown Tampa on April 22, and the money raised will be donated to the Best Buddies organization to help with its various programs, especially its job program.

“The job program is for kids with special disabilities after they get out of college or high school,” Ivarone said. “A lot of them don’t have many options and the job program allows them to get real jobs. They have one in Miami, but they’re trying to get one in Tampa.”

The fundraiser will be held from 6 to 10 p.m. at Chipotle Mexican Grill (2011 N Dale Mabry Hwy, Tampa, FL 33607).
