Texas Roadhouse of Fallston announced recently it has formed a partnership with the Upper Chesapeake Health Foundation in support of The Senator Bob Hooper House, Harford County's first residential hospice facility.
Texas Roadhouse will be donating entrees and providing food service to an estimated 750 guests who will be in attendance for the 14th annual Upper Chesapeake Hospice Regatta planned for June in Havre de Grace. The restaurant is committed to making a positive impact by providing all food at free for this year's Hospice Regatta.
"We are proud to make this gift to the Senator Bob Hooper House and ultimately support end of life care for the residents in our community," Adam Osborn, managing partner of Texas Roadhouse of Fallston and a member of the Upper Chesapeake Hospice Regatta Committee, said in a press release. Osborn added the event is being promoted within the restaurant, motivating restaurant team members to take part in fundraising as well.
"Mr. Osborn's initiative and generosity prove instrumental in raising funds for the Upper Chesapeake Hospice Regatta," Ken Ferrara, vice president and executive director of The Upper Chesapeake Health Foundation, said in the press release, adding, "We value this community partnership and look forward to the future of this relationship." Last year's Upper Chesapeake Hospice Regatta raised more than $100,000 in support of the Senator Bob Hooper House. Held along the shores of the Susquehanna River in Havre de Grace, near the Concord Point Lighthouse, the regatta regularly boasts a turnout of more than 700 people.
During the Shore Party, guests watch the race, dance and dine under a giant tent next to the lighthouse. The evening's events include live music and dancing under the stars, plant and money wheels, as well as live and silent auctions.
