Z’Tejas Cornbread for A Cause, the restaurant group’s corporate giving program, raised $21,238 for Brokers for Kids/Agents Benefiting Children, a year-long fundraising effort by the Scottsdale Active 20-30 Club, from Jan. 1 through March 31.

Beginning April 1 through June 30, Z’Tejas Cornbread for A Cause is raising funds for Valley military-focused charity, Military Assistance Mission. Funds are raised from proceeds from sales of the freshly-baked Z’Tejas cornbread priced at $3 per loaf. Proceeds from Z’Tejas’ five Phoenix-area locations will be donated to Military Assistance Mission.

“We are overwhelmed by the success of Cornbread for A Cause since launching the first campaign last December and we are extremely grateful to all our guests, team members and charity partners in embracing our corporate giving program,” stated Gary Manley, general partner at Z’Tejas Restaurants, in a press release. “We are excited to partner with a charitable organization that is making a huge difference in the lives of our active duty service men and women, veterans and their families, for Cornbread for A Cause in the second quarter.”

The Military Assistance Mission serves Arizona’s active duty military, their families and wounded warriors by providing them with financial, morale and emergency assistance regardless of their deployment status.

The Scottsdale Z’Tejas location is inside the Scottsdale Fashion Square, 7014 E. Camelback Rd.
