Macayo’s Mexican Grill and Cantina is celebrating their grand re-opening on Wednesday, Sept. 16.

The evening starts at 6 p.m., at the newly remolded Scottsdale Macayo’s, located at 11107 N. Scottsdale Rd. north of Shea. Macayo’s will be donating 50 percent of the proceeds to Helping Hands for Freedom as they unveil their new concept, according to a press release.

It’s a special time for Macayo’s Mexican Kitchen, and the Grill and Cantina Scottsdale location is unveiling the best of Macayo’s heritage and soul with a fresh, new look and menu, stated the release. Inspired by the legacy of Macayo’s founder Woody Johnson, daughter Sharisse Johnson continues his journey to build a stronger Macayo’s, bringing forth the best history, innovation, hospitality and of course, traditional Mexican.

The mission of Helping Hands for Freedom is to provide military children and families the financial assistance necessary when dealing with a family member lost, wounded, or serving multiple deployments in Iraq and/or Afghanistan, according to the release.

“Macayo’s believes those who have served our country so bravely are very deserving of our support. This is our first chance to work with Helping Hands. This group was founded by vets for vets,” stated Matt McMahon, CEO of Macayo’s Mexican Kitchen, in the release.
