Free lunch for a good cause


EAU CLAIRE - They say there's no such thing as a free lunch, but one organization looked to challenge that.

On Monday, Texas Roadhouse, with some help from local law enforcement, served up a free lunch for anybody who came in, with 100% of tips going directly to Special Olympics Wisconsin. In addition, around 1,000 meals were delivered to local businesses, which is three times more than last year.

Karen Kraus from Special Olympics Wisconsin said, "It's just been amazing to see that kind of support, and to know that our athletes are the ones that are going to benefit from this? There are no words."

This is the second year this event has been held. They served 1,475 meals and raised over $10,000 for Special Olympics' programming in sports, health, education and community building.
