After reaching their goal of raising $10,000 for local charities within their first year in business, SOL Southwest Kitchen & Tequila Bar looks to a second year of fundraising with its newest Kitchen Karma partnership. Now through January 5, SOL is partnering with Lowcountry Orphan Relief, a local charity organization that provides services and aid to meet the needs of Lowcountry children identified as at-risk or suffering from abandonment, abuse and/or neglect.
“Giving back is part of our mission,” said David Clark, owner of SOL, “and we’re honored to have the opportunity to work with our customers to help raise money for local kids who need our support.”
SOL raises these funds through its Kitchen Karma program where the restaurant pairs up with a local charity to raise funds for that organization for a period of about six to eight weeks. With this program, SOL chooses a featured dish and a featured cocktail and donates $1 from every featured item purchased at SOL within that fundraising period. The featured items for the Lowcountry Orphan Relief partnership include the Cranberry Spiced Margarita and Christmas Chimichanga. The Cranberry Spiced Margarita is made with classic holiday flavors, including fresh cranberry, cinnamon, all spice, clove, and tequila, with a lime sugar rim. The Christmas Chimichanga received its name from the red and green chile sauces used to make the dish.
