Cactus Restaurants

Cactus In Our Community

It is very important to us that we extend hospitality beyond the four walls of our restaurants and into our community. In doing so, Cactus Restaurants has decided to focus nearly all of our charitable efforts on education. Can we ever really care enough or spend too much on the education of our kids? We can’t and we don’t—so we feel compelled to focus our efforts here.

So, if you are looking to procure items for your school’s auction or raffle, we encourage you to contact us.

How We Helped
