June 28, Fundraiser at Tijuana Flats

Let's taco-bout some puppies!
Join us for a yummy fundraiser at 

In queso you didn't know, all you have to do is come eat (dine in OR take out) for dinner on Wednesday, June 28th from 5 - 9 pm, and Tijuana Flats will donate 20% of the proceeds to Stepping Stones!  All you have to do is tell them you are eating to support the SS pups!

Located in Hanestown on Stratford Rd
(Physical Address: 227 Harvey St, WS, NC 27103)

A couple of FAQs:

~ The restaurant does serve adult beverages as well as soft drinks.

~ This is a family friendly location, so yes - bring the kids!

~ The patio is dog-friendly (just be mindful that there may be limited space 
because of the number of people in attendance this evening).

~ Take-out orders DO count, as long as you say the magic words.

~ And, yes, we will have a few cutie pies there who are available for adoption! (If you'd like to meet a specific dog, please let us know. At this time we only plan to have the puppies out there with us.)

We hope to see you there!
