Chili's donating portion of Friday sales to aid ill employee
Aug. 22, 2012 at 3:22 a.m.
When Ramona Casares collapsed at work during her shift as a waitress at Chili's on May 22, no one dreamed the 26-year-old wouldn't be back to work by now.
Three months later, she continues to undergo treatment and therapy in a Houston rehabilitation hospital after suffering a ruptured brain aneurysm that night.
On Friday, Chili's, 5004 N. Navarro St., is donating 10 percent of sales to help defray Casares' medical bills to customers with a special fundraiser flyer. If ordering to go, mention the flyer for the discount.
Members of Casares' family and friends will have the flyers in the Chili's parking lot.
A fund has also been established at TDECU. Donations should be made to the Ramona K. Casares Fund.
