In 1993, Kent Taylor opened the first Texas Roadhouse in Clarksville, Indiana and his goal was to own not just a family restaurant and not just a steak restaurant but a place where every one of all ages could come and have a great meal and great fun. They believe their family is every member of every community that has a Texas Roadhouse restaurant. It is important to give back to the communities that are so much a part of Texas Roadhouse.

Texas Roadhouse - Andy the Armadillo

60

That means playing an active role in the events that shape the lives of the people they live and work with. Texas Roadhouse works with many organizations coordinating fundraisers and give back nights. They also participate in hundreds of community events over the course of the year. Everything they do strives to be the biggest supporter of all of the communities they are in. That's why you're likely to see Andy the Armadillo at a local little league game or reading to the children in their local schools. At Outback Steakhouse, they take pride in getting to know their neighbors and building relationships with fellow community organizations. In 1988, the founders envisioned a restaurant with a casual atmosphere, quality food and service and a belief that their restaurants

would make valuable contributions to their neighborhoods and communities. Today, they still proudly stand by those commitments. Nationally, they believe in serving those who serve and have cultivated a partnership with Operation Homefront. Over the last two years, Outback Steakhouse has donated over $1 million dollars to Operation Homefront who helps military families in need. Visit one of the 26 Orlando area Outback Steakhouse locations to see how you can help. With over 35,000 Rescues, SeaWorld® Orlando continues the company’s commitment to rescuing and caring for marine animals. SeaWorld's legacy of animal rescue spans more than 50 years. In that time, SeaWorld’s Rescue Teams have come to the aid of more than 35,000 sick, injured and orphaned animals in need, giving them a second chance at life. None of this would be possible without the continued support of partner agencies, park guests, Pass Members and dedicated team members, as well as the people across the globe taking action to protect these amazing animals and their habitats. Uno is proud to support the local communities they serve with their hugely popular Dough Rai$ers program. To date, they've donated more than $4 million to deserving organizations with some local organizations earning more than $2,500 a year. Central Florida UNO locations have helped raise money for sports teams, breast cancer foundations, local schools, police departments, hurricane relief funds and so much more! Each event is made special, whether it be one day of fun with a theme and décor or an ongoing fundraiser they will set up a DoughRai$er to meet the organization’s needs.

elcome to Central Florida! Somehow, the benefits of getting away from our usual environment and every day routines make the hardships and challenges that accompany travel worth it.

open Daily starting at 11am happy hour mon-fri 3-6pm & 9pm - Close

Staying healthy while travelling is probably the last thing we think about. Yet, speaking from experience, I can tell you that feeling not well while away from home will take away some of the joy of your trip. Mindfulness and self-care can be some of the best additions to your journey. We should do our best to keep ourselves healthy. A little effort will reap great rewards. While on long flights, make healthy choices when it comes to food. Eat what will make you feel energized rather than heavy. Request water and juice, avoid ice and alcohol. Dress comfortably on the plane. If you take medication or are prone to certain illnesses, be proactive. Make sure you have packed what you need or are familiar with the many pharmacies located in Central Florida. Wash hands often and avoid touching your face. Enjoy the journey; you have arrived in beautiful sunny Florida! Interact with new people and taste different foods. Be sure to visit a local concierge to ensure your stay is an extremely unique experience. After it’s over, it often only takes a scroll through the photos to make you want to start planning your return trip to Orlando!

Our daughter’s dying wish to share her diary and save lives from drugs Available at Amazon, Barnes & Noble and Walmart.

“Our daughter’s legacy is that her death will save thousands of other people’s lives.” That’s the promise from her parents, David and Jackie Siegel. Carrying on Victoria’s legacy is their reason for publishing their daughter’s diary—teen slang, bad language and all. At 18, Victoria Siegel died of a drug overdose. Right after Victoria passed away, Jackie received a text from one of Victoria’s friends directing her to check her bedroom nightstand for a secret diary she had kept, and suggesting they publish it. The Siegels decided to honor Victoria’s last wish.
