Shelton restaurant hosts event to benefit charity

LongHorn Steakhouse in Shelton recently hosted a “Dining for Dollars” charity event to benefit St. Vincent’s Swim Across the Sound.

Diners were able to donate 10% of their total tab to the cause, with St. Vincent’s employees assisting LongHorn staff as servers.

LongHorn is located on Bridgeport Avenue, and regularly hosts events that benefit local nonprofit organizations.

The Swim Across the Sound Foundation is a charitable organization run by St. Vincent’s Medical Center in Bridgeport that provides cancer education, screening, and prevention programs at low- or no-cost for the under-insured and uninsured.
