Texas Roadhouse Raises the Bar!
In order to ‘stomp out breast cancer’ with ‘pink cowboy boots’, Kingston Texas Roadhouse owner Adam Smith ran several promotions at his restaurant to raise money for the Miles of Hope Breast Cancer Foundation.

“We sold t-shirts with pink cowboy boots on them, we accepted donations at all cash registers, we had pin ups on the walls and we gave proceeds from all sales in October all to raise money for Miles of Hope,” explained Mr. Smith.
“We know what Miles of Hope is doing for our area and the people who need help when they are diagnosed with breast cancer. If you are not part of the solution, you don’t realize the extent of the problem. Everyone in our organization kicked in (pun intended!) to help and we were really pleased with the result,” he added.
Miles of Hope funds support services and outreach for people affected by breast cancer within the 8 counties of the Hudson Valley.
“All money raised stays here to help Hudson Valley residents with everything from paying bills while they are in treatment to scholarships for college-bound high school seniors whose lives have been affected by breast cancer,” Ms. Forood said.
“We are humbled and grateful to Adam and all those who have raised money for us throughout 2015 to enable us to achieve our mission.”
