Restaurant event to raise money to send veterans to Washington, D.C.

A Grand Junction restaurant has scheduled an event to raise money for a program that takes World War II veterans to Washington, D.C., to visit memorials erected in their honor.

Outback Steakhouse, located at 2432 U.S. Highway 6 & 50, will host the fund-raiser from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sept. 13. Participants will enjoy a special menu lunch for a donation of $20.

Proceeds will support the upcoming Western Slope Honor Flight scheduled to leave Grand Junction Sept. 21.
