In honor of Texas Independence Day, On The Border Mexican Grill & Cantina* is teaming up with Tito’s Handmade Vodka* to raise funds and awareness for Canine Companions for Independence, an organization that trains and provides assistance dogs free of charge to people with disabilities.

Throughout the month of March, guests at On The Border that donate $5 or more will receive a $5 coupon to use during a future visit.

To add to the excitement, On the Border will host a “Yappy Hour” at five restaurants – Addison, College Station, Lubbock, Valley Ranch and Waco – on Texas Independence Day, March 2. During Yappy Hour, from 4-7 p.m., dogs will be welcome on the patio, and customers can snag Tito’s Vodka for Dog People* swag and try a Tito’s Lime Fresca. Best of all, during each Yappy Hour event, Canine Companions for Independence service dogs and team members will be onsite to provide demonstrations and information about the non-profit organization.

“We are excited to celebrate Texas Independence Day by teaming up with another great Texas-based brand in order to raise funds and awareness for an incredible, life-changing organization,” said Edithann Ramey, Chief Marketing Officer for On The Border. “Canine Companions for Independence transforms the lives of Texans with disabilities by giving them a service dog that will help them gain more independence. We are honored to have the opportunity to host this fundraiser in addition to the Yappy Hour events.”

“We have a reputation for making excellent matches and that extends to our corporate partners as well,” said Bryan Harding, Senior Development Director for Canine Companions for Independence. “Fundraisers like this help provide even more service dogs for people with disabilities. We look forward to celebrating Texas Independence Day with On The Border and Tito’s.”
