Participating restaurants include BJ’s Restaurant & Brewhouse, Board & Brew, Boudin Bakery, Brigantine, Chick-fil-A, Chili’s, Cold Stone Creamery, El Pollo Loco, On the Border, The Patio, Poway Sushi Lounge, Sammy’s Woodfired Pizza and Slater’s 50/50.
Additional details, including links to flyers and a list of participating restaurants, are available online.
MS is an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system that interrupts the flow of information within the brain and between the brain and body. Symptoms can range from numbness and tingling to blindness and paralysis. Most people with MS are diagnosed between the ages of 20 and 50, with at least two to three times more women than men being diagnosed with the disease.
