Lemon Tree Grocer's Newest Charity: American Cancer Society!

So, Lemon Tree Grocer is welcoming the month of July in; which hopefully means a lot more sun annnnnnnnd a new charity we're giving our hard earned To-Go tips to: American Cancer Society!

As we bring in the American Cancer Society we would like to thank Evan's Life Foundation (which helps at-risk youth)! We raised $550 for them, and we hope to continuously raise more money for each charity as we venture forward on this amazing journey!

How do we pick our charities you ask? Well it's simple: Deanna came up with this fabulous idea, so she went first. Then we'll go through the entire Lemon Tree staff, Zest staff, etc. Who knows- Linkmaybe we'll even have a contest for our Lemon Tree fans to choose a charity in the long run!

Until then, just know every time you show appreciation at the To-Go counter this month American Cancer Society will benefit! We'll be sure to keep you posted on the charities to come at the Lemon Tree Grocer!

Lemon Tree Grocer has an entire schedule filled with a bit of grilling education from Owner Tim Canning himself, a dunk tank to shut the trap of loud parents and children;), and best of all (think about those Monday night burgers that you all love so much) Niman Ranch will be not only supplying the grilled products...wait for it...Steve Heun the Niman Ranch Hog Farmer will be here to educate us as well!

This costs everyone a whopping nada, no reservations, and you get 10% off your spirits for the rest of the month!! (Who can argue with that) Aw yeah!

Last but not least, if you didn't have a moment (or you just plain forgot- we won't tell) to pick up a gift for pops; Lemon Tree Grocer has some great gift ideas you can sneak in and pick up while Dad is learning about open flame cooking!
