A huge thank you to the Coronado community and others around the country for your great initial response to our Old Goats Kids Who Care “Host a hero – Help a Coronado restaurant” campaign. The program will continue for as long as the restaurants and employees are under duress which will probably be well beyond the holidays. Thanks to your support, we have been able to expand our recipients to include wounded warriors, healthcare workers, first responders, and young military families.

We are still taking offers to host a hero and help a Coronado restaurant. For those interested, please email with your name, contact information, and desired dollar amount ($80 – $120 suggested). Important to note 25% tip to restaurant employee included in this total.
