On Tuesday, April 5, Napa Flats Wood-Fired Kitchen restaurants cooked up a special day by donating 25 percent of gross proceeds when customers mentioned the Texas Lions Camp promotion. Hundreds of families and friends came out to eat at one of three Texas locations in Austin, College Station, and San Antonio. Tom Kenney, founder and chief bus boy of Napa Flats, reported, “We were so excited about the success of the first fundraiser for Texas Lions Camp, that we decided to design a special ‘Lions Camp’ pizza and continued the fund raising until the end of April at all of our three Texas locations in Austin, College Station, and San Antonio.”

“For over 68 years now, Texas Lions Camp has been providing self-esteem building experiences for Texas children who have physical disabilities. Napa Flats has gone to great lengths both to raise funds and awareness for our kiddos, and I cannot say thank you enough to Mr. Kenney and his amazing team for all they have done,” said Stephen S. Mabry, CFRE, CAE, and chief executive officer of TLC, “We are thrilled that Napa Flats Wood-Fired Kitchen restaurants raised $5,000 in their first year to help children with special medical conditions attend Texas Lions Camp this summer, 2016.”

The first Napa Flats Wood-Fired Kitchen in College Station opened in June of 2013, and additional locations have been opened in Austin, San Antonio, and Tulsa, Oklahoma. According to Tom Kenney, the goal and concept was to open a neighborhood restaurant and share the love of chef-inspired food with our friends, family, and community. The vision was simple: cuisine inspired by Californian flavors with an Italian flair, made from scratch and then prepared in an open kitchen over a wood–fired grill.

Since 1949, the Texas Lions Camp has provided self-esteem building experiences for more than 68,000 children who have special medical conditions from across Texas. The Camp is located on more than 500 acres in the beautiful Texas Hill Country and is designed to introduce the “can do” philosophy to children dealing with special medical conditions. The primary purpose of the Camp is to provide, without charge, a camp for Texas children with physical disabilities, down syndrome, hearing/vision impairments, cancer, and type 1 diabetes, regardless of race, religion, or national origin.

The Texas Lions Camp was organized and founded by the Lions of Texas and is recognized as a non-profit corporation, under section 501 (c) (3) of the Internal Revenue Service Code. The Camp is accredited by the American Camping Association and is licensed by the Texas Department of State Health Services.
