Barrio Queen is supporting the National Breast Cancer Foundation with two fundraisers, which have been specifically approved by the organization. During the month of October, diners at Barrio Queen can join in the fight against breast cancer by donating $1 to the charity in exchange for Barrio Queen’s famous homemade chips and salsa. Barrio Queen expects to raise nearly $10,000, with the entire dollar raised for each basket of chips benefiting the charity. Additionally, for every pink Barrio Queen T-shirt purchased during the month of October, the restaurant will also donate a portion of the proceeds to The National Breast Cancer Foundation. The promotions will be running at both the Scottsdale and Gilbert locations.
