Carney’s Kids Foundation is a locally based non-profit that raises money and awareness for children’s charitable organizations. Our goal from this event is to raise enough money to give financial assistance to regional children’s non-profits. All money raised goes directly to our charitable partners.

Join us for our 15th Annual Halloween “Taste of Restaurant Tuesday” Spooktacular!
