DALLAS, Jan. 25, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Twin Peaks, the ultimate sports lodge known for its made-from-scratch kitchen, rugged atmosphere, and playful Twin Peaks Girls, recently teamed up with local charities this holiday season to host events around the nation, collecting toys and raising funds. The events were held during the month of December at various participating Twin Peaks locations.
Guests were encouraged to bring a new unwrapped toy or food items to help underprivileged children in the area. In some cases, Twin Peaks employees volunteered their time to help local families.
