SALT LAKE CITY and DALLAS, April 26, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Texas Land & Cattle Steak House and Children's Miracle Network Hospitals® today announced that they have formed a new fundraising partnership. Beginning April 26th, Texas Land & Cattle restaurants will donate a portion of proceeds from every sale of its Triple Chocolate Miracle Cake™ to Children's Miracle Network Hospitals, a children's charity that raises funds for more than 170 pediatric hospitals.
Texas Land & Cattle's Triple Chocolate Miracle Cake is a rich, flavorful and decadent dessert that will be available at all Texas Land & Cattle locations nationwide.
