Tijuana Flats Spreads Holiday Cheer at Sulphur Springs Head Start

ORLANDO, Fla. (Wednesday, December 15, 2010) – Today, Tijuana Flats, brought the holiday cheer to Sulphur Springs Head Start, providing holiday presents for the program’s 104 children.

Tijuana Flats has been making holidays merry for the children of Head Start since the restaurant’s inception in 1995. This year, the restaurant sponsored the Hillsborough County program’s holiday celebration by giving the students, ages 18 months to five years, gifts and treats delivered by Santa Claus.

“The expressions on the students’ faces when they see Santa with gifts for them is the reason we continue to support Head Start year after year,” said Tijuana Flats owner Brian Wheeler. “Tijuana Flats is happy to help assist making the holiday season memorable for them.”
