Ragin’ Cajun celebrated its newly remodeled restaurant on Westheimer – all for a good cause. With improvements inside and out, the new space welcomed customers from around the area in an event with Ragin’ Cajun’s charity partner, The Quillian Center.

Through Ragin’ Cajun’s new giving program, Cuz We Care, the restaurant raised more than $800 for The Quillian Center, a sports and recreation ministry at First Methodist Houston. “At our restaurant, we treat everyone like family, and the Memorial community has been a part of that family for 15 years,” said Dominic Mandola, President of Ragin’ Cajun. “That is why we started the Cuz We Care program –  to give back to the communities that have supported us over the years, and to make a lasting impact on children’s lives.”

The Cuz We Care program is an initiative launched in 2014 with the mission of creating a comprehensive, sustainable giving program. Through this program, Ragin’ Cajun has pledged to support one Houston children’s charity each month. The program will allow the restaurant’s giving efforts to be felt more significantly. “Not only do we want to be known for our exceptional customer service and quality food, but we want to be known as a restaurant that truly cares about our community,” Mandola said.
