Eat at Norma’s, give a homeless kid a birthday party

Norma’s Cafe celebrates its 61st anniversary this month  by raising money for the less fortunate.

All month, the diner is collecting funds for the Birthday Party Project, which throws birthday parties for children living in homeless shelters in 12 markets including Dallas and Fort Worth. Find piggy banks in all Norma’s locations to donate. And on June 15, a portion of all sales will go to the nonprofit.

Norma’s also brings back its annual tradition of rolling back prices to $1.79. Beginning at 10:30 a.m. on Tuesday, June 27, order chicken fried steak, meatloaf or chicken and dressing and pay the 1950s price.
