Desserts for Dads for a cause

Treat Dad to a delectable dessert for Father’s Day, or any other day throughout the month of June, and help Mary Bird Perkins–Our Lady of the Lake Cancer Center at the same time. As part of the promotion put on by Ruth’s Chris Steak House, proceeds from sales of Key lime pie in June will be donated to the center. The project is aimed at promoting prostate cancer awareness and will help fund outreach, education and research efforts. The single-serving pies are available when dining in or for carry-out. Ruth Chris’ Steak House is located at 4836 Constitution Ave.
