America's Taco Shop says it will donate 20 percent of all proceeds on Friday, May 9, to Phoenix Children's Hospital. The initiative, called "Carne for a Cause," combines the local chain's cheap tacos and burritos with charitable giving inspired by the founder's young daughters.

All nine America's Taco Shop locations in the Valley will participate in the "Carne for a Cause" event, which means you have plenty of opportunity to dig into a spicy Vampiro or tangy and smoky al pastor taco, all while donating to Phoenix Children's Hospital.

Now in its third year, the event has raised about $10,000 for the hospital. Owners Terry and America Bortin's daughters inspired the event. The family would drive by the brightly colored hospital building most days and the girls wanted to help out.
