(DALLAS) – Norma’s Cafe, Dallas’ comfort food icon, announces their partnership with The Dallas Stars Foundation throughout October to celebrate the 7th annual Texas Chicken Fried Steak Day. In honor of this Texas-born holiday, initiated by owner Ed Murph, the cafe’s 3rd annual charity bus tour will take place on Thursday, Oct. 26.

This year, the Norma’s Cafe team will hit the road on Oct. 26 to travel north for its annual charity bus tour. The cafe will announce participating restaurants in the coming weeks. Sponsors can still sign up to secure spots on the bus. Email for more information. All proceeds benefit The Dallas Stars Foundation, whose mission is to enrich the lives of children in need by giving back to the community. In previous years Norma’s Cafe raised more than $25,063 from the bus tour for Dallas-Fort Worth nonprofit organizations.

“We could not be more excited to partner with the Dallas Stars Foundation for Texas Chicken Fried Steak Day,” said Ed Murph, owner of Norma’s Cafe. “Giving back to the community is something they, too, take pride in, and our Norma’s Cafe team looks forward to kicking off the hockey season with supporting such a great organization.”

Guests can purchase raffle tickets for $1 at all five Norma’s Cafe locations for a chance to join the Norma’s Cafe team on the Texas Chicken Fried Steak Day bus tour, as well as opportunities to win Norma’s Cafe gift certificates and swag, Dallas Stars tickets, merchandise, signed memorabilia, chicken fried steak for a year and more. All raffle ticket proceeds will directly benefit The Dallas Stars Foundation to support children in the community.

“The Dallas Stars Foundation is excited to partner with Norma’s for this event,” said Grady Raskin, executive director of the Dallas Stars Foundation. “Norma’s Cafe is doing great things in our community and we are thrilled to be a part of that. Funds raised from the bus tour will make a huge impact on our programs and the communities we serve.”

To make the month a little more green, Norma’s Cafe will celebrate the beginning of the Dallas Stars season with the “Dallas Stars” Pie – a chocolate mint pie in a graham cracker crust with

homemade whipped cream and green sprinkles. Proceeds from the “Dallas Stars” Pie will also be donated to the Dallas Stars Foundation.
