Four Rockford area restaurants team up to help children with development disabilities.
October is Down Syndrome Awareness month. One local restaurant a week will donate a portion of their proceeds to GiGi's Playhouse in Rockford.
Starting next week, October 7th, a portion of your meal at Backyard Grill & Bar in Loves Park will go to GiGi's.
Red Mango, McDonald's and Culver's have also agreed to help the organization.
Gigi's Playhouse is a Down Syndrome achievement center. It provides free programs to families that are designed to work on specific skill development for kids.
