A new restaurant is celebrating their grand opening by giving back to the community.

Cheeseburger in Paradise will be contributing 50% of it's proceeds Tuesday night, up to $5,000, to The Shelter for Help in Emergency. The non-profit agency provides services to victims of domestic violence in our area. Officials with the organization are thrilled with the contribution.

"It's fantastic. The Parrot Head Club locally has done a lot to support the shelter in the past, so this feels like just one more step along the way," said executive director for the organization, Mary Carter Lominack.

"An opportunity for us to work with a group that's phenomenal, that looks to be helping a great deal of people has been an opportunity we didn't want to pass up," said Cheeseburger in Paradise managing partner, Mark Sorensen.

The Shelter for Help in Emergency has been working in our community since 1979.
