COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - A restaurant in Columbus is giving the Chattahoochee Valley the opportunity to help raise funds for local autism programs.

Guests will be able to delight in Bluewater Grill’s menu items while giving back. Half of the profits raised during the restaurant’s ‘Helpings for Hope Week’ will benefit local non-profit, Autism Hope Center.

The owners of the restaurant are new to the area and hope to give back and get involved in the autism community as they have a son with autism and understand the effects autism has on families.

“We’re here new in the Columbus community and wanted to show that we are wanting to get vested with the autistic community. We are fortunate enough to have a set of twins, Lorene and Lane, and Lane is autistic. We know the impact that autism can have on families. We hope that they all come out to visit and also enjoy some of our great food for a great cause,” said owner Lorene Smith.

Helpings for Hope Week ends Saturday.
