Chicago Bars Band Together to Donate $1 Per Marg on National Tequila Day

What’s better than a fresh margarita on National Tequila Day? A margarita that gives back.

That’s why this Saturday, July 24th, every restaurant listed below will be donating $1 for every margarita sold at the location to Embarc Chicago—a community-driven, experienced-based learning center for low-income high school students — providing a place to prepare them for college & career success.


National Tequila Day

Embarc’s list of corporate partners includes the likes of Northern Trust, Groupon, Xfinity, and Allstate as well.


The ‘Why’ section of Embarc’s website provides some pretty powerful insight into the core values of the program. “There are some powerful systems in place that prevent students from succeeding – violence, segregation, institutionalized racism, poverty, and underfunded schools and programs. These not only create real and visible barriers to success, but they work to impede the growth of youth psychologically as well.”

Embarc combats these systems by providing students with a myriad of positive modes of success, journeying out of their neighborhoods to directly engage with cultural and commercial worlds in Chicago. Embarc lays out the practical steps necessary for students to move towards their dreams.
