(ABC 6 News) -- Tuesday night you can skip out on cooking dinner and help a good cause.

Applebee's in Austin is donating 15 percent of all checks to The Arc Mower County.  The Arc is facing budget cuts, and they hope money raised will help them continue to provide services to people with disabilities.

"People with disabilities have to have a place to go, they need to be included out in the community and that's what we try to provide for them, a safe, fun place to go, sports they can be involved in, all kinds of stuff like that" Executive Director Dawn Helgeson said.

Donations will be made on checks from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m., but you need to have a flyer with you when you eat.  You can pick that up at The Arc Mower County or download it here (opens as PDF).
