ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Chili's restaurant peppered in something a little special to dinner Tuesday night.

From 6:00 to 9:00 p.m., 10 percent of customers' bills went to fund the Alzheimer's Association Memory Walk. 

More than 200,000 Georgians have Alzheimer's disease. The manager says this was something he wanted to do to give back to the community.

"We're trying to work into the community," said Chili's Manager, Lumus Kerlegon. "It's a win-win situation. We get a lot of business from the organization and we're able to give back 10 percent of the sales."

The memory walk will take place Saturday September 25th at the Veranda. For more information, visit the Alzheimer's Association website.
