(PHOENIX & SCOTTSDALE, Ariz.) – From the Valley of the Sun, to Philadelphia, to Houston and The Windy City, the nation’s top steak and seafood restaurants will come together to support the American Heart Association during American Heart Awareness month this February.

Starting Monday, February 1st, 2021 Dominick’s Steakhouse, Steak 44, Ocean 44 and Steak 48|Houston, Steak 48|Chicago,Steak 48|Philadelphia, and Steak 48|Charlotte will encourage guests dining at their top restaurants to round up their checks to support the American Heart Association. The month-long check roundup will run from February 1st through Sunday, February 28th, 2021. Any monetary donation can be made and 100-percent of the amount raised will go to the American Heart Association.

“Charities, including the American Heart Association, have been hit hard. No one understands this better than the restaurant industry. That is why we want to do our part to help support the American Heart Association that is continuing to fight heart disease, educate the public and save lives,” said Jeff Mastro, CEO and co-founder of Steak 48, Ocean 44, Steak 44 and Dominick’s Steakhouse. “We are hoping that everyone visiting our restaurants this February, both locally and nationwide, can do what they can and round up their checks, whether it’s just a few dollars or bigger donations.”

Guest are also welcome to bring a check made out directly to the American Heart Association, which the restaurant will collect and deliver together with their donation. Donations are also being accepted for take-out orders.

Throughout the month of February, the nation turns its attention to keeping families and communities free from heart disease, which is still the No. 1 killer of Americans, and stroke, which ranks second globally. Over 80 percent of heart disease is preventable. First proclaimed in February 1964 by President Lyndon B. Johnson, American Heart Awareness Month reinforces the importance of heart health and the need for more research, with a reminder to get families, friends and communities involved.

From humble beginnings, the American Heart Association has grown into the nation’s oldest and largest voluntary organization dedicated to fighting heart disease and stroke.

In response to Covid-19, the restaurants have enhanced their existing stringent safety and sanitation protocols to exceed all state and CDC guidelines.
