Ruby Tuesday is hosting a fund-raiser to benefit Humane Milwaukee, (www.humanemilwaukee.org), an animal adoption center housed inside Southridge Mall in the corridor between Sears and Kohl’s.

In addition to the fund-raising, food donation, entertainment, and education, Ruby Tuesday will give away items such as Frisbees and can coozies to kids and adults, while supplies last.
