The Legend Continues Program
Legend has it that in the 13th Century, in the area of Yorkshire England, Robin of Loxley, better known as Robin Hood, made a name for himself by lightening the purses of the wealthy to benefit the needy.
Today, the legend continues. We’ll provide you with a legendary meal before we lighten your purse and invite you to participate in selecting a worthy organization. Loxley’s will donate 5% of your food bill to the featured organization you choose. Being part of a legend has never been so easy or so much fun.
We encourage charities and organizations to participate in this program by becoming one of our featured charities. Click here to apply.

York Revolution Community Fund
In York County, businesses are stepping up to the plate to show they care about their community. Case in point: The York Revolution has created a charitable endowment at York County Community Foundation that will help the organization meet its philanthropic goals over the long-term.
“It sets a great example and makes a strong impact when an organization as important to our county as the Revolution works with the Community Foundation to meet our county’s pressing needs, now and in perpetuity,” said Bill Hartman, president and CEO of York County Community Foundation.
Eric Menzer, president and general manager of the York Revolution, stressed that even though the Revolution is a young business, the organization plans to be in York forever. The establishment of this Fund is a symbol of its permanence and the mark it hopes to make in the community.
