All servers at its restaurants will be donating 100% of their tips to local youth-oriented non-profit SAYSan Diego, and the company's executives will also be contributing their salaries from today. The group is hoping to top its fundraiser from last year, which raised $9,000 for the charity. [EaterWire]
