Locals swinging by Bakery Lorraine for lunch on June 21 were treated to more than the restaurant's famous macarons. As part of CultureMap's new partnership with Frost Bank, and in celebration of our newly launched CultureMap Charity Guide, lucky patrons were treated to a morning of surprise giveaways designed to #frostitforward.

Whether they were meeting friends for coffee or taking a break alongside fellow Fort Sam Houston service members, Bakery Lorraine diners were surprised with a free coffee and special Frost cash card. In the spirit of spreading optimism, each card came with a note asking the receiver to use the money to spark a random act of generosity for someone else. 

With coffee and cash card in hand, guests then headed to the special CultureMap photo booth to document the fun and chow down Bakery Lorraine's special chocolate chip cookies as a sweet added bonus. 

In the spirit of #frostitforward, CultureMap has created our San Antonio Charity Guide as a one-stop destination for area nonprofits and charities. Search for an organization by name or category to learn about the mission and how to give back. As a CultureMap reader, you will uncover inspiring and heartfelt stories about these organizations all year long as part of our Charity Guide special editorial series.  

The pop-up was the first of seven surprise events in Alamo City over the course of 2018. Each month, the CultureMap street team will head to a secret location to surprise and delight San Antonians. Follow along on Instagram and Twitter for hints about our next stop.
