Chili's Grill & Bar donating all profits from this Monday to St. Jude
Eat at Chili's Grill & Bar on September 24
On September 24, Chili’s Grill & Bar offers an easy way for you to join the fight against childhood cancer: dining out.
Participating Chili’s restaurants nationwide will donate 100 percent of its profits from this Monday to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. So enjoy
those famous Baby Back Ribs or one of Chili’s other signature entrées for lunch or dinner, and you will be supporting the life-saving work of St. Jude.
“If you go out to eat for lunch or dinner on September 24, by going to Chili’s you will help seriously ill children become the ultimate survivors. On that
day, Chili’s restaurants nationwide will be donating all their profits to support St. Jude,” said Jeff Probst, host and producer of the EmmyTM Award-winning
CBS-TV series Survivor, who is serving as the campaign spokesperson for the fourth year and appears in a public service announcement that can be viewed
The special day is part of Chili’s “Create-A-Pepper to Fight Childhood Cancer” campaign. During September—which is National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month—guests
can make a donation to St. Jude and receive a coloring sheet they can decorate and have displayed in the restaurant.
Guests can also purchase
($12) that can be customized with permanent marker as well as
($5). Sixty percent of the purchase price of the T-shirt and dog tags will go to St. Jude.
will also benefit St. Jude with Chili’s donating $1 to St. Jude for every $25 purchased in commemorative Create-A-Pepper gift cards.
Chili’s hopes to raise $5 million through this year’s campaign which will go toward its $50 million, 10 year plan to fund the Chili’s Care Center, a state-of-the-art
research and clinical building. Opening on the St. Jude campus in November 2007, the building will house St. Jude’s Department of Radiological Sciences,
the national Pediatric Brain Tumor Consortium (PBTC), inpatient beds and activity areas and new research laboratories. To date, Chili’s has raised more
than $10.5 million for the hospital.
