Throughout the month of August, Texas de Brazil's domestic locations will provide guests the opportunity to donate money directly at the bottom of their check to the hospital. As an added incentive, the restaurant is providing gift certificates for future visits to guests who donate $5 or more. Texas de Brazil will join guests in making a contribution and will match donations up to $25,000.
"St. Jude is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases," stated Salim Asrawi, Chief Operating Officer of Texas de Brazil. "Thanks to its many individual contributors, families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food, because all a family should worry about is helping their child live. Texas de Brazil is honored to support this cause, and provide our customers with an opportunity to contribute."
For more than 50 years, St. Jude has helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20 to 80 percent, and won't stop until no child dies from cancer. St. Jude also freely shares the discoveries it makes, and every child saved at St. Jude means doctors and scientists worldwide can use that knowledge to save thousands more children.
No purchase is required to donate. Call your local Texas de Brazil for more information.
