DALLAS, Aug. 1, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Guests dining at Texas de Brazil Churrascarias in the USA this August can support St. Jude Children's Research Hospital® in its life-saving mission: Finding cures. Saving children® as the Brazilian-American steakhouse brand offers its month-long fundraising campaign. Since beginning the summer campaign in 2013, Texas de Brazil and its patrons have raised nearly $400,000 for St. Jude.
During the month of August, Texas de Brazil guests dining at domestic locations can help support families seeking care at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. Contributions of any dollar amount may be simply added to the bottom of the check, and for every $5 donated, the guest will receive a $5 certificate to use at a later date. On Mondays, the incentive is doubled and for every $5 donated, the guest will receive $10 in certificates.

Texas de Brazil will be matching donations all month long up to $25,000 and no purchase is necessary to contribute.
"With the big-hearted support of our guests, we are proud to help St. Jude provide life-saving treatments and services for children fighting cancer and other life-threatening diseases," says Salim Asrawi, Chief Operating Officer of Texas de Brazil. "We value our continued partnership with the charity and we are extremely fortunate to have employees who are eager to promote the campaign and ensure its success," he adds.
Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20 percent when the hospital opened in 1962 to more than 80 percent today, and they won't stop until no child dies from cancer.
