Dine at Chili’s on September 28 and support St. Jude

From: St. Jude Children's Research Hospital

This Monday, Chili’s Grill & Bar® asks you to dine out for lunch or dinner (or both!) and support St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

On September 28, as National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month comes to a close, participating Chili’s restaurants around the country will be donating 100 percent of the day’s profits to St. Jude. It’s called Donate Our Profits Day at Chili’s and it is part of Chili’s month-long Create-A-Pepper to Fight Childhood Cancer campaign.

During September, guests can make a donation to St. Jude and receive a coloring sheet they can decorate and have displayed in the restaurant. Since September 1, thousands have stopped by their local Chili’s to Create-A-Pepper and used their creativity and imagination to color peppers and show their support for children fighting cancer.

“We are thankful to have enthusiastic and generous partners like Chili’s,” said Richard C. Shadyac Jr., chief executive officer of ALSAC, the fundraising organization of St. Jude. “Even during tough economic times, Chili’s honors its commitment to donate 100 percent of one day’s profit to support St. Jude. Every dollar donated by Chili’s guests helps St. Jude continue our efforts in finding the cures and providing the treatments that will save children's lives.”

In addition to dining at Chili’s on September 28 and creating a pepper, patrons can support St. Jude in other ways:

Purchase Create-A-Pepper T-shirts that can be customized with permanent marker.
Buy a customized Create-A-Pepper key that can be cut for use at home or the office.
Visit to make an online donation.

So stop by your participating Chili’s restaurant and help St. Jude in the fight against childhood cancer.
