As a Texas girl, Chili’s was where we went after football games and piano recitals. I have fond memories of chicken enchilada soup and their buffalo wings to start and fajitas to finish. Who needs dessert? Tomorrow I will be reliving those childhood memories as I dine out for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®. For the tenth year in a row, Chili’s is contributing 100 percent of net profits on this one day to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® as part of the brand’s annual More Hope Campaign for St. Jude.
To learn more about the More Hope Campaign, visit morehope.chilis.com. Guests can also stay in-the-know by following the brand on Facebook or joining Chili’s Email Club. Read on for more details!
To participate in Donate Profits Day, guests can either dine in-restaurant or place a To Go order with Chili’s Sept. 23 and 100 percent net profits of their check will go directly to St. Jude.
St. Jude is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other deadly diseases, and every September Chili’s partners with St. Jude to help continue the hospital’s lifesaving work. The More Hope Campaign also coincides with National Childhood Cancer Awareness month, giving guests yet another reason to come into their neighborhood Chili’s and take advantage of all the different fundraising opportunities the brand has to offer.
Guests’ support of More Hope Campaign elements, like Donate Profits Day, has helped Chili’s raise more than $46 million for St. Jude to date. With the goal of donating $50 million to St. Jude, the brand is just a few Donate Profits Day orders of Baby Back Ribs and Oldtimer® Cheeseburgers from reaching the 10-year commitment.
In addition to Donate Profits Day, there are a number of other ways guests can donate at their local Chili’s restaurant between now and the end of the More Hope Campaign Sept. 25:
- Doubling up on the giving by indulging in Chili’s new Chocolate Peanut Butter Molten Cake with 30 cents from every dessert ordered going to St. Jude;
- Coloring the brand’s signature chili-pepper shaped coloring sheet for a donation of the guest’s choice; and
- Purchasing a ready-to-color T-shirt featuring the More Hope Campaign logo for $12* and a MORE HOPE slap band for $4*.
*62 percent of the purchase price of each T-shirt, and 70 percent of the purchase price of each Slap Band sold will be donated to St. Jude.
