Sixteen million coloring sheets later… you did it! We’re excited to announce that through the dedication of our guests and team members, we have donated more than $50 million to the kids and families of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®, making this the largest donation from a single-partner campaign in the history of the hospital.

With humble beginnings, our partnership with St. Jude began when seven Memphis-area Chili’s restaurants raised $14,000 with nothing more than crayons and our signature chili-pepper coloring sheets.

And after taking the campaign nationwide in 2004 and making a $50 million, 10-year commitment in 2006, the partnership has grown to be a passion and drive for all ChiliHeads as well as for you, our amazing guests and St. Jude supporters!

So thank you for everything you’ve done over the past decade in raising this $50 million for the great works St. Jude is doing to understand, treat and defeat childhood cancer and other deadly diseases.
