Kidd Kraddick

Chili’s remembers Kidd Kraddick

Over the years, Kidd Kraddick and the entire family of “Kidd Kraddick in the Morning” have given back to the Dallas-Fort Worth community in more ways than we can simply tell you about here on our blog. At Chili’s we’re based in Dallas along with Kidd and the crew, and have partnered together many times to help raise awareness for the show’s annual “Breaking and Entering” extravaganza around the holidays, where we’ve donated free Chili’s for a year. And Kidd has been very supportive of Chili’s annual campaign for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® by promoting our efforts on the show and taking a moment to pose with a Chili’s Manager dropping off food.

kiddskidsWe’ve partnered together a lot over the years, and in the same spirit of Kidd giving back to the community, we want to take the time to remember Kidd by giving back to the nonprofit organization he founded, Kidd’s Kids.

Kidd’s Kids purpose is to give kids with special medical needs the adventure of a lifetime, so in honor of Kidd’s legacy, Chili’s team members across the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex and beyond are showing our support and appreciation through an all day Give Back Event. This Thursday, Aug. 1, 131 restaurants will donate 15 percent of our guests’ checks to Kidd’s Kids.

The idea was born in just a few restaurants in the Dallas area and has now grown to include restaurants in New Mexico, Oklahoma and throughout the state of Texas. To help pay homage to Kidd’s legacy, come out to your local Chili’s this Thursday, and let’s join together to remember a great man and talented disc jockey, who grew up alongside us in Dallas and went on to touch the lives of many nationwide.

Our full list of participating restaurants is below (UPDATED: 9:00AM 8/1/13). To participate, simply tell your server you’re dining in or taking food home for the Kidd’s Kids event.If your local Chili’s is participating, you can find contact info at www.chilis.com.

If your local restaurant is not participating, please donate to Kidd’s Kids at http://www.kiddskids.com/donate/ or by texting “KIDD” to 52000.
