#MoreHope for the kids of St. Jude

It’s one of our favorite times of the year… where Chili’s restaurants across the country come together  to raise donations for the kids of St. Jude. Today kicks off the month-long extravaganza.


It all started in 2002, when seven Memphis-area Chili’s restaurants gave guests the chance to color a chili-pepper shaped logo and donate $1 to St. Jude. That first year our team raised $14 thousand dollars! So after taking the campaign nationwide in 2004, we have more than $46 million dollars to fund the lifesaving treatment at St. Jude.

This year, we’re calling the campaign “More Hope for St. Jude Kids.” Just as More Life Happens Here at Chili’s every day, we want to celebrate the hope St. Jude gives kids with cancer and other deadly diseases.

The campaign runs through Wednesday, Sept. 25, and here are the ways you can donate to the cause:

  • Making a donation to decorate a coloring sheet;
  • Purchase a More Hope T-shirt for $12 or Slap Band for $4, where at least 62% of each purchase goes to St. Jude;
  • Donate online when placing To Go order;
  • Try our decadent Chocolate Peanut Butter Molten with Reese’s® Peanut Butter Cup® pieces, where 30 cents of every Molten goes to St. Jude;

Finally.. visit us on Monday, Sept. 23, where we donate 100% of profits for the day to St. Jude! Yep, you heard right… 100% OF PROFITS.
