DALLAS — Pollo Campero’s annual St. Jude cup fundraiser has returned for a third year in recognition of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, conveying the restaurant’s ongoing support of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital’s mission: Finding cures. Saving children.
The collectible cup, featuring artwork by St. Jude patients, will be available at participating Pollo Campero restaurants through the end of November or while supplies last. For $5, guests can purchase a cup filled with their choice of fountain soda or agua fresca, and $3 will be donated to St. Jude Children’s Hospital.
“Our guests really embrace our St. Jude cup fundraiser each year, and we hope this will be the biggest year yet,” said Luis Javier Rodas, Pollo Campero managing director and COO. “We look forward to partnering with our guests to further the inspiring work of St. Jude.”
The St. Jude collectible cup continues Pollo Campero’s ongoing support of St. Jude Children’s Hospital’s lifesaving care. Pollo Campero has supported the St. Jude mission for six years and was named Emerging Partner of the Year in 2018, the company noted. This partnership has helped to raise $260,000 to date.
The Guatemalan-born fast service restaurant will also sponsor other St. Jude initiatives in September, including the 18th annual St. Jude Night of Hope/Noche de Esperanza Gala in Dallas on Sept. 9 and the St. Jude Walk/Run later in the month. The gala, which kicks off Hispanic Heritage Month, celebrates the many ways the Hispanic community supports St. Jude and its mission through an event featuring inspirational stories from St. Jude patients and supporters, the company added.
