Melting Pot raises $200K for St. Jude’s

Customers of The Melting Pot restaurants have shown that their dollars can add up to help save children’s lives.

More than $200,000 was raised during a nationwide promotion helping St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital fight childhood cancer.

From Nov. 1 to Dec. 31, 2003. The Melting Pot asked its guests to make their dollars count with the Your Dollar Makes a Difference campaign. At the end of the dining experience, patrons were asked to add a donation to their bill. In return for each dollar donated, guests received a $10 dip certificate towards a future visit to the restaurant.

“We are very excited about the response to this promotion and how greatly it affected the communities we serve.” said Bob Johnston, president and CEO of the Melting Pot restaurants. “Our customers realized what a great cause St. Jude is and contributed in any way they could to help us fight childhood cancer.”

“The doors of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital could not remain open without he generous support of corporations like The Melting Pot,” said Dave McKee, chief operating officer of ALSAC/St. Jude, the fund-raising arm of the hospital. “Our staff, patients and families deeply appreciate the generosity of everyone involved in supporting our mission of finding cures and saving children from all over the world.”
