Chili's and St Jude's Team UP....If you are looking to eat out today....Try Chili's, it is for a GREAT cause!!!

Good Morning! Below, I have copied an email my mom sent out this morning.
Please help with our fight against Childhood Cancer!!!

Friends, please read below regarding St Judes and Chili's!! If you are out
and about looking for a place to eat lunch or dinner, maybe Chili's????
They will donate all of today's profits to St Judes!!!

Dine at Chili's on September 28 and support St. Jude
This Monday, Chili's Grill & Bar asks you to dine out for lunch or dinner
(or both!) and support St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.

On September 28, as National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month comes to a
close, participating Chili's restaurants around the country will be donating
100 percent of the day's profits to St. Jude. It's called Donate Our Profits
Day at Chili's and it is part of Chili's month-long Create-A-Pepper to Fight
Childhood Cancer campaign.

During September, guests can make a donation to St. Jude and receive a
coloring sheet they can decorate and have displayed in the restaurant. Since
September 1, thousands have stopped by their local Chili's to
Create-A-Pepper and used their creativity and imagination to color peppers
and show their support for children fighting cancer.

"We are thankful to have enthusiastic and generous partners like Chili's,"
said Richard C. Shadyac Jr., chief executive officer of ALSAC, the
fundraising organization of St. Jude. "Even during tough economic times,
Chili's honors its commitment to donate 100 percent of one day's profit to
support St. Jude. Every dollar donated by Chili's guests helps St. Jude
continue our efforts in finding the cures and providing the treatments that
will save children's lives."

In addition to dining at Chili's on September 28 and creating a pepper,
patrons can support St. Jude in other ways:

Purchase Create-A-Pepper T-shirts that can be customized with permanent
Buy a customized Create-A-Pepper key that can be cut for use at home or the
Visit to make an online donation.

So stop by your participating Chili's restaurant and help St. Jude in the
fight against childhood cancer.

This is a wonderful opportunity to give to a cause that is lacking the necessary funds to help all of the children who battle cancer!!
