Hungry for a cure? Eat at Hardee’s to help kids with brain tumors
Join Hardee’s and show your support for kids with brain tumors! Customers who make a donation for a PBTF pinup will also receive valuable discount coupons at participating stores.
Hardee’s® restaurants in four states have kicked off a fundraising drive for the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation Ride for Kids. For a $1 donation to the PBTF, customers at participating stores will receive a customizable pinup to display in the store, as well as coupons for Hardee’s bestsellers such as biscuits, burgers and combos.
“The charity campaign will run for five weeks beginning this week and ending on April 8,” said Pate Fee, regional marketing manager for Hardee’s Food Systems. “Last year we raised over $101,000. This year our goal is to reach $175,000.”
Hardee’s started the promotion in 2010 in Tennessee, where customers have contributed more than $220,000 to date. This year 144 stores are participating in Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi and Tennessee.
“We are grateful that Hardee’s is dedicated to helping us find a cure for one of the deadliest forms of childhood cancer,” said PBTF President and CEO Robin Boettcher. “Their support is giving hope to the 28,000 Americans living with the diagnosis of a pediatric brain tumor.”
The promotion runs for the next five weeks, and coupons are available while supplies last.
