Texas de Brazil, the Brazilian steakhouse, is thrilled to provide its customers the opportunity to support St. Jude Children's Research Hospital in its life-saving mission of finding cures and saving children from cancer and other deadly diseases.

Throughout the month of June, Texas de Brazil's domestic locations will provide guests the platform to give $1, $5, or $10 directly from their check to the hospital. Texas de Brazil will join guests in making a contribution and match donations up to $15,000.

"St. Jude is leading the way the world understands, treats, and defeats childhood cancer and other deadly diseases," says Salim Asrawi, chief operating officer of Texas de Brazil. "While the daily operating cost for St. Jude is $1.9 million, families never receive a bill from St. Jude thanks to its many individual contributors. Texas de Brazil is honored to support this cause, and provide our customers with an opportunity to contribute."

For 50 years, St. Jude has had a history of taking on many of the most difficult and underserved pediatric diseases. St. Jude sees on average 7,800 children a year from throughout the United States and from around the world, while many more children are seen at the six St. Jude affiliate sites.
