Del Frisco’s Announces Partnership with St. Jude’s to Fight Childhood Cancer
Texas-based Del Frisco’s Restaurant Group, Inc. today announces a new partnership with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. The company will launch their first multi-year relationship with a national charity partner, committing to a fundraising goal of $5 million over the next five years to support the hospital that is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases.
Further activating the company’s purpose-driven culture and internal mission, “Celebrating Life in Restaurants,” a partnership with St. Jude allows Del Frisco’s Restaurant Group to extend the footprint of this core mission beyond restaurant walls. The multi-year relationship aimed at supporting efforts to end childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases is a cause that is meaningful to both guests and team members.
“St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital embodies the core of our company mission – celebrating life,” says Norman J. Abdallah, CEO of Del Frisco’s Restaurant Group. “This historic partnership establishes a philanthropic platform for our team members and guests to further engage with our communities on both a local and national level. There is no greater cause than one that strives to save the lives of children.”
Along with furthering Del Frisco’s Restaurant Group’s establishment of a national community working together to make a difference, this partnership helps ensure families at St. Jude never receive a bill for treatment, travel, housing or food—because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.
With the recent acquisition of Barcelona Wine Bar and bartaco, Del Frisco’s Restaurant Group team members and guests across 68 restaurants nationwide will contribute to the cause through an array of donation opportunities, philanthropic programming and activations.
