Texas de Brazil announced a donation of more than $149,000 to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. It will directly benefit patients with childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases.
The Dallas-based restaurant partnered with St. Jude in a campaign that allowed guests to donate directly to the cause at the bottom of guest checks. No purchase was required. For every $5 donated, Texas de Brazil provided a $5 bounce-back certificate as incentive. The finale luncheon in October and funds from a silent auction of items donated by vendors and hospitality associates also were added to the final tally to support St. Jude in its life-saving mission.
