Mill Creek restaurant partners with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital to treat deadly childhood diseases.
During this time, Boston’s locations across the United States will collect proceeds from one specialty menu item, heart-shaped pizzas and paper hearts to support groundbreaking research and treatment of children with cancer and other deadly diseases.
Boston’s will offer a special dessert menu option, Red Velvet Cheesecake, along with paper hearts available for purchase throughout the duration of the campaign. $1 from the sale of every Red Velvet Cheesecake along with 100 percent of the paper heart proceeds will go directly to Boston’s Pizza Foundation, benefitting St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
In addition, the restaurant will offer the following for a limited time:
- Feb. 11-17: Pizza Week – $1 from the sale of every pizza and flatbread will be donated.
- Feb. 13-15: Heart-shaped pizzas – Individual, small and medium size pizzas will be available as heart-shaped creations in honor of Valentine’s Day.
The Boston’s Cares initiative has raised more than $600,000 in support of charities across the United States since 1999.
“Charitable contributions to organizations such as St. Jude are very important to the Boston’s family,” said Jennifer Haffner, owner of Boston’s Restaurant & Sports Bar in Mill Creek, Bellingham and Smokey Point. “Our goal is to be an involved partner in this community, and we are committed to helping in any way we can.”
“We are truly grateful for the partnership with Boston’s Restaurant & Sports Bar,” said Jessie Miller, Liaison - Field Promotions for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. “On average, 7,800 active patients visit our hospital every year, and through programs like Boston’s Cares, we are able to provide the type of care each and every one of these patients deserves.”
Since opening its doors 50 years ago, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital has made great discoveries in how to treat deadly childhood diseases like cancer, saving the lives of kids around the world.
Families never pay St. Jude for treatment and St. Jude covers the cost of travel, lodging and food for each patient and a family member. During the past five years, 81 cents of every dollar received has supported the research and treatment at St. Jude.
