Raising Cane's hosting 7th Annual Kidd's Kids Fundraiser Tuesday

DALLAS (NEWS RELEASE) - The following is a news release from Champion Management:

For the seventh consecutive year, Raising Cane’s Chicken Fingers will be a major sponsor of Kidd’s Kids, the life-changing charitable program started by legendary radio host Kidd Kraddick. 

On Tuesday, June 12, more than 1,800 Kidd’s Kids family members are eligible to eat free at any participating Raising Cane’s restaurants nationwide.

Also happening on Tuesday, June 12, Raising Cane’s customers will have the opportunity to make a donation in any amount to Kidd’s Kids at the register (no purchase necessary). In addition, over 130 participating Cane’s restaurants nationwide will donate 15 percent of net proceeds from the day’s sales to the charity.

“All of us at Cane’s are proud to support the Kidd’s Kids program, which has been doing amazing things for these brave children and their families for many years,” said Graves. “Over the last six years, we have raised over half a million dollars for Kidd’s Kids. We are big fans of The Kidd Kraddick Morning Show and we honored to help them continue Kidd Kradick’s legacy of good work.”

Founded in 1991, the Kraddick Foundation and Kidd’s Kids program were developed on the premise of making a difference in the lives of children with life-altering illnesses and special medical needs. During the five-day trip, which is scheduled for Nov. 15-19 this year, Kidd’s Kids and their families enjoy all the excitement that a Walt Disney World getaway can offer. For many families, this is a rare opportunity to escape hospitals and treatment centers and share laughter and fun in a magical environment. Kidd’s Kids covers all expenses related to the trip.

“Todd and his incredible team at Raising Cane’s are some of the most generous people I have ever met,” said Caroline Kraddick, daughter of legendary radio personality Kidd Kraddick, who now serves as CEO and Chief Happiness Officer of her late father’s foundation. “A large source of our funding for this trip comes from the outpouring of support we receive from our listeners and corporate sponsors like Raising Cane’s. We couldn’t be more grateful for their support and on-going partnership.”

The Kidd Kraddick Morning Show is a syndicated morning radio show heard on more than 65 stations across the country, and on American Forces Radio, from 6 – 10 a.m. CT. To learn more, visit KiddNation.com
