I don't know how many of you eat at Chili's or would be interested but I believe in the work St. Jude's does so I'm posting it here for anyone who's interested.
The closest Chili's to my house is 25 miles down the road but we still might try for it.
Another update. One of my visitors was concerned that this might be interpreted as 100% of the restaurant tab. Not so. As the press release and the post says, it's 100% of the profits; still a generous contribution.
Update: It occurred to me I should verify this. Here's the link to the Chili's Press Release
