PHILADELPHIA, PA – BurgerFi in Philly is “shaking things up” to support St. Jude Children's Research Hospital in its mission to defeat childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases.
Beginning February 22, the popular better-burger chain will be donating $1 from every featured shake purchased from their rotating menu of seasonal flavors. BurgerFi’s signature Oreo Chocolate Mint Cookie Shake will kick off the year-long initiative, and a new fundraising shake flavor will be featured every six weeks. The shake features vanilla custard, chocolate sauce and crushed Oreo cookies topped with whipped cream, mint and two Oreo Mint cookies.
St. Jude is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20 percent to more than 80 percent since it opened more than 50 years ago. St. Jude freely shares the discoveries it makes, and every child saved means doctors and scientists worldwide can use that knowledge to save thousands more children.
“BurgerFi is proud to partner with St. Jude, and we invite our guests to enjoy our shakes in order to help give St. Jude the freedom to focus on what matters most – saving children regardless of their financial situation,” said Corey Winograd, CEO of BurgerFi. “Our hope is that with our support and with the help of the communities in which we reside, BurgerFi will make a difference in hundreds of families’ lives, one shake at a time.”
Known for delivering the all-natural burger experience in a fast-casual environment, BurgerFi has a commitment to quality food that ensures no steroids, antibiotics, growth hormones, chemicals or additives are ever used. In addition to using Angus beef that is humanely raised and sustainably farmed, all recipes are created from natural, fresh ingredients. Its partnership with St. Jude supports the hospital’s mission to ensure that families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food – because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.
In addition to its popular shakes, BurgerFi’s offerings feature chef-driven menu items, including their made-in-house VegeFi burger, Vienna hot dogs with all the fixings, fresh hand-cut fries and onion rings served with housemade sauces, frozen custard, natural sugar cane sodas, and a variety of craft burgers.
