Eat Cheese Fries for a Good Cause

At last, a way to feel virtuous while stuffing your gullet with chili cheese fries and "Triple Dippers" at Chili's restaurants. On Monday, September 27, the 25-year-old burger chain will donate 100 percent of its profits for the day to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, one of the world's leading center for the research and treatment of pediatric cancers

Chili's has been a longtime supporter of St. Jude, encouraging customers to create custom pepper designs (like the one pictured here) in a yearly contest benefiting the charity.


To date Chili's has raised more than $30 million for the hospital. The chain's goal is to raise $50 million over a 10-year period, making it the single largest St. Jude donating partner.


There are more than 16 Chili's restaurants in the Dallas area. To find one near you, click here.
