Fight childhood cancer with... queso?! Yes, today, you can do just that! Wednesday, Sept 21, 2016, is St. Jude Children's Research Hospital day at Chili's restaurants. What does that mean?

According to, guests at participating Chili’s restaurants can support lifesaving work at St. Jude by:

  • Decorating a pepper coloring sheet in restaurant for a donation and sharing on social media using the hashtag #CreateAPepper;
  • Adding a donation to their check using the tabletop tablet located on every restaurant table or through online to-go orders;
  • Purchasing a Create-A-Pepper T-shirt for $10 or promotional items such as a crazy straw or koozie for $1 when dining in restaurant*;
  • Going to their local Chili’s to celebrate St. Jude Day on Wednesday, Sept. 21. On this day only, Chili’s will donate at least $100,000 to St. Jude in celebration of the new commitment.

Chili's has a long-standing relationship with the children's hospital in Memphis, TN, which treats children from all over the world regardless of race, religion or ability to pay. The corporate offices, employees, and patrons all rally to support the work that St. Jude does. So, there you go... fight childhood cancer with queso. This is a win-win all around.

Our local Chili's can be found in front of Eastland Mall, off Green River Rd. in Evansville, IN.
