Promotion will take place in September in Honor of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month; Proceeds will Fund Childhood Cancer Research Through the Chicken Salad Chick Foundation
ATLANTA, Aug. 18, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Chicken Salad Chick, the nation's only fast-casual chicken salad restaurant concept, announced today the launch of its Cookies for a CURE promotion as part of a nationwide initiative to raise money and support pediatric cancer research. Beginning September 5, Chicken Salad Chick will be selling new Lemon Burst Buttercream Cookies at all participating locations. Chicken Salad Chick will donate a portion of the proceeds from Cookies for a CURE directly to their partner organization, CURE Childhood Cancer, whose mission is dedicated to childhood cancer research while supporting patients and their families.
The cookies will be available for purchase throughout September in honor of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month and will be available while supplies last. The limited Lemon Burst Buttercream Cookies will be topped with a natural lemon zest buttercream frosting in honor of the gold ribbon which serves as the international symbol for Childhood Cancer.
"On behalf of the entire Chicken Salad Chick community, we are proud to support CURE and their commitment to finding a cure for cancer - a cause that is so close to our hearts as an organization and to our foundation's mission to fight cancer," said Scott Deviney, CEO of Chicken Salad Chick. "To honor Childhood Cancer Awareness Month this September, we're appreciative to all customers able to purchase our Cookies for a CURE and know that by doing so they are helping support targeted cancer research."
Chicken Salad Chick expects to donate over $40,000 directly to CURE based on the supplies allotted for Cookies for a CURE.
Earlier this year, Chicken Salad Chick announced it raised over $420,000 on behalf of its annual Giving Card program to support local food charities and cancer research. A sizeable portion of these funds was donated directly to CURE to support the organization's efforts to fund new research in the fight against childhood cancer.
"With the support from our partnership with Chicken Salad Chick and their generosity, we were able to set a record this year with grants for childhood cancer research totaling more than $4.7 million," said Kristin Connor, CEO of CURE Childhood Cancer. "September is an important month for us as Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, and we are grateful to Chicken Salad Chick for raising awareness through their Cookies for a CURE promotion."
The CSC Foundation was created in 2014 by Chicken Salad Chick's founders, Kevin and Stacy Brown, with a mission to fight cancer and feed the hungry. Through the growth of the foundation, CSC has had tremendous opportunities to impact the lives of those in need through initiatives like the annual Giving Card program and now Cookies for a CURE. The CSC Foundation has helped secure the future of CSC's philanthropy by setting a positive example across the Chicken Salad organization.
