I received the following from the St. Jude Heroes folks:

Chili’s Bar and Grill has pledged $50 million over the next 10 years and helping to open the Chili’s Care Center at St. Jude in November. This will add 15 additional beds and be the among the premier brain tumor research center in the world. Tell everyone you know to eat at Chili’s on Monday, September 24, because ALL proceeds got to St. Jude that day. So take a break from your training diet for one day and eat out at Chili’s!

Sounds like a yummy idea! I will be on travel so I will plan a dinner at a nearby Chili's

Have an extra bite for me as we don't have them here. Impressive sponsorship!

We were there on Sunday. We made a contribution so my daughter could color a Chili Pepper to hang on the wall in the restaurant.

I was telling my husband about the St. Jude's Marathon we were talking about you!

We'll try to head out on Monday!

Thanks for the info. I'll try to stop into a Chilis if I can on Monday. They actually do have some healthy entrees highlighted on their menus.

Fantastic! I generally do not eat at Chili's but I will definitely make an exception! There is always salad!

Thanks for sharing such a great cause!
