CureSearch Partners with Local Claim Jumper Restaurants to Conquer Childhood Cancer


January 12, 2009 (Bethesda, MD) - CureSearch National Childhood Cancer Foundation will partner with Claim Jumper restaurants for a special “dine-in or take-out” fundraising event on Tuesday, January 13th at their four restaurant locations in Illinois and Wisconsin.

Claim Jumper is one of the nation’s top rated restaurant chains, and features fine American fare in a warm, comfortable environment which includes exhibition cooking, where guests can watch their meals being prepared.

CureSearch exclusively supports the life-saving childhood cancer research of the Children’s Oncology Group (COG), the world’s premier pediatric cancer research collaborative.  This campaign will help raise awareness about childhood cancer, the #1 cause of death from disease in children in the United States.

All day on January 13th, guests must present a special “Conquer Childhood Cancer” coupon at restaurant locations in Lombard, Wheeling and Hoffman Estates in Illinois, as well as in Brookfield, Wisconsin.  Claim Jumper will donate 10 percent of all food and beverage sales to CureSearch for childhood cancer research.

“CureSearch is pleased to partner with Claim Jumper restaurants,” says Stacy Haller, Executive Director of CureSearch.  “We are grateful that one of America’s finest restaurant chains has joined in the fight to conquer childhood cancer.  Together, we can reach the day when every child with cancer is guaranteed a cure.”

“Helping children and families is part of Claim Jumper’s brand fabric and we’re thrilled to support CureSearch in their fundraising efforts,” said Dave Wear, regional manager for Claim Jumper restaurants throughout the Midwest. “For more than three decades, our restaurants have been known for promoting a warm, family-friendly environment, and Claim Jumper was recently named one of Parents magazine’s 10 Best Family Restaurant Chains.”
