Raising Cane’s Chicken Fingers recently hosted its eighth annual Kidd’s Kids fundraiser where more than 150 participating restaurants nationwide donated 15% of the day’s net proceeds to the memory-making charitable program started by legendary radio host Kidd Kraddick.
On Nov. 13, Raising Cane’s Founder & CEO Todd Graves presented a check for $104,622 to Kidd’s Kids CEO Caroline Kraddick and the cast of The Kidd Kraddick Morning Show.
“We are proud supporters of Kidd’s Kids and huge fans of The Kidd Kraddick Morning Show, so we always look forward to hosting this fundraiser each year,” Graves said. “Thanks to our generous customers, Raising Cane’s is able to continue to support Kidd’s Kids’ incredible work with these brave children and their families. We are honored to have the opportunity to help continue Kidd’s extraordinary legacy with his daughter Caroline.”
Raising Cane’s has been a Kidd’s Kids partner for eight years and with this year’s donation, the company has donated more than $600,000 to the organization.
Founded in 1991, Kidd’s Kids was developed on the premise of making a difference in the lives of children with life-altering and life-threatening conditions. During the five-day trip, which is scheduled for Nov. 21-25 this year, Kidd’s Kids and their families enjoy all the excitement that a Walt Disney World getaway can offer. For many families, this is a rare opportunity to escape hospitals and treatment centers and share laughter and fun in a magical environment. Kidd’s Kids covers all expenses related to the trip.
“We are grateful for Todd, his team and Caniacs nationwide for their continued support and generosity,” said Caroline Kraddick, daughter of Kidd Kraddick, who now serves as CEO and Chief Happiness Officer of her late father’s legacy. “We could not provide such an exciting and once in a lifetime experience without the support of our listeners and partners like Raising Cane’s. We couldn’t be more grateful for this ongoing partnership and can’t wait for this year’s trip. It’s going to be magical!”
The Kidd Kraddick Morning Show is a syndicated morning radio show heard on more than 65 stations across the country, and on American Forces Radio, from 6 – 10 a.m. CT. To learn more, visit KiddNation.com.
