Farmer Boys® To Sponsor 33rd Annual Children’s Day At Loma Linda University Children’s Hospital For The 7th Consecutive Year

The Annual Free-To-The-Public LLUCH Event Returns May 9

April 12, 2018 // Franchising.com // RIVERSIDE, CA - Farmer Boys®, the popular fast casual concept known for their farm fresh burgers and all-day cooked-to-order breakfast, will once again sponsor the 33rd Annual Children’s Day at Loma Linda University Children’s Hospital. The restaurant chain has proudly sponsored the event for the last 7 years, and supports LLUCH year-round through annual fundraisers and opportunities like Children’s Day.

The free event, which will take place Wednesday, May 9 beginning at 8:30 A.M. on LLUCH’s North Lawn, is a community health fair aimed at providing young children (ages three to eight years old) with non-threatening exposure to a hospital setting. Local children and families are invited to participate in various hands-on learning activities designed to ease nervousness about being in a hospital. Activities will include a Teddy Bear Clinic, where kids can bring a doll or stuffed animal for a check-up; Fire Safety booth, where children will learn to extinguish a fire using water and fire balloons; Show & Tell with Dr. Bill Hayes, featuring an array of creatures like rattlesnakes, lizards, and more. The annual health fair attracts more than 1,500 local children and their parents each year.

Since 2000, Farmer Boys has donated nearly $720,000 to LLUCH. The money has been used to purchase heart monitors and vein viewers, fund Children’s Day and the development of a new Children’s Tower, and has helped provide world-class clinical care and outreach programs to children in San Bernardino, Riverside, Inyo, and Mono Counties.

“We are proud to be long-standing community partners with Loma Linda University Children’s Hospital,” said Karen Eadon, President and COO of Farmer Boys. “LLUCH does so much good for the local children and families in Riverside and beyond, and having Farmer Boys be able to contribute to even a small slice of that is a real honor for us as a company.”
