Farmer Boys Restaurants Raise More Than $8,000 For UMC Children’s Hospital and Will Continue Fundraising Efforts Through 2021
Funds will be used to Improve Patient Experience Efforts and Pediatric Care At The Nevada Hospital
April 07, 2021 // Franchising.com // LAS VEGAS, Nev. - Farmer Boys®, the farm fresh casual concept known for serving award-winning burgers, cooked-to-order menu, and friendly service, raised $8,384 during its third annual fundraiser for UMC Children’s Hospital.
Beginning in July, guests had the opportunity to round up their change to the nearest whole dollar, with funds going directly to help save children’s lives and assist their hospital caregivers. Due to the success of the fundraiser, Farmer Boys has pledged to continue its efforts in support of children’s health through 2021.
“It was extremely important for Farmer Boys to support health care workers and children’s health during this unprecedented pandemic, “said Larry Rusinko, vice president and chief marketing officer of Farmer Boys. “Despite the challenges our franchisees, team members, and guests were facing, all were eager to help save children’s lives and assist the caregivers directly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. We are very proud of what we have accomplished together in lending a helping hand and bettering the lives of children in our communities.”
Maria Novia, area manager for Farmer Boys, will present the check to Mason Van Houweling, CEO of UMC, during a ceremony presentation on March 31, 2021. Farmer Boys first partnered with UMC Children’s Hospital in 2018 to give back to the Las Vegas community. Since then, Farmer Boys has donated more than $25,000 to UMC Children’s Hospital and over $1 million towards children’s health since 2000.
