Funds Will Be Used For Patient Experience Efforts
LAS VEGAS, Nev. (January 23, 2020) — Farmer Boys®, the farm fresh fast casual known for its award-winning burgers, cooked-to-order menu, and friendly service, raised $10,124 during its second annual fundraiser for UMC Children’s Hospital. Donations were collected through in-store customer donations and team member fundraising efforts from July 23 to September 2, 2019.
“We’re proud to provide support for Nevada’s only designated pediatric trauma center,” said Larry Rusinko, vice president and chief marketing officer for Farmer Boys. “Our partnership with UMC reinforces our commitment to make a profound impact in the communities in which we operate, beyond serving high-quality, farm fresh food.”
Farmer Boys team members Eyvar Cruz, Philip Phillipou, and Ryan Distelrath presented the check to UMC CEO Mason VanHouweling during a check presentation ceremony on December 18, 2019.
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 $20,000 to UMC Children’s Hospital and over $1 million towards children’s health since 2000.
