FARMER BOYS LAUNCHES INAUGURAL FUNDRAISER FOR UMC CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL

Farmer Boys Rewards Guests Who Donate With Free Menu Add-Ons & Commemorative Lapel Pin

LAS VEGAS, Nev. (August 28, 2018) — Farmer Boys®, the popular fast casual concept which has built a reputation on their farm fresh menu, comfortable restaurant atmosphere, and friendly staff, has announced their inaugural fundraiser supporting UMC Children’s Hospital. The in-store fundraiser will take place between August 28 and October 8 at all eight Farmer Boys locations in the greater Las Vegas area.

Guests who donate $1 will receive two free slices of thick, double-smoked bacon or a free hand-smashed avocado add-on on their next visit when they show their donation receipt. Guests who donate $5 will also receive a complimentary avocado or bacon add-on during their next visit, plus a branded commemorative lapel pin. All guests who donate to the fundraiser will have their names displayed on Champions for Children donation slips, for the duration of the fundraising period.

Every dollar collected during the fundraiser will be donated to UMC Children’s Hospital, which offers Nevada’s highest level of care to children in the community. Supported by a world-class team of medical professionals and the latest advances in health care technology, UMC Children’s Hospital is home to Nevada’s only designated pediatric trauma center and only pediatric robotic surgery program. Providing a full suite of pediatric services, including emergency care, surgical services, critical care, neonatal intensive care and burn care, in addition to a wide range of other specialties, UMC Children’s Hospital remains committed to saving and improving the lives of children in Nevada.

“It’s an honor to help raise critically-needed funds for such a deserving organization as UMC Children’s Hospital,” said Larry Rusinko, Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer for Farmer Boys. “Their dedication to making sick and injured children healthy by combining compassionate, family-centered care with modern technology is inspirational. For 18 years, our California restaurants have partnered with Loma Linda University Children’s Hospital and, with the generous help of our guests there, we have raised more than $720,000 for their programs. We strive to develop an equally successful relationship with UMC Children’s Hospital and help do our part to change the lives of children in Nevada.”
