Offering their support for the second year in a row, Metro Diner will unite with the National Pediatric Cancer Foundation (NPCF) to change children’s lives. The two Tampa-based organizations are repeating their successful “round-up” campaign during Childhood Cancer Awareness Month in September to help raise funds for clinical trials to find a faster cure in eliminating pediatric cancer.
Now through Monday, September 30, guests at all 71 Metro Diner locations can opt to round their check up to the nearest dollar. They can also choose to donate $1, $2, $5 or a custom amount. All funds will go directly towards clinical trials and drugs that focus exclusively on childhood cancers, which affect approximately 1 in every 85 kids in the United States.
“We are excited to partner with the National Pediatric Cancer Foundation once again to help them reach their fundraising goals,” says Crafton Bryant, director of marketing for Metro Diner. “Metro Diner is honored to be able to raise awareness for an organization that is making huge strides and uncovering new developments to treat these devastating illnesses.”
Known for its extensive menu of bold flavors and American classics, the award-winning Metro Diner is dedicated to the communities and people it serves. Since 1991, NCPF has donated millions of dollars to research that has yielded amazing discoveries and saved thousands of children’s’ lives. One of the nation’s top-rated charities, they received a 100 percent score from Charity Navigator for their financial health and transparency.
“Finding a cure for pediatric cancer research is so important, and we appreciate that the caring team at Metro Diner has committed themselves to the round-up campaign again this year,” says David Frazer, CEO of the National Pediatric Cancer Foundation. “Metro Diner and its loyal guests are valuable allies in our pursuit of a cure.”
