The Melting Pot Restaurants raised $605,000 for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital during the 11th annual St. Jude Thanks and Giving campaign.

This brings the company’s total raised for St. Jude to more than $9 million since the fondue restaurant franchise established its partnership with the hospital in 2003.

From Oct. 11 – Dec. 14, 2014, The Melting Pot provided every guest who donated $10 to St. Jude during the St. Jude Thanks and Giving campaign with a Donate and Dine card valid for $20 off a future purchase of $50 or more.

An internal competition encouraged team members to ask every guest for a donation, and The Melting Pot of Ft. Collins, Colorado broke The Melting Pot record it set in 2013 for the most funds raised, netting more than $40,000 for St. Jude in 2014.

“Our team members’ commitment to the hospital’s mission to find cures for pediatric cancer and other life-threatening diseases grows stronger every year,” says Mike Lester, president of The Melting Pot Restaurants.
