Special to The Sun
It won’t be the same this year, as the Kidd Kraddick in the Morning crew dedicates its entire four-hour show on Oct. 23 to raising funds for the annual Kidd’s Kids trip to Disney World.
For the first time, Kidd’s Kids Day will go on without its creator, the legendary Kidd Kraddick, who died suddenly while attending a golf tournament benefiting his beloved charity in July.
Raising Cane’s Chicken Fingers remains committed to the special children that Kraddick devoted his life to, and will once again collect donations from customers on Kidd’s Kids Day this Wednesday.
For the second consecutive year, Raising Cane’s is the exclusive physical collection point nationwide for Kidd’s Kids donations.
Kidd’s Kids, a program of the Kraddick Foundation, was established in 1991 with the hope of making a difference in the lives of terminally and chronically ill children. Each year, Kidd's Kids offers five amazing days of suspended reality to more than 50 children whose lives have been ravaged by disease, with an all-expenses paid dream vacation to Walt Disney World for the children and their immediate family.
On Oct. 23, Raising Cane’s customers will have the opportunity to make a donation in any amount to Kidd’s Kids at the register. No purchase is necessary. These donations will be added to 15 percent of net proceeds from sales made on Kidd’s Kids Day at more than 125 participating Cane’s restaurants.
Donations may also be made online through the Kidd’s Kids website, www.KiddsKids.com, or KiddsKids.com/Mobile (for smartphones), through the Southwest Airlines Kidd’s Kids Day Donation Hotline 888-792-5439/888-SWA-KIDZ from 6 a.m. to 1 p.m., or by texting “KIDD” to “52000” to donate $10.
Raising Cane’s has donated a total of $60,000 to the Kraddick Foundation this year. More information is available at www.RaisingCanes.com.
