Old Chicago Is Constantly Helping Out In The Community
Our locally owned Old Chicago is helping out in our community more than you might realize. And this year they are again helping the kids of St. Jude. As one of the sponsors for the radiothon this year Old Chicago has said they are going to help end childhood cancer.
During the holidays times can be tight for some families, Old Chicago recognizes that and has had a free Thanksgiving Day dinner at there restaurant for the past few years. While Old Chicago is a national franchise the local owners are the ones who decide what to do when it comes to charities and community events. They have helped with the MT Special Olympics and other great organizations.
Old Chicago has extended it’s hand once again and is helping the kids of St. Jude. By helping to sponsor the radiothon they are helping to stop cancer. The work done at St. Jude has an impact far and wide. They have helped to advance the survival rate of childhood cancers more than any other institution. The cure rate, in 1962, of the most common form of cancer, Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia, was 4% that meant 96 out of 100 children diagnosed would die… Today if you lined up those same 100 kids, 94 of them will now SURVIVE! They increased the survival rate by 90%. That is why we are constantly helping St. Jude.
Tune in to help the kids of St. Jude March 7th and 8th!
