The Farm Fresh Burger Concept Will Continue Fundraising Efforts Year-Round in 2021
Riverside, CA (RestaurantNews.com) Farmer Boys®, the farm fresh fast casual concept known for its award-winning burgers, cooked-to-order menu, and friendly service, raised $100,000 for Loma Linda University Children’s Health (LLUCH) during its 20th annual fundraiser.
Beginning in July, guests had the opportunity to round up their change to the nearest whole dollar, with funds going to help save children’s lives and assist the caregivers directly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Due to the success of the fundraiser, Farmer Boys has pledged to continue its round up efforts in support of children’s health through 2021.
“For over 20 years, it has been a priority for Farmer Boys to lend a helping hand and better the lives of children in our community,” said Larry Rusinko, vice president and chief marketing officer of Farmer Boys. “Despite the challenges brought upon by this unprecedented year, it was important for us to find a way to make a difference and provide support Loma Linda University Children’s Health.”
On March 9, 2021, Farmer Boys’ President and COO Dave Wetzel, along with other members of the Farmer Boys team, held a virtual check presentation with LLUCH’s Administrative, Child Life, and Foundation divisions. Since launching the fundraiser in 2000, Farmer Boys has fundraised and donated over $1,100,000 to LLUCH, and every dollar collected helps provide world-class clinical care and outreach programs to children in San Bernardino, Riverside, Inyo, and Mono counties.
