Irvine, CA (RestaurantNews.com) Ruby’s Diner locations across Southern California and Hawaii are teaming up with CMN Children’s Hospitals in the name of charity to benefit their local Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals including Children’s Hospital of Orange County (CHOC Children’s), Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, Rady Children’s Hospital in San Diego and Kapiolani Medical Center for Women and Children in Hawaii. Beginning Sept. 1 through Oct. 10, Ruby’s Diner locations will be accepting donations to support the CMN children’s hospitals in their county with 100% of the money raised at each location going to the local CMN hospital.
In honor of this partnership, Ruby’s is introducing the Muddy Gummy Goody Shake, a limited-time only kid-inspired treat. The Muddy Gummy Goody Shake features a scrumptious blend of vanilla ice cream, Hershey’s chocolate syrup, Oreo cookie crumbles, then garnished with a whipped cream, more Oreo cookie crumbles and colorful gummy worms.
“The Muddy Gummy Goody shake was created to represent the creativity and fun kids have when they play with their food. Ruby’s wants the shake to be the symbol for child appreciation during this fundraising effort for the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals,” said Doug Cavanaugh, founder and CEO of Ruby’s Diner.
For 30 years, Ruby’s Diners have taken pride in being an active part of the communities they serve. Ruby’s “Fun” Raiser programs contribute to local schools, churches, sports teams and other community groups are an important part of the company’s family-driven operations.
Guests who contribute to the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals fundraiser will be recognized with special Miracle Balloon icons that feature their name. These icons will be used to create decorative murals for the windows and a wall at each Ruby’s to showcase the community spirit of each location.
