SEATTLE, Nov 12, 2009 (BUSINESS WIRE) – Now through Jan. 3, 2010, Restaurants Unlimited, Inc. (RUI) is conducting an aggressive fund-raising campaign for select Children’s Hospital foundations in the communities its restaurants serve. Its goal is to raise $300,000 system wide in kind for the foundations.

The program is simple: For every gift card purchased Nov. 2, 2009 through Jan. 3, 2010 at any RUI restaurant or online, RUI will donate five percent of the purchase amount as in kind to the Children’s Hospital partner for that respective market, to be used for dining-related fundraising activities.
