Nationwide fundraiser set for April 10
BATON ROUGE, La. (April 4, 2018) – Raising Cane’s Chicken Fingers, the Louisiana-based restaurant company known for its ONE LOVE® – quality chicken finger meals – is launching a national partnership with Lemonade Day, a non-profit organization that teaches youth how to start, own, and operate their very own business – a lemonade stand.
Raising Cane’s Founder & CEO Todd Graves helped bring Lemonade Day to Louisiana in 2011. Since then, Raising Cane’s restaurants across the state have been actively involved in supporting and promoting the organization.
This year, nearly all of Raising Cane’s U.S. locations – more than 370 restaurants in 23 states – will be stirring up success by participating in a nation-wide fundraiser for Lemonade Day.
On Tuesday, April 10, Raising Cane’s restaurants will donate $1 to the organization for every lemonade purchased from open to close on the fundraising day.
“We are extremely proud to partner with Lemonade Day and to expand our support nation-wide,” said Graves. “My first taste of business came at a very young age when I operated a lemonade stand in my front yard and that spark ignited a young entrepreneur in me. Creating the opportunity for other kids to be inspired by business is exactly why I’m passionate about Lemonade Day.”
Lemonade Day is a free, fun, experiential learning program that has spread to over 57 cities in 23 states and three countries and has served over one million children across North America in the past decade. In addition to taking part in the fundraiser on April 10, Raising Cane’s customers can register a child to participate in Lemonade Day and give them a taste of the sweet success that comes with owning your own business.

Raising Cane’s is renowned for its fresh, never ever frozen chicken fingers, its craveable – some say addictive – secret-recipe Cane’s sauce, crinkle-cut fries, coleslaw, Texas toast, freshly brewed sweet tea and fresh-squeezed lemonade.
