BATON ROUGE, LA (Sept. 9, 2016) – In response to the devastating flood in our community, Raising Cane’s is doing their part to aid in helping those affected.
On Wednesday, Sept. 14, all Greater Baton Rouge-area Raising Cane’s Chicken Fingers restaurants will donate 100 percent of net proceeds to Baton Rouge Area Foundation’s Flood Relief Fund that benefits flood recovery throughout south Louisiana.
“The recent flooding in our area has been devastating, and it’s heartbreaking to see how much our crew and neighbors have lost,” said Todd Graves, Founder & CEO of Raising Cane’s. “All of us at Cane’s want to do our part to help our hometown and headquarters, so we felt this was a great way to give back,” Graves adds.
In addition to the fundraiser on Wednesday, Raising Cane’s has also donated more than $100,000 to area organizations’ flood relief efforts including BRAF, Capital Area United Way and LABI Foundation Small Business Relief Fund.
All 21 Greater Baton Rouge restaurants, including those in Hammond, are participating in Wednesday’s fundraising effort.
