Milkshake promotion in honor of Children's Day

AVENTURA, Fla., Nov. 19, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Benihana, the nation's leading operator of Japanese-inspired Teppanyaki

and Sushi Restaurants, has donated over $70,000 to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital as part of their long-standing commitment to helping children in need and their broader initiative to celebrate their Japanese heritage.

Children's Day is a Japanese national holiday celebrated annually on May 5. The day was established to respect children's personalities and to celebrate their happiness, and Benihana has supported this holiday through various children's donation programs since 2009.

From May 22 through November 12, Benihana restaurants featured a St. Jude Milkshake on their menu, with $2 from every milkshake sold donated to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. Guests could choose from Classic Strawberry, featuring a strawberry pocky stick and whipped cream, or Cookies and Cream with an OREOŽ and whipped cream.

"Benihana is proud to be a long-time supporter of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital," said Benihana Chief Executive Officer Tom Baldwin. "St. Jude is a partner who fully supports our long-term commitment to helping children in need."

The mission of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital is to advance cures, and means of prevention, for pediatric catastrophic diseases through research and treatment. Consistent with the vision of their founder Danny Thomas, no child is denied treatment based on race, religion or a family's ability to pay.
