LAGUNA HILLS, Calif. (May 30, 2018) – In appreciation for the extraordinary support Raising Cane’s Chicken Fingers has received from customers in Southern California, Founder & CEO Todd Graves came to town to give back.
In keeping with the company’s philosophy on active community involvement, Graves presented a $15,000 check to DeAndre Jordan Treehouse Giving – a nonprofit that is committed to support, mentor and educate single parent families by providing enrichment opportunities and resources that enhance the whole family.
The check presentation took place on Tuesday, May 29, at the Raising Cane’s in Laguna Hills. NBA star and self-proclaimed “Caniac” DeAndre Jordan was in attendance to personally receive the donation on behalf of his foundation.
“It was exciting to be back here in Laguna Hills,” said Graves. “I worked as a boilermaker in El Segundo and Torrance to raise money to start Raising Cane’s more than 20 years ago. It’s always an incredible feeling to visit our California restaurants and to show our support of the local community here. DeAndre has been a true Caniac ever since his time at Texas A&M. He is a great leader on and off the court, and I admire his passion and the work of his foundation. We’re honored to show our support for him and the foundation’s initiative to raise awareness and facilitate meaningful experiences and programs that provide valuable tools to empower families.”
“It is important to me to give back and help others as I know how lucky and blessed I am,” said Jordan. “This donation from Cane’s and the money raised on Thursday will go a long way to help put smiles on many faces.”
In addition to the check presentation, Raising Cane’s will host a fundraiser from 4-8 p.m. on Thursday, May 31, at all 10 of its California restaurants. The company will donate 15% of sales during these hours to the DeAndre Jordan Treehouse Giving – when customers mention DeAndre Jordan. Raising Cane’s restaurants are located in the following cities:
