Town Square Restaurants Supporting Kids With Cancer in September | Charity
Several Town Square restaurants are showing their philanthropic side this September by partnering with Cure 4 The Kids Foundation and offering a way for the public to support Childhood Cancer Awareness Month.
A portion of sales from various items on the menus will go to Cure 4 The Kids Foundation, a 501 (c) 3 nonprofit organization that funds the Children's Specialty Center. It is the only nonprofit pediatric cancer outpatient treatment center in the state of Nevada.
Unfortunately, families throughout southern Nevada learn everyday that cancer is a life-changing event. Many will also learn that the health insurance they thought would cover their children's diagnosis doesn't begin to address all of their needs. Those without any health insurance will see their options for treatment severely limited.
Getting proper and timely treatment is essential for these children to improve their chances of surviving and with the least amount of long-term effects. This is what the Cure 4 The Kids Foundation strives to do.
The following restaurants have come to the table with special donation polans and will be participating over a designated weekend in September.

Fracos & Fröccs - Donating 50 percent of the Mandarin/Pomegranate Fröcc.
Blue Martini – Donating 2 percent from its Signature Blue Martini.

“We’re so thrilled that Town Square Las Vegas is supporting the community and the families whose children need this specialized treatment,” said Annette Logan, President and Executive Director of Cure 4 The Kids Foundation. “Many people assume that medical facilities in our community are required to treat these children facing cancer who don’t have insurance--they are not. Sadly, some parents are left with no options.”
Cure 4 The Kids Foundation, a 501(c) 3 nonprofit organization, funds The Children’s Specialty Center of Nevada. It is the only nonprofit pediatric cancer outpatient treatment center in the state of Nevada. It is one of the only facilities capable and willing to treat children with or without insurance. The Foundation’s Charity Care Plan helps pay for this treatment.
