The Jack in the Box Foundation announced it donated a total of $300,000 to three non-profit organizations: No Kid Hungry, The First Tee and Every Monday Matters. Each received $100,000, which was raised during the 29th annual Jack in the Box Charity Golf Tournament held April 17-18 in Palm Desert, California.
More than 400 Jack in the Box restaurant franchisees, employees and vendors attended the event at the Hyatt Regency Indian Wells Resort & Spa. Joining the Jack in the Box Foundation as presenting sponsor for this year’s event was the National Jack in the Box Franchisee Association.
“This is a great event that annually raises a lot of money for charity,” says Brian Luscomb, president of The Jack in the Box Foundation. “Many thanks to our franchise community, employees and vendors for their tremendous support, and to our team of volunteers who worked tirelessly to make this year’s event so successful. We’re especially grateful to the National Jack in the Box Franchisee Association for once again stepping up to join our foundation as the event’s co-presenting sponsor.”
The donations expand the financial support that Jack in the Box and its franchisees have provided to nonprofit organizations across its system, which will exceed more than $1.7 million in fiscal 2019. Additional beneficiaries include Make-A-Wish Foundation, Boys & Girls Club, March of Dimes, YMCA, Big Brothers Big Sisters, USS Midway Museum, Alliance for Children’s Rights, Monarch School and Warrior Foundation.
