What could make a delicious burger even better? How about when buying a burger turns into helping a great organization like Heroes for Children? Hopdoddy Burger Bar partnered with Heroes for Children in 2014 as part of their Goodnight for a Good Cause Program. From this partnership, one dollar from each Goodnight burger sold was donated to Heroes for Children. This year, Heroes for Children received $90,000 from this partnership, enabling the nonprofit to help 120 DFW area families who have children diagnosed with cancer!
Hopdoddy’s was declared to have the best burgers in America by celebrity cook Rachael Ray, and if you’ve visited the Hopdoddy location in Village on the Parkway you already know how great the food is. Hopdoddy Burger Bar’s charitable giving program, Goodnight for a Good Cause, helps worthy causes in the areas surrounding each of the restaurant’s 14 locations in Texas, Arizona, California, and Colorado.
The Goodnight/Good Cause Burger is made of Angus beef, Tillamook cheddar, caramelized onions, jalapenos, hickory barbecue sauce, “Sassy Sauce,” red leaf lettuce and beefsteak tomato. The burger sells for $8.25, with a dollar donated from each purchase from the three area Hopdoddy locations including Addison.
“Hopdoddy is the definition of a true hero for so many children,” commented Larissa Linton, co-founder and executive director of Heroes for Children. “Hopdoddy understands social change – not just from the corporate level but down to every single employee. The magnitude of their donation to Heroes for Children will continue to have ripple effects for years to come. When a child has cancer, it affects the entire family. Hopdoddy has made a difference in hundreds of Texans’ lives. Our gratitude is beyond measure.”
“At Hopdoddy, our goal is not only to give a great experience to our customers in the restaurant, but also to give back to the community that surrounds it.” said co-founder, Guy Villavaso. “We are proud to work with organizations like Heroes for Children that generously donate their time to families in need.”
Heroes for Children is a great nonprofit organization that provides financial and social assistance to families with a child battling cancer. Since 2005, Heroes for Children has helped alleviate families’ worries, giving them comfort and a brief respite from the everyday challenges of fighting cancer and care giving. Since its inception, more than $5.5 million has been given to 4,500 families in need.
