Upstate South Carolina Fuddruckers Owners Give Back to Childhood Cancer in September — “In the Business of Building Burgers and Hope”

Written on September 16, 2022

Five Upstate South Carolina Fuddruckers’ Restaurants, under the leadership of owners, Allen and Lee Ann Johnston, are teaming up with local organizations to give back to children across the Upstate in September as a part of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month.

“We are so pleased to be involved with these two incredible organizations who do so much for children battling cancer. Being able to give back is so rewarding for our entire Fuddruckers’ team,” said Lee Ann Johnston. “While we’re in the business of building burgers, we’re also in the business of building hope, especially for these very special children battling cancer.”

The two partnerships include a Give-Back Day at all five Fuddruckers’ upstate locations (Spartanburg, Greenville, Anderson, Greer, and Duncan) all day on Wednesday, September 14. You can eat at the nearest Fuddruckers and 15% of your meal will be donated to Children’s Cancer Partners of the Carolinas.

CCP helps children diagnosed with cancer and their families across the Carolinas by providing funds for travel, food, lodging and other support. Last year, CCP reimbursed 1,720,165 auto miles and funded 838 hotel stays as families traveled to 11 states outside of the Carolinas for life saving pediatric cancer treatment. This year, it expects to assist an estimated 8,000 children, caregivers, and siblings.

The second partnership is with Roc Solid Foundation. Roc Solid provides custom backyard playsets to kids fighting cancer. The Fuddruckers’ team will be participating in a play-set build on September 15 to help a local Upstate child fighting cancer.

“We are so grateful for organizations like Fuddruckers and leaders like Lee Ann and Allen Johnston, who help make hope possible for the children of the Carolinas battling cancer,” said Laura Allen, executive director of Children’s Cancer Partners. “It takes a community to support these children on their journey, and we are so thankful for our local Fuddruckers for partnering with local organizations to give them the support they need.”
