The partnership between Chili's Grill & Bar and St. Jude began locally in 2002. Subsequently, Chili's expanded this promotion and launched the national Create-A-Pepper campaign in 2004. In 2005, Chili's made a $50 million commitment to name the Chili's Care Center. In November 2007, the Chili's Care Center opened and became the first medical building on the St. Jude campus to bear a name of a corporate partner. As of February 2017, Chili's has raised more than $65 million and has completed their commitment to the Chili's Care Center as well as confirmed a new promise to St. Jude to raise $30 million over 6 years to enhance the St. Jude School Program by Chili's. Chili's is one of our largest corporate partners and to date has raised the most funds for St. Jude from a single partner campaign.
Chili's Grill & Bar signed on to be a Gold Level National Team for 2016.
