Town Square Restaurants Supporting Kids With Cancer in September

Town Square Restaurants Supporting Kids With Cancer in September

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.
