We Love Caring For Kids!

Since 1979, Eat'n Park guests and team members have united to do some serious fundraising for five weeks every November and December. That's right - it's time for Caring for Kids!  Through this campaign, we’ve raised nearly $10 million for our local children’s hospitals, but we’re not stopping now!

Our 37th Annual Caring for Kids campaign kicks off today and we’ve got lots of fun opportunities for you to help support us this year!

$2 Raffle Tickets – 2016 Ford Mustang

Our generous partner, Neighborhood Ford Store, has kindly donated a 2016 Ford Mustang to the campaign - so one lucky guest is going to be taking home a pretty sweet Christmas present!

Raffle tickets are available for just $2 each at all Eat'n Park locations. Just ask your server for one (or 10!) for your chance to win. 100% of the proceeds from the raffle go directly to the campaign.

For full details and raffle restrictions, click here.


Holiday Merchandise

10% of proceeds from all Holiday merchandise will go to our Caring for Kids campaign. You'll find Red and Blue Embossed Smiley Mugs at every Eat'n Park location. In addition, restaurants that normally carry apparel will be featuring Christmas Star long sleeve adult t-shirts!

Stop in to pick yours up today - we have limited quantities!


Restaurant Activities

Every year, our team members pour their hearts into this campaign. Many of them donate their time (and sometimes, their tips) to organizing special events at our restaurants.

You may be familiar with our Tips for Tots nights, in which our team members and local celebrities donate the evening's tips to the campaign. Events like these are fun for everyone, and of course, they benefit a great cause.

We'll be updating the schedule of events every week, so check back often to see what's happening at your local Eat'n Park!

Thanks in advance for supporting our campaign!

Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank Donation

During the beginning of August, we pledged to donate 50¢ of every Soup, Salad & Fruit Bar entrée sold to our local food banks. With your help, we were able to raise a total of $12,884 for food banks throughout the communities in which we serve, including over $7,000 to the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank!

A few weeks ago we had the opportunity to see the fruits of that donation, when some of our team members volunteered to package eight tons of apples that were bought with our donation! What an amazing day!
