Denny’s across the US help raise funds for Cookies for Kids’ Cancer this July

Since 2011, select Denny’s in Arizona and New York have held an annual month-long campaign to raise funds for Cookies for Kids’ Cancer. This year we are pleased to welcome Denny’s stores back! Throughout the month of July, nearly 50 stores are joining the cause and hosting events to help children battling cancer.

How it Works:

In exchange for a donation of their choice, customers can write their name or personal message on paper cookie. The “cookie” will then be added to a collection displayed throughout the restaurant. Every dollar raised will go to research for childhood cancer, the number one disease killer of children in the U.S.

To date, the Arizona and New York Denny’s have raised half of a million dollars for Cookies for Kids’ Cancer. These funds are currently at work as a part of five research grants looking for new and less toxic treatments for pediatric cancer. Help us grant another $100,000 this July by stopping by a participating Denny’s near you. If everyone gives a little, it will add up to a lot and help make a difference for children fighting cancer.

Denny’s Inspires Others to Be Good Cookies

Filed under: corporate fundraising — Tags: — The Good Cookies @ 7:53 am October 12, 2012

80 Denny’s Restaurants in upstate New York and Arizona are fighting pediatric cancer. Glenn and Tina Beattie from Top Line Restaurants, Inc. were inspired to raise money for Cookies for Kids’ Cancer because of the Witt Family. In the following guest blog post, Glenn and Tina talk further about their inspiration for supporting Cookies for Kids’ Cancer. For a complete list of participating Denny’s, follow the link.


Our company is proud to be a longtime supporter of Cookies for Kids’ Cancer. We were deeply touched by Liam’s short but significant life and wanted to do what we could to help the fight against pediatric cancer. Little did we know how enthusiastically our customers would respond.

In May of 2011, our 28 Denny’s in Western and Central New York held month-long fundraisers for Cookies for Kids’ Cancer. For each donation made, paper “cookies” were signed and hung on the walls of the diners. By the end of the month, tens of thousands of cookies lined every wall, window and door frame of our restaurants!

Thanks to our guests we raised $75,000 in just one month!! – a sum that through Cookies for Kids’ Cancer will help fund lifesaving research and treatments.

Our passion spread within the Denny’s community and this year, we have an additional 60 locations participating in our fundraiser in both New York and Arizona. With the additional restaurants and guests involved we are excited to significantly increase our financial impact.

As business owners, we are honored to partner with an amazing organization like Cookies for Kids’ Cancer and the spirit in which they are fighting pediatric cancer. As parents, we are inspired by Gretchen and Larry, and as neighbors, we are humbled by the overwhelming support of our guests who have also been touched by this cause.

One of our guests, the parent of a child with pediatric cancer, sent a letter that said coming into our restaurant with her child during our Cookies fundraiser made them both feel like they weren’t alone in the fight. And they are not. We look forward to continuing to do our part to uphold Liam’s legacy and make a difference in the lives of these brave young children.

Denny’s of Central and Western New York partners with Cookies for Kids’ Cancer in May

Filed under: corporate fundraising — Tags: — The Good Cookies @ 11:49 am May 5, 2011

Buffalo, Rochester, Syracuse, NY (date) – 31 Denny’s restaurants in Central and Western New York will join the fight against pediatric cancer throughout the month of May by teaming up with Cookies for Kids’ Cancer, a national non-profit organization committed to funding new treatments for pediatric cancer, the leading cause of death by disease for children in the US.
The event will take place from May 5th through June 1st at Buffalo, Rochester and Syracuse area Denny’s. Customers at participating Denny’s restaurants will be encouraged to make a donation to Cookies for Kids’ Cancer and in exchange, each customer’s name will be placed on the Denny’s “Wall of Good Cookies”.

“We are excited to be working with Cookies for Kids’ Cancer on such a meaningful and important mission. Less than 4% of the National Cancer Institute’s multi-billion dollar budget goes to all types of pediatric cancer even though pediatric cancer is the number one disease killer of children in the US,” says Glenn Beattie, a franchisee who operates the 31 Denny’s restaurants in Western and Central New York that will be participating in this event. “Denny’s hopes that by introducing our customers to this cause, we can help Cookies for Kids’ Cancer make a difference and raise much needed funds.”

“The support of individuals and businesses is vitally important to the fight against childhood cancer. Basically, it’s up to us to make up the difference from the lack of funding that is directed at childhood cancer. Without businesses like Denny’s who are willing to take a stand for children, who are our future, fighting this relentless disease is nearly impossible. We salute this group of Denny’s for caring enough to want to get involved and are grateful for their support,” commented Gretchen Witt, Founder of Cookies for Kids’ Cancer.

About Cookies for Kids’ Cancer
Cookies for Kids’ Cancer was founded by parents inspired by their son’s fight against cancer. Today pediatric cancer remains the number one disease killer of children in the United States, due in large part to a lack of funding for research into new and improved therapies. Through the concept of local bake sales and online cookie sales, Cookies for Kids’ Cancer inspires individuals, organizations, and businesses to join in the fight against pediatric cancer by raising the funds and awareness necessary to change the face of pediatric cancer and provide more families with the hope they deserve. Cookies for Kids’ Cancer grants funds raised to leading pediatric cancer research facilities including Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, Texas Children’s Cancer Center and Dana Farber Cancer Center.

The organization is a recognized 501(c)3 non-profit. Donations are tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law.
