Lincoln restaurants join campaign to support Pediatric Cancer

Some restaurants in the Haymarket are taking part in a special campaign starting September 3rd and portions of the proceeds raised will go towards Pediatric Cancer Awareness.

The campaign is called “Eat Drink Cure.” The co-owners of LeadBelly came up with the idea about 3 years ago.

They say they wanted to make a big impact in the community and ended up partnering up with three local childhood cancer charities. Representatives from Pediatric Cancer Network, Sammy’s Superheroes and Camp CoHolo were at the kickoff to this year’s campaign.

“September is National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month and we thought lets go ahead and do something big so this our third year and we decided to add a few restaurants to the mix,” Co-owner of LeadBelly and Toast, Tony Young said.

Aside from LeadBelly, the other restaurants involved include Toast, Gate 25, Jack’s Bar and Grill and Blue Sushi Sake Grill.

The campaign runs the entire month of September and this year’s goal is to raise $50,000.
