BJ’s Restaurant & Brewhouse Promotion Gives Birth to Charitable Donation to CHOC

Posted by Kelli on February 2, 2016 at 1:47pm 0 Comments

Expectant parents across America had until Labor Day to name their baby “Quinoa” for the chance to win $10,000 worth of food at BJ’s Restaurant & Brewhouse. When no baby Quinoa emerged, BJ’s was pleased to make a special delivery to Children’s Hospital of Orange County (CHOC) – a $10,000 donation in support of the hospital’s mission. The contribution comes in celebration of two new entrees that were welcomed onto BJ’s EnLIGHTened Menu this summer—the Roasted Salmon Quinoa Bowl and Roasted Chicken and Spinach Quinoa Bowl.

In honor of the two new EnLIGHTened quinoa, BJ’s challenged expectant parents to name their newborns “Quinoa” for the chance to win $10,000 in BJ’s gift cards. No one took BJ’s up on the offer, so they donated the $10,000 to CHOC, a pediatric health care system serving children and families throughout Southern California.

“Our Baby Quinoa event was a huge success, but unfortunately no consumers named their baby ‘Quinoa,’ and therefore no one…
