From July 28 through September 7, customers at Burger King and Valvoline Instant Oil Change can help fight pediatric cancer by contributing $1 to the Jimmy Fund through the “Chance for Kids” program. With each $1 contribution customers receive a scratch card guaranteed to be a winner. Grand prizes include a new Reeds Ferry® Storage Shed, an all-inclusive trip from TNT Vacations, free airfare from American Airlines, theme park tickets, and a number of other prizes. Again, EVERY card is a winner; ( at a minimum a free burger at Burger King or a discount on your oil change at Valvoline.)
If you scratch a ticket and see “Reeds Ferry” you’ll win a $5,000 Victorian Cottage Shed from Reeds. We hope you’ll agree that a chance at winning a quality Reeds Ferry Shed while supporting the Jimmy Fund at the same time is a great $1 investment.
All proceeds from your $1 donation go directly to the Jimmy Fund to benefit pediatric cancer care and research at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. The scratch cards are available at Burger King restaurants in six New England states and throughout New York and New Jersey, and at participating Valvoline Instant Oil Change locations in Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Rhode Island.
Now in its 14th year, the Chance for Kids & Families program has raised more than $11.6 million to fund pediatric cancer research and care at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston. The innovative research benefits children diagnosed with cancer in not only in New England, but patients from around the world as well.
