LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- A Louisville-based fast food giant is helping serve up hundreds of thousands of dollars for sick children.
Long John Silver's presented a nearly $322,000 check to the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. That includes Kosair Children's Hospital.
The money was raised through in-store promotions and activities. From 1995 to 2002, Long John Silver's has brought in more than $4 million for the Children's Miracle Hospital Network.
Mike Kern, the President and CEO of Long John Silver's said, "LJS was purchased by a new ownership group last year and one of the first decisions we made was for LJS to re-establish our partnership with CMN so that we could generate funds for local hospitals and create funds for positive opportunities for employees, franchisees and our brand."
Long John Silver's also set up a special First Friday of Lent Fish fry at Kosair Children's hospital to serve to patients and their families today.
