Jonesboro Chili's brings in more $10,000 for St. Jude

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - More than $10,000 is being giving to St. Jude Research Hospital and it's all thanks to some kind and hungry people who ate at the Jonesboro Chili's location Monday.

It's the fifth year this location and the others around the nation are giving one whole day's profits to the research hospital. However $10,000 collected from food doesn't include all of the money raised over the last month trough personal donations, t-shirt and chili decorating sales.

Managers say $26,000 is the grand total when you add up all of the other items. If you want to make that total a little bit more grand they're still selling t-shirts and other fundraising items through the rest of Tuesday.
