AVENTURA, Fla., April 1, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — Benihana Inc., the nation’s leading operator of Japanese theme and sushi restaurants, has officially kicked off the seventh annual Children Helping Children coloring contest as part of its Children’s Day activities.
From now until May 5, children ages 12 and younger who visit any Benihana location nationwide are encouraged to participate in the Children Helping Children coloring contest. Participants are asked to draw a picture depicting what the theme Children Helping Children means to them. For each entry form received, Benihana will donate $1 to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®.
Benihana will also name one winning entry through Instagram. To be eligible, an adult parent/guardian simply needs to take a photo of the child’s submission and upload it to Instagram now through May 5 with the hashtag #BENIKIDS and/or #CHILDRENSDAY.
On May 6, Benihana will select one child from each restaurant and one photo from Instagram to win a dinner for eight.
Additionally, 100 percent of the purchase price of all Benihana Kabuki Kids meals served on Children’s Day, May 5, will be donated to St. Jude.
