MIAMI, April 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Benihana Inc., the nation's leading operator of Japanese theme and sushi restaurants, has officially kicked off the annual "Children Helping Children" coloring contest as part of its annual Children's Day programming.

From now until May 5, children visiting any Benihana location nationwide are encouraged to participate by drawing a picture to depict what the theme of "Children Helping Children" means to them. For each entry form collected, Benihana will donate $1 to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital® one of the world's premier centers for the research and treatment of pediatric cancer and other deadly childhood diseases. One winning entry will be selected from each restaurant to receive dinner for eight people. In addition, 100 percent of the purchase price for all of the Benihana Kabuki Kids meals served on Children's Day, May 5, will be donated to St. Jude.

"It is our pleasure to once again host the 'Children Helping Children' program to benefit St. Jude," said Richard Stockinger, president and chief executive officer of Benihana.
