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.
