Cheering Up the Kids

Lawry’s The Prime Rib helps to delight children at UCLA’s Mattel Children’s Hospital with dinners, pampering, and making their dreams come true.

Children from the Mattel Children's Hospital at UCLA meet players at the Beef Bowl before the 2011 Rose Bowl Game Christopher Robinson (center right), a patient at the Mattel Children's Hospital at UCLA, was a special guest at Lawry's Beef Bowl for the 2011 Rose Bowl Game. Christopher and his family (his brother, Nicholas, is at Christopher's right) had a great time meeting Wisconsin Badgers players including quarterback Scott Tolzien (at Christopher's left), who is now with the Chicago Bears.

FOR THE LAST SIX YEARS, Lawry’s The Prime Rib, Beverly Hills, with the full support of our company, has been giving the children at UCLA’s Mattel Children’s Hospital the gift of happy times.

The children, many of whom are terminally ill, come to the hospital from throughout the U.S. and the world to receive state of the art care. Our efforts are led by Beverly Hills general manager Todd Johnson, whose wife, Irene, is a pediatric chaplain at the hospital.

do all we can to boost the young patients’ morale

Todd recently arranged for one youngster, terminally ill with liver disease and unable to leave the hospital for more than two hours at a time, to be flown by helicopter to Disneyland.

We bring our food and service to the hospital two times a year to treat the almost 150 kids there to a barbecue and a holiday meal, invite children and their families celebrating milestones in their recovery to free dinners and lots of pampering in the restaurant, and, in short, do all we can to boost the young patients’ morale and help make their dreams come true.
