On March 27, representatives from Farmer Boys restaurants presented a check for $32,157.71 to the Loma Linda University Children’s Hospital Foundation. For the past five years, guests of Farmer Boys have generously supported the Children’s Hospital by graciously participating in Farmer Boys’ annual fundraiser for the hospital. 

Through the purchase of calendars, cups, and other items, Farmer Boys guests have provided LLUCH with funds to purchase much needed equipment, including monitoring devices for young diabetic patients and specialized cribettes and phototherapy lights for the neonatal unit.  This year’s proceeds will go to purchasing a cardiac EKG monitor for the neonatal intensive care unit and will also sponsor LLUCH’s annual children’s day.

Founded in 1981, Farmer Boys® fastaurants have grown to become a Southern California icon. There are currently 50 Farmer Boys® fastaurants in five California counties, with several additional units coming soon.

Children’s Hospital is the sole pediatric hospital for more than 1.2 million children living in San Bernardino, Riverside, Inyo, and Mono counties. For more information please visit the Children’s Hospital website at <www.lluch.org>.
