The inaugural campaign raised more than $600,000 for 66 charities nationwide.

This partnership, along with the community supporting it, allows us to provide skilled and compassionate care to today's patients while researching tomorrow's cures," said Michele Smith, Seattle Children's Foundation Trustee.

Customers can make a donation to the hospital at any area restaurant. They are invited to make a minimum $2 contribution to the cause in exchange for a free regular-sized sub from 11 a.m.-6 p.m. March 28.
