Mercy employees to be “Helping Hands” at HuHot Mongolian Grill Benefit

 Mercy Medical Center’s Katz Cardiovascular Department is raising some cold cash with a hot fundraiser to support the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF). On February 10, from 5 to 9 p.m., the Mercy employee volunteers will become “Helping Hands” to cook up some fun and raise funds at HuHot Mongolian Grill, located at Lindale Mall.

Mercy volunteers will take their place behind HuHot’s grill to promote awareness and raise funds.  They will stir fry meals of fresh meat, seafood, noodles, vegetables and unique sauces.  Customer tips will go toward JDRF.  Other Mercy volunteers will assist HuHot’s dining room staff and raise additional funds through a raffle. Additionally, HuHot’s Helping Hands program donates 10 percent of the event sales to JDRF.

JDRF is dedicated to funding research to find a cure for Type 1 diabetes, a disease that affects primarily children.  Since its inception in 1970, JDRF has provided more than $1 billion for diabetes research worldwide, more than any other non-profit, non governmental agency in the world.  More than 85 percent of JDRF’s expenditures directly support research and education about research.
