This fall, The Jeff Ruby Foundation will host a golf tournament at Coldstream Country Club to raise money for our foundation. Proceeds will directly help vulnerable youth in all our restaurant communities. Stay tuned for more event details and how to get involved.

Our last fundraising event took place in 2018. Thank you to the hundreds of The Jeff Ruby Foundation friends and family who attended – all in support of helping at-risk kids find better homes and making connections to the right people and services.

Fighting Chance Family Dinners

As the leader in the hospitality industry, we understand the power of bringing people together over a meal better than anyone. Inspired by our purpose to give a fighting chance to those who have none, The Jeff Ruby Foundation came up with the idea to host Fighting Chance Family Dinners – a dinner experience where we celebrate the bonds of foster, adoptive, and kinship families alongside our incredible partners at The Coalition of Care.

Families are chauffeured to the restaurant in a Jeff Ruby Culinary Entertainment Sprinter or Tour Bus. The evening kicks off with the fanciest soda bar a kid could imagine—complete with cream soda, a variety of fruit, candy toppings, and sauces. The sodas are enjoyed through fun neon straws as they indulge in a meal fit for royalty. We take pride in treating these families to an unforgettable experience.

Each dinner also includes a personal message from Jeff Ruby. More than just a warm welcome, these encouraging words help remind impressionable kids never to give, up no matter what challenges they’re faced with.
