Emmy-award winning actress and St. Jude celebrity ambassador, SOFIA VERGARA will once again join forces with Buca di Beppo®, the authentic, family-style Italian restaurant, for the second installment of Meatballs 4 Niños, a charitable campaign that supports St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital ® Meatballs 4 Niños launched nationwide Sept. 26, 2016.  Sharing a common mission, Vergara and Buca are dedicated to making an impact, boosting awareness and raising funds to support St. Jude. Drawing upon its commitment to the family experience, Buca di Beppo will donate $1 to St. Jude for every lunch and dinner meatball meal purchased.

 As a St. Jude celebrity ambassador, Ms. Vergara is passionate about health and wellness for children and families. Because of supporters like Buca di Beppo, families never receive a bill from St. Jude for  treatment, travel, housing or food because all a family should worry  about is helping their child live.  “We’re honored to be partnering again with Sofia to raise money for such an important organization,” said Robert Earl,chairman and founder of Planet Hollywood International. “St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital does everything possible to save the lives of children fighting cancer, and they freely share their research  breakthroughs with other doctors around the world, which helps save kids in communities everywhere. Every donation matters, so why not help raise money for pioneering research and treatments for kids with cancer and other life-threatening diseases while enjoying a meal.” http://www.bucadibeppo.com/reservations
