The Melting Pot Restaurants, Inc. to Host 5th Annual Golf Classic Nov. 3 to Benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital

TAMPA, FL - Aug 7th, 2014

TAMPA, Fla. – (Aug. 7, 2014) – The Melting Pot Restaurants, Inc., the premier fondue restaurant franchise headquartered in Tampa, Fla., as an affiliate of restaurant management company Front Burner Brands, will host its fifth annual Melting Pot Golf Classic on Monday, Nov. 3 at Carrollwood Country Club, located at 13903 Clubhouse Dr. in Tampa, to benefit kids battling cancer and other deadly diseases at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®.

The Melting Pot’s goal is to raise $100,000 to help ensure 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. If past fundraising success is a sign of future performance, The Melting Pot will achieve this goal – thanks to generous contributors and sponsors. Since the event was founded in 2010, donations have doubled every year.

The event begins with lunch provided by Front Burner Brands concept GrillSmith with additional food and drinks to be provided by Front Burner Brands concepts on the golf course. Several hole contests will offer golfers the chance to win prizes. A cocktail reception and seated gourmet dinner will follow the tournament. Silent and live auctions will feature prizes such as several beach getaway weekends and four Tampa Bay Buccaneers suite tickets. A special presentation by a St. Jude patient family will highlight the evening.

Sponsors include The Melting Pot Restaurants Inc., Revention, Bright House, Bank of America, Clear Channel Outdoor, Emmi Roth Kase, J. Thor Productions, Coca-Cola, Parks Lincoln, Parks Ford, Parks Fiat, CCM Printing, Burger 21 and GrillSmith, and more.

The registration deadline is Oct. 31. Space is limited. For sponsorship information and to register, visit or contact Dru Lundy at or (813) 425-6248.
