MIAMI, April 13 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ In Japan, Kodomo no Hi, or Children's Day, is celebrated in May to honor children's happiness. Bringing the celebration to the United States, Benihana will donate 100 percent of proceeds of all children's meals served on Tuesday, May 5 to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital(R), one of the world's premier pediatric cancer research centers.

A grand prize winner and second prize winner will be selected at each restaurant. The grand prize winners will receive dinner for eight, and second prize winners will receive dinner for four.
