ST. LOUIS (KMOV) – The 23rd annual Hardee’s Rise and Shine for Heat on Friday has raised a record $900,000 so far!

The event raises money for Heat Up St. Louis by giving 100 percent of the proceeds from sausage biscuits or egg biscuit sandwiches to the organization. The biscuits cost $1 and are available during breakfast hours on February 10.

The money raised to date is a 29 percent increase from 2022. The fundraiser will end Monday afternoon, February 13.

Heat Up St. Louis offers financial assistance with heating bills. The nonprofit organization was founded in 2000 to help elderly individuals, low-income families and residents with disabilities in Missouri and Illinois with delinquent energy bills.
