Pink’s Hot Dogs honors Betty White by donating to LA Zoo

LOS ANGELES — Pink’s Hot Dogs is honoring the late Betty White by donating 100% of the proceeds from her favorite menu item to the Los Angeles Zoo for the next week. 

“Betty White, We Will Love You Forever!!!” the iconic Hollywood hot dog stand announced in a tweet.

In honor of the beloved actress and comedian who passed away Friday, Pink’s said it “will donate 100% of the proceeds for 7 days for each #BettyWhite #NakedDog” purchased at the location on La Brea at Melrose. 

Advertised as “Just the Beef in the Bun,” the Naked Dog features no toppings and was said to be a favorite of White’s. 

White, whose on-screen career spanned seven decades, passed away on Friday just a few weeks shy of her 100th birthday.

In addition to her long-running career in television and film, White was a well-known animal advocate and pet enthusiast. She donated time to animal advocacy organizations, including the LA Zoo.

City Attorney Mike Feuer praised Pink’s for donating “proceeds from the sale of one of White’s favorite foods going to one of her favorite causes.” 

Pink’s announced the promotion on Sunday in a tweet that pictured the exterior of the stand decorated with a banner that read, “Betty White, we will love you forever!!!”
