The V Foundation for Cancer Research is joining forces with Jersey Mike’s Subs restaurants throughout the Triangle area for the 3rd Annual March “Month of Giving” fundraising campaign to help in the fight against cancer. The campaign will culminate in the nationwide event, Jersey Mike’s “Day of Giving” on Wednesday, March 27.
During the month of March, customers can make a donation to The V Foundation at any area Jersey Mike’s restaurant. Then on March 27, a special nationwide celebration, “Day of Giving,” will take place at all Jersey Mike’s locations to benefit 86 different charities including hospitals, youth organizations, food banks and more.
On that day, Triangle residents are invited to come in to a local Jersey Mike’s restaurant and enjoy a delicious sub meal. All area Jersey Mike’s restaurants will donate 100 percent of the day’s sales to The V Foundation.
Local Jersey Mike’s restaurants participating include: Durham, Chapel Hill, Apex, Cary, Raleigh, Wake Forest, Fuquay-Varina and Garner.
The stores in Apex are located at Lake Pine Plaza, 922 Highway 64 and Peak Plaza, 1761 Highway 55.
“The V Foundation is so grateful to Jersey Mike’s for supporting our work to end cancer by funding cutting-edge research,” said Susan Braun, CEO of The V Foundation. “Each and every customer who buys a sandwich is playing a part in helping us find answers that will save lives here in the Triangle area and around the country. Thank you!”
Last year’s Month of Giving campaign raised nearly $858,000 for 74 different charities nationwide. Since 2010, Jersey Mike’s locations throughout the country have raised more than $5 million for worthy local charities and distributed more than 500,000 free sub sandwiches to help numerous causes.
“I would like to extend a personal invitation to come in and enjoy a Jersey Mike’s sub during our Month of Giving in support of one of your local charities,” said Peter Cancro, Jersey Mike’s founder and CEO, who started the company when he was only 17 years old. “The opportunities to give are all around us so we hope this March, you will join us to make a difference in someone’s life.”
