If you ever had a sub, you know it’s like having a major salad with an assortment of meaty items in between a couple of hunks of bread. Jersey Mike’s Subs not only has both cold and hot subs, they’re practically giving them away. On Monday, March 28, the 14-Dallas-area Jersey Mike’s Subs are “giving customers a free regular sub in exchanged for a minimum $1 donation” with 100% of the proceeds going to Dallas’s Wipe Out Kids’ Cancer.
“We are so thankful for the support from Jersey Mike’s and the DFW community in 2010 that allowed us to provide funding for 4 critical research initiatives that provide hope to pediatric cancer patients,” said Evelyn Costolo, CEO for Wipe Out Kids’ Cancer. “We hope the DFW community will support Wipe Out Kids’ Cancer Day on March 28 in an even bigger way this year and support our vision of a day when all children are living cancer free.”
Suggestion: Don’t wait until the 28th to satisfy your sub cravings, though. The DFW Jersey Mike’s are adding to the WOKC coffers by donating 25 cents for each regular sub and 50 cents for each giant sub sold bought until March 28.
Last year’s efforts raised $50,000 for WOKC.
“Our goal is to really make Jersey Mike’s Wipe Out Kids’ Cancer Day on March 28 a great event for the communities we serve while raising as much money as possible for a great cause,” said Dalton Stewart, Jersey Mike’s franchisee and North Texas director. “The money we raise will help save children’s lives and we’re hoping to exceed the $50,000 raised last year.”
The biggest problem facing the MSC staff is choosing between being good and getting the turkey breast and provolone or diving into a club supreme. Ah, shoot! Might just try both of ’em, but on separate days.
