We received this email from our friends at Franco’s Metro in Fort Lee:
We are taking part in the Susan G. Komen For a Cure Restaurant week event. It is a week long event where Franco’s Metro will be donating a portion of each check to the fight against breast cancer and cancer awareness. It is something that we are very passionate about, as Breast cancer has touched our friends & family in a number of ways. Obviously, we want to make the largest donation possible in our inaugural year, but in order to do that, we need support from friends like you to help fill our seats all week long.
Together we can find a cure.
The First Annual New Jersey Restaurants for the Cure™ will benefit the North Jersey Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure®, which will run from Monday, September 29th through Sunday, October 5th. The weeklong breast health awareness and fund raising event will benefit Breast Cancer support, research and development at participating restaurants. Participating restaurants will feature a selection of menu items that will represent a donation of $1 per item to the North Jersey Affiliate.
It’s great to see local businesses participating in events like this. I hope you all consider going to Franco’s Metro and support the Komen organization by doing so.
