Jersey Mike's Charleston Area Stores Donate $2,104 to Hollings Cancer Center
December 1, 2008
During the month of October, Jersey Mike’s stores in the Charleston area sold their #7 for a great cause. What’s a number seven you may ask? It’s Jersey Mike’s famous Turkey and Provolone Sub, served in authentic northeast style with lettuce, onions, tomatoes, red wine vinegar, olive oil blend and spices. For every #7 sold at Jersey Mike’s five local stores during October, Jersey Mike’s donated $1.00, resulting in their $2,104 donation to Hollings.
“Hollings Cancer Center is one of the nation’s leading cancer research hospitals,” said Jay Yates, Jersey Mike’s Area Director. “I applaud and thank our local stores for raising funds and awareness for such an important cause.”
