On Wednesday March 28: Eat A Sub, Help Starlight Children's Foundation

Starlight Children’s Foundation is joining forces with four Jersey Mike’s Subs restaurants in Queensland for a “Day of Giving” on March 28. On that Wednesday, Jersey Mike’s locations in Mermaid Waters, Benowa, Calamvale and Browns Plains will give 100 percent of the day’s sales – not just profit – to the Starlight Children’s Foundation.

Along with the Gold Coast Jersey Mike’s restaurants on Day of Giving, Jersey Mike’s owners and operators throughout the U.S. and Canada will donate their resources — and every single dollar that comes in — to more than 170 different charities including hospitals, youth organizations, food banks and more.

“I would like to extend a personal invitation to you and your family to visit Jersey Mike’s Subs on Day of Giving when 100 percent of sales – every penny – will help support neighborhood needs,” said Peter Cancro, Jersey Mike’s founder and CEO, who started the company when he was only 17 years old.

Last year’s Month of Giving campaign in March, which included generous customer donations throughout the month, raised more than $5.5 million for local charities in the U.S. An astounding $4.6 million of that amount was raised on Day of Giving alone. Since 2010, Jersey Mike’s locations throughout the U.S. have raised more than $28 million for worthy local charities and distributed more than 2 million free sub sandwiches to help numerous causes.
