The V Foundation for Cancer Research is joining forces with 25 Jersey Mike’s Subs restaurants throughout the Raleigh/Durham area for the 4th Annual March “Month of Giving” fundraising campaign. During the month of March, customers can make a donation to The V Foundation for Cancer Research at any area Jersey Mike’s restaurant. The campaign will culminate in the nationwide event, Jersey Mike’s “Day of Giving” on Wednesday, March 26, when 100% of the day’s sales will go to 96 different charities including hospitals, youth organizations, food banks and more.

On the March 26 Day of Giving, all Raleigh/Durham area Jersey Mike’s restaurants will donate 100 percent of the day’s sales to The V Foundation for Cancer Research.  For a list of participating restaurants in your area and for more information on our charity partners, please visit www.jerseymikes.com/mog. Everyone is invited to come in to a local Jersey Mike’s restaurant and enjoy a delicious sub meal.  

“Last year, the Raleigh/Durham Jersey Mike’s restaurants raised nearly $80,000 for The V Foundation for Cancer Research during the Month of Giving,” said Nick Valvano, President Emeritus of The V Foundation for Cancer Research.  “This is a tremendous partnership and we are grateful to this generous organization for embracing our mission of funding cancer research.”

Last year’s Month of Giving campaign raised $1.7 million for 86 different charities nationwide. Since 2010, Jersey Mike’s locations throughout the country have raised nearly $7.5 million for worthy local causes and distributed more than 600,000 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,” said Peter Cancro, Jersey Mike’s founder and CEO, who started the company when he was only 17 years old.  “This year we hope to raise more than $2 million to support these local causes so we can bring hope to all those involved with the charities and make a difference in people’s lives.”
