Triangle Jersey Mike’s Subs Locations Raise $70,000 for Cancer Research through The V Foundation

The V Foundation for Cancer Research, one of the nation’s leading cancer research funding organizations, and Triangle area Jersey Mike’s Subs are proud to announce that this year’s “Month of Giving” campaign raised $70,000 for cancer research.  Throughout March, 25 Triangle store locations offered customers the opportunity to donate to The V Foundation with their purchase.  The “Month of Giving” culminated on March 26, 2014, this year’s designated “Day of Giving,” during which Jersey Mike’s donated 100% of their proceeds directly to The V Foundation.

“We are beyond proud to be the beneficiary of Jersey Mike’s generosity,” said Susan Braun, CEO of The V Foundation. “They put themselves into this campaign at all levels of the organization, and with that made a great contribution to cancer research.”

Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its fresh sliced and fresh grilled East Coast-style subs, raised $2.1 million for more than 100 different charities nationwide during this year’s “Month of Giving.”  The V Foundation was selected as the Raleigh-Durham area “Month of Giving” charity for the second consecutive year.  With the addition of this year’s total, the Triangle area Jersey Mike’s locations have raised nearly $150,000 for cancer research.  Since 2010, including proceeds from this year’s “Month of Giving” campaign, Jersey Mike’s locations throughout the country have raised more than $9 million for charities. 

“We are so happy to have partnered with The V Foundation for our ‘Month of Giving’ again this year,” said Al Hardie, owner and operator of four Jersey Mike’s Cary locations and president of the Triangle area Jersey Mike’s co-op.  “Jersey Mike’s mission has always been to give to the community and make a difference, which is why it is so important to us that The V Foundation awards 100% of all donations to cancer research.  I would like to thank all of our customers who stopped by this March and contributed to this cause, as we continue to make a difference in the fight against cancer.”
