Ninety Nine Restaurant & Pub announced today that over $565,000 was raised this year for the Jimmy Fund and Dana-Farber Cancer Institute during their annual fundraiser which took place at all 104 restaurants in New England and New York from July 9 – August 13, 2015. The Auburn, MA location had the 4th highest total in the region.
“Our relationship with the Jimmy Fund and Dana-Farber Cancer Institute has been going strong for almost a decade now, raising an astounding $2.4 million dollars to date. We continue to support and admire their dedication to all the lives that they touch in New England and New York,” said Ninety Nine Restaurant & Pub President, Charlie Noyes. “This annual fundraiser is something that all of our restaurants, team members and guests look forward to. We are proud of their commitment to this cause, which drive donations that are used to care for children and adults with cancer, while also helping to fund research for treatments and cures for the disease.”
Ninety Nine Restaurant & Pub’s team members and guests, the runners in the New Balance Falmouth Road Race and riders in the Pan Mass Challenge, helped raise funds for the Jimmy Fund and Dana-Farber Cancer Institute by demonstrating generosity in the following ways:
• Adding $1, $3 or $5 (or more) to the total guest’s check;
• Various in-restaurant events; and
• Supporting the 75 runners in the New Balance Falmouth Road Race and riders in the Pan Mass Challenge with team sponsorships + donations for Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.
This year $234,600 was raised from in-restaurant donations at the 104 Ninety Nine Restaurant & Pubs in New England and New York.
Additionally, funds were raised from the support and donations of in-restaurant events and from fundraising efforts for the Falmouth Road Race and the Pan Mass Challenge. Team Lanzoni raised $320,000 for the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and was the largest fundraising team for the organization. These amazing amounts helped reach a total of over $565,000.
“Our passion to serve is quite apparent across New England and New York as we have committed team members and loyal guests who are always looking for ways to make a difference. They never cease to amaze when it comes to donating to the Jimmy Fund and Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, and we sincerely thank all those who have helped support these two organizations throughout the years,” added Noyes.
