AUBURN, MA — From July 1 through August 7, customers at participating Papa Gino’s and D’Angelo locations will be invited to make a contribution of $1 or more at the register to the Jimmy Fund, which supports adult and pediatric cancer care and research at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. As a thank you, customers will receive a sheet of coupons for popular menu items at D’Angelo, Papa Gino’s, and other retailers including: Water Country, Valvoline Instant Oil Change, Six Flags New England, Reebok, Polar Beverages, Golfsmith, Sully’s Brand, and EverybodyFights.
Participating restaurants and stores are located throughout New England. Local stores participating in Grand Slam Savings for a Great Cause include the Papa Gino’s located at 459 Southbridge Street and the D’Angelo restaurant located at 695 Southbridge Street in Aubutn, MA.
