Dine Out and Stick a Fork in Cancer Proceeds Donated to the American Cancer Society on July 8
Mark your calendars to enjoy a meal out on the town all while supporting a good cause in the community. On Tuesday, July 8, the American Cancer Society and 56 restaurants in Charlotte, Collier, Lee and Hendry counties will come together to host the 5th Annual Stick a Fork in Cancer event. On this day, participating restaurants will donate 10 or 20-percent of sales to the American Cancer Society, helping fund cancer support programs, education efforts and research. Participating restaurants include:
In Lehigh Acres: Country Roads Café 1344 Homestead Road N., Lehigh Acres 239-303-0575
“We are so thrilled to have even more restaurants from the South Gulf Coast area participating in Stick a Fork in Cancer this year,” said Lisa Honig, distinguished events specialist for the American Cancer Society. “This fundraising event is one that is truly unique to our communities, and shows the dedication we all have to putting an end to cancer.”
Last year, 35 restaurants participated and raised more than $10,000 to support cancer patients and their family’s right here in Southwest Florida.
