2019 marks 11th annual Pancake Tuesday for the Canadian breakfast chain; 79 franchised locations across Ontario will participate
OAKVILLE, ON, Feb. 21, 2019 /CNW/ - On Shrove Tuesday (March 5, 2019), enjoy fluffy buttermilk pancakes for only $1 at Sunset Grill franchised locations across Ontario, all in support of a good cause.
A $1 contribution will be made to the Canadian Cancer Society (CCS) from each Sunset Grill pancake sold to help fund important research, support services for patients and their families, among other important initiatives.
New this year, Juice Concepts, Sunset Grill's fresh juice supplier, will donate $1 from every glass of fresh orange juice sold at Sunset Grill franchised locations on the day of the event.
"It is important for us to work together as a community to contribute to the well-being of those around us," said Angelo Christou, founder and CEO of Sunset Grill Restaurants Ltd. "That's why we have been continually committed to supporting such a life-changing cause through Sunset Grill's annual Pancake Tuesday event."
Sunset Grill has donated more than $97,000 to CCS since the launch of the campaign in 2009. In 2018, more than $24,000 was donated to help fuel the work of the country's leading cancer charity.
"At the Canadian Cancer Society, our vision to create a world where no Canadian fears cancer is only achievable if we work collectively with people united by the same goals. We could not improve the cancer experience by helping people live longer and enhancing their quality of life, without the support of our corporate partners and donors. It's for these reasons that we are very thankful for the contributions of Sunset Grill," said Carly Schur, the charity's national director of corporate programs.
CP24 Breakfast will be covering the event day-of with live-to-air segments at the Sunset Grill located on the ground level of the CBC building in downtown Toronto.
