(Mesa, Ariz.) – Jeff Flancer is no stranger to giving back to the community; in fact, this is the 14th year in a row he is doing his part to spread goodwill to those who need it most. In April, the restaurateur will be contributing to the Sunshine Acres Home, Jewish Family and Children’s Service, and WarFighter Sports.
There are various events the community can take part in throughout the month of April to rally around these causes. One of the easiest ways to donate to the aforementioned foundations is by visiting either Flancer’s Incredible Sandwiches & Pizzeria in Mesa or Gilbert to purchase raffle tickets for a chance at winning one of six prizes valued up to $1000. The raffle tickets can also be purchased online at www.flancers.com.
Another way to help is by attending the Cigar and Craft Beer Event at Fox Cigar Bar in Gilbert at 6:30PM on April 3rd. Food will be provided by Flancer’s, and there will be plenty of Perdomo cigars to enjoy, plus cold craft beers from Four Peaks to drink. Everything is included for only $30. To register for the event, call (480) 917-3117.
The following week, risk-takers can press their luck at a Charity Poker Tournament on Thursday April 10th. Registration and refreshments begin at 6PM and the chips hit the table at 7PM. The poker tournament will be held at Temple Emmanuel of Tempe; a $50 buy-in gets you in on the action.
Finally, those with a hearty appetite can give back to the community by signing up to compete in Flancer’s all-you-can-eat pizza contest on Sunday, April 27th. Registration begins at 10:15AM and the feasting ensues at 11AM. The first prize winner will receive prizes valued over $500. For $25 contestants will receive a t-shirt and all the pizza they can possibly eat.
Jeff Flancer says, “Too often, we take all the trappings of our lives for granted and settle back into our comfortable surroundings, looking away or ignoring those in need. This is something I cannot do and that is why we are engaging our patrons and the public in taking a moment to really think of those less fortunate than us.”
