Each year, Jersey Mike’s, nationwide, holds a “month of giving” and donates to a local charity. Our own Steve Barry, owner of Jersey Mike’s in Mukilteo, Shoreline and Overlake accepted a challenge on behalf of himself and his Mukilteo crew: if they raised $10,000 for Seattle Children’s Hospital, they’d do something crazy to their hair. Steve would have to shave “$10,000” into the back of his head; Richard would have to shave his head completely; Brandon would have to dye his hair bubble gum pink; and Jessica would let the crew decide which color her hair would be.
Not only did the three restaurants raise over $10,000 over the month of March but nearly that same amount on Day of Giving, March 30, when 100% of the sales were earmarked for the hospital. In the Seattle area $104,677 was raised by 25 Jersey Mike’s sites (including Steve’s three). Those proceeds went to Children’s.
Thanks, Steve and Jersey Mike’s Crew. We are so proud of our Chamber members who step up and lead the way in our business community.
