Flancer’s Offers Assistance to Three Admirable Organizations through 15th Annual Charity Pizza eating contest!
Flancer’s to promote events raising funds & awareness for charities
(Gilbert, Ariz.) – Flancer’s Restaurant is no stranger to giving back to the community; in fact, this is the 15th year in a row they are doing their part to spread goodwill to those who need it most. Since startup, Flancer’s has helped raise and donate over $234,000 in cash donations to charities. In April, the restaurant will be contributing to the Sunshine Acres Home, Jewish Family and Children’s Service (Max Flancer Fund), and WarFighter Sports. Tragically last year, owner Jeff Flancer lost his beloved 15 year old son Max and will continue to build funds to help other teens and parents in need of support and resources.
There are two events the community can take part in April to rally around these causes. Visit either Flancer’s Gourmet Grub in Mesa or Gilbert to purchase raffle tickets for a chance at winning one of six prizes valued up to $1000. Raffle sales to start March 10th.
Another way to help is by attending the fun and light hearted Cigar and Craft Beer Event at Fox Cigar Bar in Gilbert, date in early April to be announced. 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 Flancer’s at (480) 926-9077.
Those with a hearty appetite and ability to enjoy doing something offbeat can give back to the community by signing up to compete in Flancer’s all-you-can-eat pizza contest on Sunday, April 12th. Registration begins at 10:15AM and the feasting ensues at 11AM. The first prize winner will receive a prize $250 cash prize, a large trophy and be crowned by the Reigning Miss Arizona. For $25 contestants will receive a limited addition t-shirt. Also it will include pizza and a drink to help wolf it down. Winner is whoever eats two 16” cheese pizzas first.
Jeff Flancer says, “In this wonderful world where so many magically and beautiful things happen, there is also desperation and hopelessness. If we can assist and make the lives of people improved through different ways of intervention, then this is where good triumphs over evil.”
