WATCH: Jersey Mike’s donates $10,000 to Hugs for Brady live on air
During Dennis and Judi's live broadcast today, a very special moment happened live on the air.
Jersey Mike's has dubbed March as "The Month of Giving," where the sub chain is joining forces with more than 180 local charities for the company’s 6th annual fundraising campaign. Last year’s Month of Giving raised more than $3 million for more than 150 different charities nationwide.
During the month of March, all patrons are invited to come into their local Jersey Mike’s and make a donation to that location’s designated charity partner. Charities include hospitals, youth organizations, food banks and more. The campaign culminates on March 30, when 100% of the proceeds that day goes to the local partner charity.
During today's show, the local partner charity was the Hugs for Brady Foundation.The Hugs for Brady Foundation was established to help children battling cancer and assist in research to ultimately find a cure for pediatric cancer. Sherrie Wells, the founder of Hugs for Brady, was on hand for today's broadcast as well.
Jersey Mike's founder Pete Cancro joined Dennis and Judi on air to announce that the restaurant chain was donating $10,000 to Hugs for Brady. The expression on Sherrie Wells was of complete shock and joy. There was not a dry eye in the house, including Dennis and Judi after watching Wells' reaction to receiving the news.
