D'Angelo Grilled Sandwiches President Rick Wolf presented a check worth $86,231 to the Jimmy Fund during the WEEI/NESN Jimmy Fund telethon today. From Monday, July 27 through Sunday, August 16, D'Angelo guests donated $1 to support The Jimmy Fund and The Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. In return, guests received coupon booklets filled with savings on D'Angelo Grilled Sandwiches' most popular menu items, Jimmy Fund information and a detachable "End of Season Red Sox Schedule".
Since its founding in 1948, The Jimmy Fund has raised millions of dollars through thousands of community efforts to advance Dana-Farber's lifesaving mission. The Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, with support from The Jimmy Fund, provides expert, compassionate care to children and adults and is home to groundbreaking cancer discoveries.
"Through the generosity of our guests and the constant dedication of our team members, we were able to exceed our expectations and raise more than $86,000 for the Jimmy Fund," said Rick Wolf, president and CEO of Papa Gino's, Inc., parent company of D'Angelo Grilled Sandwiches. "Our team members rallied behind this effort to raise funds for The Jimmy Fund, which will be used to provide vital services through The Dana-Farber Cancer Institute."
