Once again, Hickman’s Family Farms will partner with some of the favorite breakfast restaurants around the Valley to celebrate PJs & Eggs. The sixth annual event will be held on “World Egg Day”: Friday, October 10, 2014. The “breakfast for dinner” will begin at 5:00 p.m. at participating locations to benefit Arizona’s Children Association (AzCA) foster care programs statewide.
Customers who have breakfast for dinner at each participating restaurant on October 10 are invited to wear their pajamas and asked to bring a new pair (any size for kids ages newborn to18) to be donated to children in the AzCA’s foster care programs. In return, each customer will receive a certificate for a free dozen Hickman’s eggs. Some participating restaurants will also donate a portion of the proceeds from the evening to AzCA.
The current list of participating restaurants includes: Café 25:35 (Buckeye); Chaffin’s Diner (Tucson); Chicken Noodle Café (Wickenburg); Kiss the Cook (Glendale); Millstone Café (Buckeye); OverEasy (Phoenix - Arcadia); Scramble (North Phoenix); Sue Ann’s Apple Pan (Prescott); and TJ’s Homestyle Restaurant (Avondale). Pajama collection will begin in September at participating locations and will continue through the night of the event. Donations received after October 10 will be forwarded to AzCA.
“The event is in its sixth year with continued support from many of the locations that have participated since the beginning,” says Sharman Hickman of Hickman’s Family Farms. “PJs & Eggs offers a unique opportunity to share in an event that is fun and extremely useful. It’s hands-on help for our local communities’ kids in foster care. Participants know that whatever donations they make go directly to local children in need. Our goal this year is to reach 6,000 total pairs of pajamas donated since the start of this event.”
AzCA’s adoption and foster care programs, offered throughout the state, are vital resources for matching children in need with safe and loving families. There are more than 14,000 children in Arizona’s foster care system ranging from in age from newborn to 18 years old.
