East Side Mario’s is partnering with Movember Canada to raise funds and support the organization’s mission to change the face of men’s health.
With the shared value of community impact, East Side Mario’s is encouraging everyone to join them this month as the company pledges to donate at least $50,000 to Movember initiatives. For every dine-in and takeout purchase made throughout the month, the franchise will be donating 25 cents.
“Our values of celebrating family and fun while doing good makes us a perfect fit for a partnership with Movember Canada,” says Paul Pascal, COO, East Side Mario’s. “We are focused on bringing friends and family together in our restaurants and opening the door to having important conversations about men’s health.”
Movember Canada is a global charity dedicated to men’s health, funding more than 1250 men’s health projects around the world since 2003, with more than 300 of those in Canada. With a focus on mental health and suicide prevention, prostate cancer, and testicular cancer, Movember invests in research and support programs.
“We’re incredibly excited to be working with East Side Mario’s heading into our 16th annual Movember campaign,” says Todd Minerson, Movember Canada country director. “The dinner table is often a place where families and friends come together and where amazing memories are made. With the company’s support, we know there will be some important conversations about men’s health happening this month at locations all over the country.”
Customers will be able to join in on the action and make their own donations at the restaurant if they choose. In appreciation, they will receive a Movember mustache cutout where they can write a message and post it on the growing Movember “wall of fame.”
