Friends and supporters of Amber Klein ate for the cure in May at Bertucci’s Italian Restaurant in Newark, DE. Bertucci’s is particularly known for its brick oven pizza. “We were really lucky that the restaurant, especially one of the waitresses, was so nice to us,” says Amber Klein, “It really helped make the event a success.”
Bertucci’s has locations in different parts of the country and all have a program to help non-profits raise money. Those interested in hosting a similar fundraiser need only reach out to their local manager and find a date on the restaurant’s calendar. Supporters bring in your event’s flyer and give it to their server. A percentage of their bill is then donated to your cause (the HPS Network, hint, hint). The more supporters that participate, the greater the percentage of their checks are donated.
