CMNH Sponsor Spotlight
Tops Friendly Markets
A long-term supporter and advocate for Golisano Children's Hospital, Tops Friendly Markets continues to hold generous promotions that benefit our pediatric patients. Through its fundraising and volunteering, hosting and sponsoring of events, and a commitment to giving locally, Tops has raised more than $500,000. This year's free grocery giveaway and balloon promotions have only added to their success, raising more than $60,000 for the children's hospital.
In addition, the annual Monte Carlo night, organized by Tops employee Eric Czekanski and his co-worker, Cheryl Colbert, raised $12,500 this year. We look forward to next year's fundraiser on March 22, 2014!
On August 8, Dairy Queen in Henrietta participated in Miracle Treat Day, the chain's first fundraising effort of what we hope will be many more. The promotion, which donated $1 to Golisano Children's Hospital for every Blizzard treat purchased, raised $3,848.
Dairy Queen opened a new location in Greece in September and plans to expand into Webster in 2014. We are excited to partner with the growing franchise and appreciate their commitment to making miracles in our community.
This year, Brueggers and Children's Miracle Network Hospitals joined together to celebrate their 30th anniversary. In addition to encouraging customers to donate to Golisano Children's Hospital on that special day, area Brueggers also participated in other fundraisers this year, including Free Coffee Day and the annual Bottomless Mug campaign. These two promotions raised $2,223 for the children's hospital. You can buy a Bottomless Mug until Jan. 31, 2014 and receive free refills through Dec. 31, 2014!
We are proud to partner with Brueggers and look forward to celebrating many more years together!
