Mary Brown's Famous Chicken and Taters presented a cheque for $55,000 to The Childrens Wish Foundation on December 1, 2011.
“Thank you to all of the Mary Brown’s Franchise owners and their dedicated team members, media, special guests and above all customers for purchasing our Signature Big Mary Sandwiches, and for participating in the other in-store donation opportunities,” says Nigel Beattie, President and COO of Mary Brown’s. “We are truly grateful for the generosity and kind-heartedness that was shown by all Mary Brown’s customers. With the support of everyone, Mary Brown’s surpassed last year’s results, and truly set a precedent for the years to follow.”
People visiting Mary Brown’s also had the opportunity to purchase a paper cloud for two dollars, sign their name and hang their cloud throughout the store for everyone to see.
"Mary Brown’s is dedicated to helping children in need and is delighted to be supporting The Children’s Wish Foundation" says Greg Roberts, CEO of Mary Brown’s. "In our effort to strengthen our support of organizations that support children, we have recently announced The Mary Brown's Fund. One hundred percent of monies raised through The Mary Brown's Fund will be directed to organizations that are dedicated to enriching the lives of kids."
