Princeton, June 13, 2011 – Local businesses have been challenged by Tammy Lyons to take part in a friendly competition. The largest donation made to “Team Kathy” of the Susan G. Komen 3-Day Walk for the Cure, will have their logo prominently displayed on the team’s shirts that will be worn during the walk. They can either give a lump sum donation, or a percentage of their sales from Saturday, June 18 that will help team members to participate in the 60-mile walk, which will be held October 14-16 in Philadelphia.
Tammy recruited her trainer Charles Bruno to join the team in the 3-day walk this fall. “It amazes me that what began as high school friends wanting to do something to support a classmate has led to meeting so many wonderful people in Princeton who are willing to help” says Lyons. “I’m moved by how individuals and businesses have really stepped up for a good cause”
The response from the Princeton community has been good so far. Starbucks – Princeton, Mediterra, Iano’s Rosticceria, The Bent Spoon, Palm Place, Nassau Inn, Spruce, Conte’s Pizzeria, and the Princeton Shopping Center have all pledged to support the team. They’re hoping more businesses jump on the bandwagon.
Mediterra will donate a percentage of their lunchtime profits this coming Saturday to “Team Kathy”, and are hoping customers show up in big numbers to support the cause.
