“Pink Patches & Pasta” and “Puffs for Hope” events/promotions take place this October
Glendora, CA – Spaghetti Eddie’s Cucina Italian is again teaming up with local law enforcement and the City of Hope to help support breast cancer education, early detection and treatment.
Through two prominent events and a month-long promotion, Spaghetti Eddie’s plans to again help raise thousands for cancer research this October.
The Italian restaurant will host two Pink Patch Project fundraisers, which they have branded as “Pink Patches and Pasta.” Together with the Glendora Police Department, on Thursday, Oct. 4 from 5:30 – 8:30 p.m., Spaghetti Eddie’s will help raise awareness about the project and collect donations. Local Glendora officers will also be on site selling special Glendora PD pink patches and will also provide educational information about the Pink Patch Project, while collecting donations. Irwindale PD will follow with the same involvement on Thursday, Oct. 11, also from 5:30 – 8:30 p.m.
Spaghetti Eddie’s is excited to host both police forces. This is the first time the restaurant will work with both Glendora and Irwindale. Last year, Spaghetti Eddie’s hosted the Glendora PD, and the fundraiser was a success.
During the entire month of October, Spaghetti Eddie’s and its sister restaurant, Eddie’s Italian Eatery will donate $1 for every order of Garlic Puffs purchased at both restaurants. That includes the Original Garlic Puffs available at Spaghetti Eddie’s and Eddie’s Italian Eatery, and Pesto-Parmesan Puffs available at Eddie’s Italian Eatery. This is the third year both restaurants participate in this promotion which is referred to as “Puffs for Hope”
Over the past few years with “Puffs for Hope” and “Pink Patches and Pasta” the two restaurants have donated thousands to help with cancer research, early detection and treatment.
“We are proud to be working with both police departments to raise money and grow money about this initiative,” said Spaghetti Eddie’s general manager, Teri Bainbridge. “The response and feedback we got from the community during last year’s event was great and we anticipate even more for this year’s events.”
Law enforcement nationwide are taking part in the Pink Patch Project, selling pink and black patches from each agency, which proceeds go to breast cancer research.
Spaghetti Eddie’s has been a Glendora community staple for 33 years. The restaurant prides itself in having something for everyone from classic Italian specialties to hand-tossed pizzas to fresh Seafood entrees.
This isn’t the restaurant’s only involvement in raising money for the community. Every year, the restaurant hosts a Tip-A-Cop fundraiser for local Special Olympics, and an array of other fundraisers throughout the year helping local schools, and sports and recreational programs in the Glendora Community.
