As you may know, The Fresh Market has proudly partnered with the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation yearly, to promote awareness of juvenile diabetes and to raise funds that go directly to our local JDRF chapter. Last year, we raised $440,000. This year, in our 19th annual fundraiser, we are looking to surpass $450,000 company wide.
Throughout the next three weeks, from August 23rd through September 8th, 100% of the money raised by your local Fresh Market #42 in Mobile, will go directly to the JDRF. These proceeds are donated by customers at the store level, through silent auctions, giveaways, a dunk tank manned by TFM employees, and our sidewalk hotdog, hamburger, ice cream float, and sundae sale, the dates as follows:
1st Silent Auction: Friday, August 23rd through Thursday, August 29th
2nd Silent Auction: Friday, August 30th through Thursday, September 5th
Sidewalk Sale (featuring hotdogs, hamburgers, ice cream, and floats for a $2-$5 donation): September 6th through 8th
Dunk Tank: August 30th through September 1st, and September 6th through 8th
Funds collection in store: August 23rd through September 8th
All auction and giveaway prizes were donated by The Fresh Market, or our generous neighbors at Omni Fitness, Edwin Watts Golf, Club Sun Tanning, Bronstein's Fine Furniture, United Johnson Brothers, Gulf Distributing of Mobile, and International Wine.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact myself, Sarah Covin, or any members of The Fresh Market management team at (251) 344-8026, or visit the store at 3940 Airport Blvd.
