Sauce Pizza & Wine | Gives Back | September 25th 2018 | 11am-8pm | ALL Sauce Pizza & Wine locations | 15% of the proceeds benefits the Bee Positive team
Since its sale from Fox Restaurant Concepts to Scott Kilpatrick and Co. in 2015 Sauce Pizza & Wine has scaled their business from an Arizona start-up to now boasting numerous locations in Texas and New Mexico, in addition to their tremendous growth in Arizona.
As they have grown they have been sure to continue in their support of the communities where they work, live and play. Through a series of Sauce Gives Back events the restaurant chain is facilitating awareness and fundraising opportunities for causes that align with their values. Earlier this year they held a few of these philanthropic events to engage and entice the community for the betterment of society.
In honor of National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, they partnered up with local hospitals to spread the word about the outstanding quality care and education they provide. Phoenix Children’s Hospital in Phoenix, Diamond Children’s Medical Center in Tucson and UNM Children’s Hospital in Albuquerque. This event had 100% of all kids’ meals donated to these worthy causes.
Now today they are at it again supporting Bee Positive and Brandi Smith Hunt as this year’s Greater Phoenix Light the Night Memorial Hero. Brandi was diagnosed with ALL (Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia) a month after the Disney Tinkerbell ½ Marathon race in 2016.
No one knows how long she had the disease. By the time they caught it, it was progressed, and Brandi started chemotherapy treatment in two days. A biopsy showed that 90% of her bone marrow had been overtaken by the leukemia cells. After a long 2-year fight, Brandi lost her battle with ALL in May. Her motto during treatment was Bee Positive after she learned her blood type was B+.
In her honor, family and friends are remembering Brandi by participating in Light the Night with Team Bee Positive. https://pages.lightthenight.org/az/Phoenix18/BeePositive
