Buy-A-Tray Fundraiser at two PA Chick-fil-a restaurants
February 1, 2020 @ 6:00 am - February 15, 2020 @ 9:00 pm$8.95 – $13.85
After reading a Jan. 25 article in The Philadelphia Inquirer about a local family trying to raise millions to save their son with Sanfilippo Syndrome, two Chik-fil-a restaurants near them reached out and offered to host a two-week fundraiser to help fund the clinical trial that could save Connor.
A dollar from every 30-count chicken nugget or 10-count Chick-n-Minis tray order from Feb. 1-15 at the Ashbridge Square or Lionville Chick-fil-a locations will benefit Cure Sanfilippo Foundation, which is helping fund the first-ever clinical trial for Connor’s specific type of Sanfilippo (Type C).
The article was published digitally and in the Sunday, Jan. 26, print edition.
In a follow-up article on Jan. 30, the Inquirer reporter cheered the hundreds of readers who had donated more than $20,000 to the Fight for Connor in the days after the article appeared. And donations continue to stream in, accompanied by heart-felt and encouraging messages for Connor, his family, and the larger population of children with Sanfilippo Syndrome worldwide.
