November is Pancreatic Cancer Awareness month and for the third straight year seven local restaurants are stepping up to help fundraise for the BC Cancer Foundation.
The Ladner and Tsawwassen locations of McDonalds, Dairy Queen and Chopped Leaf, along with the Tsawwassen White Spot, will each be donating a percentage of total sales on their designated day to the foundation in support of pancreatic cancer research and care.
The initiative was launched in 2019 in honour of Ladner resident and Delta firefighter Thomas Haydon who lost his battle to Pancreatic Neuroendocrine cancer in 2018 at the age of 36.
Last year’s event raised more than $10,000 and there will be additional ways for customers to contribute this time around.
Starting this Friday, Nov. 12, a special edition fireman ice cream cake will be available at the Ladner and Tsawwassen Dairy Queens with 50 percent of each sale being donated to the foundation. As well, each location will be selling purple paper ribbons for $5 that will also go directly to the final total.
To support this terrific cause take note of the designated days for each of the participating restaurants:
Thursday, Nov. 18: Ladner and Tsawwassen McDonalds, 10 percent of all sales.
Friday, Nov. 19: Ladner and Tsawwassen Dairy Queen, 10 percent of all sales.
Saturday, Nov. 20: Tsawwassen White Spot, 10 percent of all sales, including take out.
Sunday, Nov. 21: Ladner and Tsawwassen Chopped Leaf, 10 percent of all sales.
