Saturday, August 18, 2012 • 8:09am
TO HONOR THE PARK RIDGE FIRE DEPARTMENT, WINNERS OF THE FAIRWAY FIREFIGHTERS FOOD FACE OFF, FAIRWAY MARKET WILL HOST A SHOPPING NIGHT ON WEDNESDAY, AUGUST, 22, 2012 AT THE PARAMUS STORE, AND WILL DONATE A PORTION OF PROCEEDS TO THE MARY THERESE ROSE FUND.
In honor of the Park Ridge Fire Department’s dedication, bravery, and volunteerism—and for placing first in Fairway’s Firefighter Food Face-Off in June, Fairway Market is hosting a Shopping Night on Wednesday, August 22, 2012 from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m., at the Paramus store (Fashion Center Mall Route 17) with 25% of all sales going to Mary Therese Rose Fund, an organization that provides children with disabilities the medical provisions and aid that their insurance may not cover. With proper donations, these disabled children are allowed to lead a normal, happy childhood despite their limitations.
The Park Ridge Fire Department beat out Ridgewood Fire Department and West Paterson Fire Department in the second annual Fairway Firefighters Food Face-Off. The winning team won a $500 gift card to shop at Fairway, plus they were able to select the good cause that will receive the 25% of proceeds from the Shopping Night. Mark Eisen, a member of the winning BBQ team, said the Park Ridge Fire Department is delighted to assist such deserving youngsters with a helpful donation.
Fairway Market has a longstanding commitment to firefighters, exemplified after the 9/11 tragedy, when Fairway adopted local firehouses and supplied food for them throughout the search and clean-up process. In addition to the Firefighter Food Face-Off events, firefighters receive a shopping discount at Fairway’s eleven locations.
To participate in the Shopping Night, Fairway customers need to register at an in-store table where they’ll get a form that they’ll present to the cashier when they’re checking out.
