(Englewood, New Jersey; July 23, 2018)–The Community Chest needs your help to raise some “dough” one last time this summer at the Meatballs and Martinis Special on Wednesday, August 15.  Join The Chest’s board of managers and volunteers in this fun event at Anthony’s Coal Fired Pizza, located at 10 Sterling Blvd. in Englewood, New Jersey.

            During Happy Hour from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., bring friends, make new ones, and network.  Enjoy meatballs free-of-charge and martinis for $7.00.  The proceeds help The Chest to meet the pressing issues of people in need in the area.  For further information about the event or to register, contact Dr. Shelly Wimpfheimer at 201-568-7474.

            Throughout the day, 20% of tracked dine-in lunch or dinner and carry out sales are donated to The Chest.  Patrons, groups and businesses are invited to participate by placing their take-out or dine-in orders and telling the server they are attending to support The Chest.  The restaurant opens from 11:30 a.m. to 10:00 p.m.

            “As we near the end of our fiscal year, the public can help us assist more people in need in the area.  With the public’s participation in The Community Chest’s last Meatballs and Martinis event, we can increase the funds raised from 90 percent to 100 percent.  We appreciate Anthony’s Coal Fired Pizza giving back to the community and providing this opportunity,” said Dr. Shelly Wimpfheimer, Executive Director, The Community Chest.
