TORONTO, July 26, 2022 /CNW/ – Wednesday, July 27th marks BGC Day at Mary Brown’s Chicken, a significant occasion for Canada’s premier fried chicken destination. With every Meal, Combo, and Feast sold in stores and on the MB App, Mary Brown’s will donate CAD 2.00 in support of the life-changing work of BGC Canada, (formerly known as Boys and Girls Clubs of Canada). Mary Brown’s guests are also encouraged to donate directly to BGC Canada through point-of-sale and donation coin boxes in-store.
BGC Canada has been the national charity partner for Mary Brown’s Chicken since early 2021. This is their second annual fundraising day for BGC. The brand is proud to support BGC’s mission of helping all children and youth reach their full potential, inspired by their slogan: Opportunity Changes Everything.
On Wednesday, Mary Brown’s President and COO, Hadi Chahin, will be joined by BGC Canada President, Owen Charters, at Mary Brown’s 114 Ellesmere Avenue location in Scarborough to personally thank guests for their support. Additionally, all Mary Brown’s corporate employees across Canada will visit a Mary Brown’s location on July 27th to personally show their appreciation. A limited-time return visit coupon offering two pieces of Signature Chicken & small Taters for CAD 4.99 plus taxes will be given to guests as an extra special thank you.
“We believe that helping children reach their full potential is an extremely worthwhile and meaningful cause,” says Hadi Chahin, President and COO, Mary Brown’s Chicken, “Through the day’s effort and our continued support, we hope to not only raise funds for BGC Canada, but also raise awareness about the amazing work they do for Canadian children coast to coast.”
BGC President, Owen Charters, adds, “This is our second year celebrating BGC Day with Mary Brown’s Chicken and we’re thankful for the continued support their team, franchisees, and guests have shown us. Campaigns like this allow our organization to fund programs that help remove barriers and create opportunities for kids and teens across Canada.”
Both sharing roots in Atlantic Canada, Mary Brown’s Chicken and BGC Canada have a longstanding history of philanthropy and community caring in their organizations.
Chahin concludes, “The success of BGC day is, of course, about the generosity of our guests, but it’s also about the hard work and commitment of our franchisees, who share our passion for their communities and for this cause.”
