Tips for Tess week is fast approaching! We have a tradition here at Gannon’s Isle that one week out of the year our scoopers donate their tips to help fight Cystic Fibrosis. This week is very special to all of us at Gannon’s and we want you to be a part of it. This is the only week out of the year that we will ask you to tip well, but before we do we want to share some of the story behind Tips for Tess week with you.
Eleven years ago Tess Michaels was born with Cystic Fibrosis, a chronic disease that affects the lungs and digestive system. The Gannon’s are close friends with the Michaels’ and have helped raise money to fight Cystic Fibrosis each year. In honor of Tess they named the week of donations, Tips for Tess week!
This year we are having a kick off party for Tips for Tess week on June 16th and you are invited! We will have a fantastic bubble show, face painting, and caricatures by J.P. Crangle, the artist who created our beautiful murals! Come grab a tasty treat and help us fight Cystic Fibrosis. Any money you put in our tip jar will go to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, and Gannon’s will match the total amount donated, up to $1000.
If you would like to donate to Tips for Tess week please stop in and leave a donation in our tip cups. You can also donate to Team Tess in the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation’s Great Strides fundraiser by visiting the Team Tess website. To learn more about Cystic Fibrosis you can visit the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation website at www.cff.org.
Thank you very much for your support!
The Gannon’s Team
