Gregg’s Giving Cake sales raise $12,000 for Hasbro

Posted:

As a result of its annual Giving Cake Program, Gregg’s Restaurants and Pubs recently donated $12,000 to Hasbro Children’s Hospital.

For more than a decade, Gregg’s has been able to raise money for the hospital by donating a portion of the sales of its special four-layer chocolate peanut butter cake, The Giving Cake. This cake was originally created specifically for the cause by the restaurant’s master bakers.

For each slice sold, Gregg’s donates 25 cents to the hospital, and for each cake sold, it donates $2.

Since the Giving Cake Program began in 1997 as a community partnership with the hospital, Gregg’s Restaurants and Pubs have raised approximately $125,000.

“We owe this wonderful accomplishment to all of our loyal and dedicated customers,” said Bob Bacon, owner of Gregg’s Restaurants and Pubs. “It is with their support that our fundraiser for Hasbro Children’s Hospital continues to be a success, year after year.” •
