Thanks for participating in the 5th Annual “PJ’s & Eggs” –
A Breakfast for Dinner Event - Friday, October 11, 2013
To Benefit Arizona’s Children Association
Hickman’s Family Farms, Arizona’s only commercial egg farmer, asked breakfast restaurants around the state to open for “breakfast for dinner” on one special night to benefit Arizona’s Children Association’s (AzCA) statewide foster care programs.
The fifth annual Hickman’s Family Farms “PJ’s & Eggs” – A Breakfast for Dinner Event – took place on Friday, October 11, 2013 at participating restaurants from 5 p.m. – close (close time determined by individual restaurants). Restaurant customers and employees were encouraged to wear pajamas that night.
Customers having “breakfast for dinner” were asked to bring a pair of new pajamas to the restaurant to be donated to AzCA’s foster care children. In return, customers entered to win gift certificates from participating restaurants. They were also be given a “Free Dozen Eggs” certificate, courtesy of Hickman’s Eggs, to be redeemed at any grocery store where Hickman’s eggs are sold. Participating restaurants were supplied with eggs from Hickman’s to ease their food costs for the night.
Participating restaurants displayed a pajama collection container (provided by Hickman’s and AzCA) with signage in the restaurant,and distributed information regarding the event. Their employees also assisted by appearing on live television, and by supporting other media efforts.
Participating restaurants were invited to donate a portion of the proceeds from “PJ’s & Eggs” to AzCA foster care programs, which supports purchasing basic supplies to fulfill needs of the children in its statewide foster care program.
Volunteers from AzCA and/or members of the Hickman’s family and family of employees were present at participating restaurants during the night of the event to assist.
Previous years' events, held in participating restaurants in Metro Phoenix and throughout the state of Arizona, were extremely successful delivering customers to every location, generating media coverage and collecting donations for AzCA. We have far surpassed our five year goal of collecting 5,000 pairs of pajamas for Arizona kids in foster care. Donations of pajamas are gladly accepted all year long.
Donate new pajamas (any size)
to benefit Arizona’s Children
Association Foster Care Programs.
