The restaurant chain will kick off its Hometown Edge fundraising program at three Primantis Bros. locations – Morgantown, Clarksburg, and Wheeling – in May and June. The first event will be held at the Morgantown Primantis Bros. on Monday, May 22, from 5-6 p.m. Coach Huggins will be there to talk with fans and discuss his fund.
Coach Huggins will also attend the Clarksburg Primantis Bros. event on Tuesday, May 23, at 8 p.m. and the Wheeling Primantis Bros. event on Monday, June 12, at 4 p.m.
At each of these events, Coach Huggins will hand out Hometown Edge cards. Every time Primanti Bros. customers use a Hometown Edge card at any of the three participating restaurants in West Virginia, 10 percent of the purchase will be donated to the Norma Mae Huggins Cancer Research Endowment Fund. The program will run for one year.
The WVU volleyball team is participating in “Set for a Cause, Spike for a Cure” to benefit the Norma Mae Huggins Cancer Research Endowment Fund at the WVU Cancer Institute. The fundraiser seeks pledges and flat donations from fans throughout the 2017 season.
Future cancer research at West Virginia University will benefit from a $1 million estate gift from longtime WVU supporters Steve and Jamie Antoline.
