Port of Subs presented the Nevada Childhood Cancer Foundation’s (NVCCF) Camp Cartwheel Summer Camp with a $5,000 donation. Camp Cartwheel at Torino Ranch provides a 24-hour medically supervised outdoor and overnight camp experience for children diagnosed with cancer or other life-threatening illnesses. The three-day camp is designed to help critically ill children and their siblings overcome the physical, mental and emotional obstacles posed by childhood disease.
Port of Subs partnered with Lotus Broadcasting radio stations KXNT and KOMP to promote awareness and raise funds for Camp Cartwheel by having each station’s morning show hosts choose their favorite sandwiches; Port of Subs customers voted for their favorite jocks by purchasing designated sandwiches. A portion of all sandwich sales was designated for the donation to NVCCF’s Camp Cartwheel.
“The radio promotion was a lot of fun and big thanks goes out to KXNT’s Foxx & Mackenzie and KOMP’s B.S. in the Morning crews, but the clear winner was Camp Cartwheel.” said Michael Adams, regional marketing consultant for Port of Subs. “Port of Subs Neighborhood Sandwich Shops are committed to our communities and Camp Cartwheel is such a magical place for these kids who face daily challenges that most of us can’t even imagine.”
In addition to the $5,000 donation, Port of Subs provided sandwiches and fun for campers during both camp weekends.
“We’re proud to have made the donation, but being there to serve lunch, play with the kids, and be a part of their experience was something special,” said Bryan Martin, president of the Port of Subs Las Vegas Co-op.
“We’re so thankful for Port of Subs’ very generous donation,” said Jeff Gordon, Nevada Childhood Cancer Foundation CEO. “Thanks goes out to the Port of Subs Las Vegas owners and their teams for the delicious food and for everything they provided to this year’s campers.”
Port of Subs’ partnership with NVCCF’s Camp Cartwheel began in 2016 and will continue into the 2020 summer season. For more information on Camp Cartwheel or to make a donation, visit https://nvccf.org/camp-cartwheel/.
