East Side Mario’s is Raising Funds for Movember
East Side Mario’s is partnering with Movember, the global charity on a mission to change the face of men’s health. For every dine-in and takeout purchase made at East Side Mario’s for the month of November, they will donate $0.25 to Movember.
Additionally, East Side Mario’s guests will be able to make their own donation at the restaurant if they choose. In appreciation, they will receive a Movember moustache cutout where they can write a message and post it on the growing Movember wall of fame.
You also have the opportunity to win a $50 East Side Mario’s gift card each week in November by getting involved on social. All you have to do to enter is follow @EastSideMarios on Instagram, or like East Side Mario’s Facebook page, post a photo using the East Side Mario’s moustache filter on Facebook and/or Instagram and use the hashtag #ESMovember.

“Our values of celebrating family and fun while doing good makes us a perfect fit for a partnership with Movember Canada,” says Paul Pascal, COO, East Side Mario’s. “We are focused on bringing friends and family together in our restaurants, and opening the door to having important conversations about men’s health”.
This year, East Side Mario’s has pledged to raise a minimum of $50,000 for the organization. 9 days into the month, they’ve achieved $15,000 so far.
Movember has funded more than 1,250 men’s health projects around the world since 2003, 300 of which were based in Canada. Their focus is on mental health and suicide prevention as well as prostate and testicular cancer, and their programs fund research and support programs designed to help men live happier, healthier lives.
“We’re incredibly excited to be working with East Side Mario’s heading into our 16th annual Movember campaign,” says Todd Minerson, Movember Canada Country Director. “The dinner table is often a place where families and friends come together, where amazing memories are made. With East Side Mario’s support, we know there will be some important conversations about men’s health happening this month at locations all over the country.”
