"We are Family” will be sponsoring its fourth annual Burgers for a Cause on Tuesday, May 21st, 2013 from 11 AM to 9 PM at Ted’s Steamed Cheeseburger, Meriden. A portion of all proceeds from the day’s sales will be donated to the American Cancer Society. Additional donations will be accepted during the day’s event.
“We are Family” is a Relay for Life team supporting the American Cancer Society. This year’s “Burgers for a Cause” will be held in special memory of Rick Garrison. Rick was a local hero, a firefighter and family man who lost his battle with cancer in February.
Mary Underwood of Cheshire, spokesperson for the “We are Family” Relay for Life team, spoke of Rick Garrison with fond memories. “Rick was courageous in his battle to live each and every day to the fullest. He enjoyed supporting ‘Burgers for a Cause’ with his family and friends each and every year and his spirit will be with us this year. He enjoyed coming to the event each year, bringing friends and family, to support ending this disease. Now, it our turn to support his family – and honor his memory – at this year’s fundraiser,” said Underwood.
