Marie Callender’s, Applebee’s and Logan’s, in conjunction with Team Tiff, will be hosting a “Let’s Meet and Eat” during September. The first three Tuesdays in September (Sept. 6, 13 and 20) will be “Tiff Tuesdays” and all involved are hoping everyone will show up for some delicious food while benefiting the Children’s Organ Transplant Association in honor of Tiffany Senter.
Born on June 7, 1993, Tiffany Senter was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis, and doctors at Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital in Palo Alto, California, recommended a life-saving double lung transplant. The Senter family needs an estimated $35,000 to pay their transplant-related expenses.
“Receiving a double lung transplant is everything that I could have ever asked for,” Tiffany writes on her Children’s Organ Transplant Association (COTA) blog. If I’ve learned anything living with this disease and experiencing all that I have, it’s that every day is precious, staying positive is the key and that not giving up is always worth it because good comes from pushing forward and being determined. I also have learned that anything’s possible if you just believe. I never thought I would have the chance to be able to actually feel healthy but I have no doubts that a double lung transplant is going to give me that chance.”
So help Tiffany get a second chance at life and come “Meet and Eat” at one of these great restaurants:
- Tuesday, Sept. 6th from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m.: Applebee’s at 1801 Hilltop Drive, Redding
- Tuesday, Sept. 13th from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m.: Logan’s at 1955 Hilltop Drive, Redding
- Tuesday, Sept. 20th from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m.: Marie Callender’s at 1987 Hilltop Drive, Redding
Those who participate in the “Meet and Eat” are asked to present a voucher for COTA (Tiffany) to receive 15% of your tab. The voucher can be downloaded and printed from this website.
