Locally-owned St. Louis Goodcents restaurants will donate 10 percent of sales to support the ADA
ST. LOUIS, Mo. – On Saturday, May 20 St. Louis-area Goodcents Deli Fresh Subs restaurants are donating 10 percent of sales to the American Diabetes Association (ADA) as part of a special ‘Goodcents Day for ADA’ event.
This event is part of a large fundraising effort for a Tour De Cure® cycling group called Frank’s Tanks, formed by St. Louis-area franchise owner Brian Gambino and his business partners. Brian’s son, Frank, was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes when he was just four years old in February 2016.
“Frank’s diagnosis changed our lives forever and opened our eyes to a whole new reality that more than 30 million people deal with on a daily basis,” said Brian Gambino, Goodcents Deli Fresh Subs franchise owner. “Though we are fortunate to have good healthcare and a great support system for Frank, we want to do all we can to support those in need going through the same thing.”
Frank has to be tested 10 times per day and requires insulin shots with every meal and snacks, as well as a slow acting nighttime insulin before bed. According to Gambino, the monthly cost for all of his test strips, insulin, and other supplies to manage his diabetes without insurance would be more than $1,100.
The Goodcents Deli Fresh Subs corporate office committed to match every dollar raised as part of the fundraising effort.
“Brian and his family are like family to us,” said Scott Ford, president of Goodcents Deli Fresh Subs. “The American Diabetes Association is a fantastic organization and we are proud to support them and all they are doing to help make a difference in their community and abroad.”
