The restaurant chain will kick off its Hometown Edge fundraising program at three Primantis Bros. locations – Morgantown, Clarksburg, and Wheeling – in May and June. The first event will be held at the Morgantown Primantis Bros. on Monday, May 22, from 5-6 p.m. Coach Huggins will be there to talk with fans and discuss his fund.
Coach Huggins will also attend the Clarksburg Primantis Bros. event on Tuesday, May 23, at 8 p.m. and the Wheeling Primantis Bros. event on Monday, June 12, at 4 p.m.
At each of these events, Coach Huggins will hand out Hometown Edge cards. Every time Primanti Bros. customers use a Hometown Edge card at any of the three participating restaurants in West Virginia, 10 percent of the purchase will be donated to the Norma Mae Huggins Cancer Research Endowment Fund. The program will run for one year.
Bonnie’s Bus is a mobile mammography unit that travels across West Virginia, offering breast cancer screening in a comfortable, convenient environment. The Bus serves women who have private insurance, Medicaid, Medicare, as well as uninsured women who qualify for the West Virginia Breast and Cervical Cancer Screening Program. Grant funds and donations are available to pay for women without coverage, so that no woman age 40 or over is ever turned away.
Individuals and communities in West Virginia can submit a request for Bonnie’s Bus to come to their area to provide mammograms. There is no cost to organizations to host Bonnie’s Bus. The Bus runs on its own generator, and requires a hard, flat space at least 40 feet long with 13 feet of overhead clearance. Because it weighs 40,000 pounds, the parking area must have a solid surface, like concrete or pavement. Communities and organizations interested in hosting Bonnie’s Bus can call 304-293-2370 or 877-287-2272.
The West Virginia Breast and Cervical Cancer Screening Program (WVBCCSP) is a comprehensive public health program that helps uninsured or underinsured women gain access to breast and cervical cancer screening services. Screening and early detection reduces death rates, improves treatment options, and greatly increases survival.
