Primanti Bros. partners with Coach Huggins to benefit cancer patients

Primanti Bros. is partnering with WVU Men’s Basketball Coach Bob Huggins for a fundraising event for the WVU Cancer Institute’s Norma Mae Huggins Cancer Research Endowment Fund.

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.

Thought about joining Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR)?

Any woman 18 years or older who can prove lineal, bloodline descent from an ancestor who aided in achieving American independence is eligible to join the DAR. She must provide documentation for each statement of birth, marriage and death, as well as of the Revolutionary War service of her Patriot ancestor.

DAR volunteers in chapters throughout the country can provide guidance and assistance with the application process. Admission to membership in the National Society is through a chapter or as a Member-At-Large.

When you have discovered your own genealogical background, check to see if someone has already joined DAR using your ancestor.  You might have a portion of a lineage in common.  To find out check the Descendants and Ancestor links in the GRS.

If you discover a common lineage in the GRS, you may want to see the complete DAR application detailing this lineage, called a Record Copy. Electronic Record Copies may be purchased directly from the GRS.

By completing the application process you will discover how your ancestor helped to achieve American Independence.
