CHHS Wins Jersey Mike’s Challenge; Schools Raise $7K

By WCHL News Posted May 6, 2014 at 4:26 pm

Last weekend, Chapel Hillians gave nearly $7,000 to support programs at Chapel Hill and East Chapel Hill High Schools – two dollars at a time.

The occasion: a weekend-long promotion sponsored by Jersey Mike’s to celebrate the grand opening of their new location at Chapel Hill North. Customers received a free sub if they presented a coupon (printable on Chapelboro.com) and donated at least $2 to either school.

Students, teachers and administrators from both schools competed all weekend long to raise the most money. (There was an incentive: Jersey Mike’s pledged to donate an additional $1000 to the winning school; the second-place school got an additional $500.)

In the end, Chapel Hill High emerged victorious, raising a total of $3,980.13. East Chapel Hill finished in second, with $2,992.76 raised.

Charlie Farris of Jersey Mike’s joined WCHL’s Aaron Keck on the Monday Afternoon News to reveal the winner.
