GIVING TUESDAY, DO GOOD WITH BURRITOS
Black Friday. Cyber Monday. Giving Tuesday.
"Helping others, that must be one ingredient to success" - Porter Gale

Join us on Tuesday November 27th from 5:00PM to 9:00PM at the Chipotle located at 2901 Major Mackenzie Drive in Vaughan. Make dinner a selfless act by joining us on Giving Tuesday for a burrito (or bowl), and maybe even some chips and guacamole! Be sure to show this flyer, or mention that you are there to support the Hospice Vaughan Fundraiser so that a portion of the funds will be donated back to Hospice Vaughan. This Giving Tuesday, eat for change and get your guac on for a cause! Together we can all make a difference, one burrito at a time.
