Just a short note to say thanks for your support.   Last Friday 7848 Charities raised well over $1100 for the Children’s Angel Foundation.  Your support is greatly appreciated and always needed.  Visit their website to learn more.

7848 Charities Benefit for OCJ Kids

Hello Everyone.  It’s a new year and Dei-Zinz’ along with the other members of 7848 Charities are pleased to invite you back to another year of our charity Bar-B-Ques.  The first charity event for 2011 will benefit OCJ Kids, an organization helping one of our most valuable treasures, our youth.  OCJ Kids’ charter is described in their mission statement:

Our Mission

Youth Are Amazing! They hope, dream, challenge, learn and lay the groundwork for their future and ours. The education, experience and family values instilled in a teen will follow them for the rest of their lives.

Every day, youth in society are exposed to unhealthy and unstable futures. OCJ Kids’ Mission is to equip at risk and troubled teens by providing them tools, resources, and positive adult role models to succeed and excel in every area of life.

This is a wonderful, worthy cause, so please come by and lend your support.  See the details in the flyer below.

Thank you all and hope to see you Friday.  If you can’t make it then, Dei-Zinz’ will gladly hold any donation you care to make in advance.

7848 Charities Winter Event Raised Over $1000 for Phoenix Rescue Mission

Our December Bar-B-Que was another successful fundraiser, raising over $1000 in cash donations plus food, clothing and other items for the Phoenix Rescue Mission.  In addition to the Bar-B-Que, Dei-Zinz’ also sponsored a Season of Caring and side-walk sale from which participating vendors donated a portion of their sales.

This was the last fundraiser for 2010 but we’ll be back again the last week of January, 2011.  Thanks to all of you who supported the 7848 Charities-sponsored organizations this year.  Since September of 2009 we have raised nearly $15,000 and we could not have done it without you. 

Please plan to help us continue the aid next year, knowing that all donations go to the charities.  The merchants comprising 7848 Charities provide all the foodand condiments for the Bar-B-Qs and the labor and advertising so all of your donation goes to its intended purpose.  Visit our facebook page at the (logo) link below to learn more7848 Charities.

Thanks, again, for your support and have a wonderful holiday season.

DEI-ZINZ Co-Sponsored FundRaiser for ICM August 27

First, let me say a heart-felt  “Thank You So Much” to all who came by last month to support our fund-raiser for the family of Officer Travis Murphy.  With your help we raised $1600.  I know his family is most appreciative.

Have your lunch in the air-conditioned comfort of the sponsoring merchants and let them know they, too, are appreciated.
