This Tuesday, at both Bombers Burrito Bar locations (258 Lark Street, Albany & 447 State Street, Schenectady), we will be giving away FREE BURRITOS from the hours of 11:00am – 4:00pm (both upstairs and downstairs.)
The reason behind this free burrito day is to raise some money for 2 of our friends/customers who have stumbled across some bad luck recently….
Mike Conigliaro, a young guy and a local Siena Grad, was diagnosed with cancer in 2008. Â He’s had a tough bout with it, having to go through four treatments of chemotherapy. Â I could go on and on and tell you how shitty it’s been for Mike and his new wife Christina, but I think it’s told perfectly here, on his friend Graig’s fundraising page. Â Please read it.
To help raise money for Mike, we will be giving away free burritos at our Lark Street location on Tuesday 4/20, and there will be a table set up at the entrance of the restaurant where you can give money to Mike’s cancer fight. Â If you can’t make it in for your free burrito, you can also give to Greg’s “Run for Mike 2010“.
Alysia Santo, 24, grew up in Rotterdam N.Y. and attended Mohonasen schools. Following graduation from college she moved to New York City and was working as a waitress while applying to graduate schools. She was accepted to Columbiaâ€™s School of Journalism on Mach 12th 2010.
On March 31st 2010 she was diagnosed with Leukemia.
Forced to give up her job and lacking insurance, Alysia temporarily returned to her parents house in Rotterdam. Â She is currently undergoing treatment with chemotherapy drugs that necessitates frequent appointments at Bellevue Hospital in New York City. She is hoping to move forward with her plans to attend Columbia, dependent upon the success of her treatment.
To help raise money for Alysia, we are going to set up a table at our Schenectady location where you can donate money to help Alysia with her fight against Leukemia.
Mike & Alysia, we wish you both a very speedy recovery, and hopefully we’ll raise a lot of money for you both.
To anyone interested, please feel FREE to get burritos at both places if you’d like, just show up with some bills in your hands to give to these fine folks.
