The Chatterbox Jug

For those of you lucky enough to have eaten at the Chatterbox Drive-In, one of Travelocity's "Top 10 Things to do in New Jersey," you know that they reliably provide outstanding food and service.  Although their hamburgers and milkshakes are undeniably delicious, the diverse menu offers stellar lobster rolls and an amazing Sante Fe Veggie Wrap (hungry yet?).  Apart from the fun atmosphere and great grub, the business also operates in a way that we don't often see in today's competitive world.  They regularly assist local not-for-profit organizations and provide free meals to active soldiers.

Well, you may have guessed where I'm going with this... the generosity of the Chatterbox strikes again!  Just one month ago, a jug went up at the Chatterbox to collect money for cancer research at Dana-Farber Cancer Insitute.  A picture of Augustus (my miracle baby) and yours truly was attached to the jug.  In addition, a short blurb sharing my cancer story and information about DFCI was included.  Needless to say, I was so grateful that they volunteered to do this and hoped that some loose change would be collected.  However, I grossly underestimated Gus's cuteness factor and how easily his smile would lure unsuspecting lunch-goers into donating.  In all seriousness, I was blown away by the overwhelming response.  Although we don't have a current grand total as there are still 69 days until Marathon Monday, you can see in the photos below that the generous patrons of the Chatterbox are donating much more than loose change.  Rumor has it that there may already be over $500!

I would like to express my sincere appreciation to the Chatterbox Drive-In and their munificent patrons.  It is so reassuring to know that there truly is an army of people fighting this horrible disease.  Thank you for all of your support!

***If you are interested in collecting donations for cancer research at your work place or any other establishment, please let me know and I will gladly send you a small package with everything you need.***
