Tucson Girls Chorus and Daisy Mae’s Steak House Team up to Benefit CFB

The Tucson Girls Chorus will team up with Daisy Mae’s Steak House on Saturday, January 17, 2009 to benefit the Community Food Bank.

For many years patrons of Daisy Mae’s have stapled dollar bills, with personal notes, to the walls of the steakhouse.  In 2001, after 9/11, local firefighters removed bills from the walls and sent over $7,000 to the New York Fire Department.

Dan Brady and his staff at Daisy Mae’s have donated the collection of bills to the Community Food Bank and with the help of the Tucson Girls Chorus will retrieve the bills from the walls on Saturday, January 17th beginning at 2:00 PM.  Daisy Mae’s Steak House is located at 2735 W. Anklam Road.

For every $1 donated, the food bank can distribute $9 worth of food.  If the public would like to support this event with a donation, they may call Daisy Mae’s at (520) 792-8888.

“The Tucson Girls Chorus is proud to help make this donation to the Community Food Bank,” said Beth Walkup, Interim Executive Director of the Tucson Girls Chorus.  “In addition to the music experience, community involvement is an important part of the mission of the Girls Chorus.  We appreciate the help from Dan Brady and his staff at Daisy Mae’s.”

The Tucson Girls Chorus will be assisted by volunteers from Davis Monthan Air Force Base.
