November 28, 2017 // Franchising.com // HARRISBURG, Penn. - The results are in, and Arooga’s brings it again by raising more than $13,000 in October for breast cancer awareness.
Arooga’s Grille House & Sports Bar raised funds for the month of October to benefit the Feel Your Boobies Foundation, the Terry Brodeur Breast Cancer Foundation, and the Gloria Gemma Breast Cancer Foundation, topping the more than $10,000 they raised in 2016 for the same organizations.
