Mimi's Cafe begins heart health campaign
VICTORVILLE • Mimi's Cafe in Victorville will help women to think heart smart by supporting the American's Heart Association's "Go Red For Women Movement" in February.
“Mimi’s wants you to put your hearts up in support of the women we love and many more who are impacted by this disease every day,” said Mark Mears, president of Mimi’s Cafe, in a news release.
Beginning Feb. 1, the Mimi’s “Goes Red Campaign” will offer each guest a free cup of signature soup when they wear red in support of the fight against heart disease.
Guests will also be able to donate $1 and receive a heartshaped tribute card to display inside the restaurant, or $5 and receive a limited edition sparkle red dress lapel pin. Donations can also be made online at www.MimisCafe.com.
The local goal is to get at least 2,000 donations, with the national goal 200,000 donations from 145 Mimi’s locations across the country.
“It’s a good cause. Heart disease affects women all over the United States and many women are unaware. This is us doing our part to raise awareness; we hope our involvement helps raise awareness locally,” said Dave Allen, manager of the Victorville Mimi’s.
