For $85 (not counting tax and service fee), guests can grab a tray and walk the line to sample food and interact with the chefs. DJs Jennifer Miller and Paul Paredes will keep the atmosphere lively.

The Place: Jersey Mike's Subs restaurants in DFW The Event: March Month of Giving The Cause: Wipe Out Kids' Cancer Now until March 27, Jersey Mike's Subs will donate money to Wipe Out Kids' Cancer: 25 cents for each regular sub sold, and 50 cents for each giant sub sold. In addition, each restaurant will have a donation bucket for customers to hand over their own contributions. If you give $5, you get six Silly Bandz and a coupon for a free chip and drink. Battling childhood cancer should be enough incentive, but now we're talking Silly Bandz. Who could say no?
March 28 is the big day for Jersey Mike's and WOKC. Customers who donate at least one dollar (and come on, don't be stingy) will get a free regular sub.
