(BRADENTON, FL) The newest Sweet Tomatoes, located at 5407 University, is scheduled to open on Monday, July 12. To celebrate the grand opening, Sweet Tomatoes has partnered with the American Cancer Society, Bradenton Chapter, by hosting a preview fundraiser event on the following dates:
- Friday, July 9, from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
- Saturday, July 10, from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
For only five dollars, guests can enjoy Sweet Tomatoes’ 45-foot salad bar full of fresh, seasonal vegetables and tossed salads, made-from-scratch soups and hand-crafted muffins, focaccia, breads and desserts. Sweet Tomatoes will donate 100 percent of the proceeds to American Cancer Society, a voluntary health organization dedicated to eliminating cancer as a major health problem by preventing cancer, saving lives, and diminishing suffering from cancer, through research, education, advocacy, and service.
The new Bradenton location will offer a rotating menu of more than 100 original, made fresh daily recipes featuring signature salads, soups, bakery goods and hot pasta sauces, at an all-you-care-to-eat price. All food is prepared without the use of artificial flavors, colors, additives or artificial trans fats. A different food theme is featured each month and the most popular menu items are rotated every two weeks. Items are showcased on a 45-foot salad bar and prepared exhibition style every 20 minutes.
“We’re thrilled to be the beneficiary of the new grand opening. Sweet Tomatoes is a great fit for the American Cancer Society. The fresh salads and healthy fare offered there fit well with the healthy lifestyle we aim to promote. In addition, Sweet Tomatoes offers such a great variety they can accommodate the many diet restrictions people undergoing cancer treatments have,” said Judy Athari, American Cancer Society. Money raised at this event, like all Relay For Life events, will go to provide direct patient support services in our local area and throughout Florida.”
Sweet Tomatoes seeks to be a vital and contributing part of each community in which it operates. To reach this goal, restaurants offer a “Fun-Raiser” program through which charities, churches, schools, athletic teams, scout troops and other non-profit organizations may raise funds by hosting in-store events. The restaurants assist in marketing the non-profit’s event by creating master flyers for distribution and promotion.
Sweet Tomatoes in Bradenton will be open daily from 11:00 a.m. – 9:00 p.m. on weekdays, 11:00 a.m.-10:00 p.m. on Saturday and 9:00 a.m. – 9:00 p.m. on Sundays.
