Candicci’s Restaurant and Bar Expresses Their Appreciation
BALLWIN, MO: (STLRealEstate.News) Candicci’s Restaurant and Bar, located at 100 Holloway Rd, Ballwin, MO, would like to express their sincere appreciation for the support of the community for two charitable events held over the recent summer weeks.
Candicci’s Restaurant was one of the participating restaurants that donated a percentage of sales on specific dates that benefited Ballwin police officer Mike Flamion and family. Officer Flamion was shot on July 8th and the community quickly pulled together to help the family. A few days after the shooting, it was announced that officer Flamion would require permanent medical assistance. “The turnout was overwhelming”, says Bob Candice, manager of Candicci’s Restaurant.
Further, on August 8th, Candicci’s supported a charitable golf tournament to support Project Wake-Up in memory of Ryan Candice, son of Bob Candice and Denise Candice. Friends of Ryan Candice has created a charitable foundation, Project Wake Up, to raise funds to pay for a film documentary that will help eradicate the stigma of mental illness.
They have created a GoFundMe Page with a goal of $150,000. As of today, August 19, at approximately 8 pm, Project Wake UP has raised more than $103,000. What the friends of Ryan Candice are accomplishing will make a difference in the lives of a lot of people.
While Candicci’s was not the organizer of either event, “I just want to help”, says Bob Candice. Candicci’s involvement for the Dine Out project to benefit police officer, Mike Flamion was to contribute 20% of sales on three different business days and the contribution to the golf tournament was donating all food for the event, which was a huge success raising more than $13,000.
Full of emotions Candices’ comment was simple, but respectfully sincere, “all I can say is thank you and we will continue helping all we can,” says Candice.
