PJ & Company Hosts “Dine for a Cause” on Tuesday, March 23

PJ & Company, a classic American café serving breakfast, lunch and dinner on Wells Ave., is hosting “Dine for a Cause” on Tuesday, March 23 from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. in honor of Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month. PJ & Company is generously donating 10 percent of all proceeds to Community Health Alliance so that they can provide colorectal cancer preventative screenings to the uninsured and underinsured.


“Colon cancer is the third most common cancer in the United States,” said Maria Partida, cancer care coordinator for Community Health Alliance. “Colon cancer can be detected by performing screening tests such as a fecal immunochemical test (FIT) or colonoscopy.”


Currently one in three adults are not being screened as recommended. With regular screenings, colon cancer can be prevented. When colon cancer is detected at an early stage before it has spread, the five-year survival rate is about 90 percent. Community Health Alliance has been working to increase colorectal cancer screenings to protect their patients from colorectal cancer.


“We are grateful for businesses like PJ & Company who want to improve the health of our community,” said Oscar Delgado, CEO of Community Health Alliance. “Whether you dine-in or takeout, know that you’re supporting a great mission to provide quality and affordable healthcare for all.


If you choose to takeout on March 23, please call PJ & Company at (775) 323-6366 to order ahead.
