Potbelly Sandwich Shop Gives Back

By Shelly Papinaw

Do you enjoy good food? Does giving to a charitable organization appeal to you? If you answered yes to both of these questions, then you may be interested in attending our fundraiser event at Potbelly Sandwich Shop in Fort Gratiot, MI on June 23rd from 12-3pm. The fundraiser benefits our Running For Rosebud 5k event, with proceeds going to Blue Water Pregnancy Care Center.

Not sure what to do? It’s simple. All that is required is for you to arrive at the Fort Gratiot Potbelly Sandwich Shop on June 23rd anywhere between 12 and 3pm, order the food you would like for lunch, present the actual flyer or image of the flyer shown in this article, and 25% of your purchase will automatically go to the Blue Water Pregnancy Care Center. Feel free to take your lunch to go or stick around, meet some people associated with the fundraiser, and listen to some good live music brought to you by Mike Taggart.


We do hope you can join us and offer your support to a good cause.  For any questions about the Running For Rosebuds 5k charity run, please contact me at
