In honor of Pediatric Cancer Awareness Month, Koibito Poké is partnering with Arizona Cancer Foundation for Children to raise money for children and families affected by pediatric cancer.
Throughout the month of September, all four locations of the Hawaiin and Japanese-inspired eatery will donate $2 from every Signature Bowl sold to the Arizona Cancer Foundation for Children. Guests can choose between any of Kobito’s five Signature Bowls, which include The First Timer Bowl, Chicken & Shrimp Bowl, Tuna Trio Bowl, Koibito Bowl and Keto Bowl.
Money raised through the promotion will provide immediate assistance to cover expenses associated with a child’s cancer diagnosis, provide K9 therapy and counseling, birthday gifts, art classes, and overall emotional and financial support.
“Having a younger brother pass of leukemia at age 11 makes this a very important cause to me,” says Co-Founder and CEO of Koibito Poké Todd Stottlemyre. “My hope is that everyone will lock arms with us on fighting cancer and giving all kids a brighter future.”
The former MLB pitcher and three-time World Series Champion founded Koibito Poké in 2018 and is committed to serving the community through healthy, fresh, clean foods and giving back to neighbors in need.
Founded in 2013 by Chrisie Funari, Arizona Cancer Foundation for Children provides social, emotional and financial support for families managing the health and well-being of a loved one with pediatric cancer. Funari was inspired to launch the non-profit after she lost her young daughter, Ava, to cancer.
“Koibito Poké is an important partner of Arizona Cancer Foundation for Children,” says Funari. “We are so grateful to have a local business like Koibito Poké understand and support our mission during Pediatric Cancer Awareness Month. Koibito Poké and the support from our community is an integral part of Arizona Cancer Foundation for Children and allows us to offer our programs free of charge to 275 families annually.”
Koibito Poké is open from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. at all four locations in Arcadia, Chandler and Scottsdale.
