Orlando, FL, June 20, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- A really good burger paired with an order of golden-brown fries. Talk about an iconic American image. Combine that with their tradition of coming to the aid of others when they need help, and you have the foundation for Joshua’s Be Brave Burger Bash. The event takes place from 5 to 8 p.m. on Thursday, June 27, at Beth’s Burger Bar in downtown Orlando.
The namesake for the Burger Bash is 3½-year-old Joshua Chambers, who was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia, in February. Joshua is responding well to treatment, but his battle won’t end anytime soon. Either will the stream of expenses not covered by insurance. That’s why 10 percent of all sales during the event will go to Joshua’s benefit fund.
“I’ve known the Chambers family for several years, and Joshua has a special place in my heart,” said Beth Steele, owner of Beth’s Burger Bar. “He’s such a cutie, and so smart and courageous. The little guy just lights up the room when he walks in, and I want to do whatever I can to help him.”
Be Brave T-shits and wristbands will be on sale the night of the event. Proceeds from those items also go to Joshua’s benefit fund. Beth’s Burger Bar is at 24 E. Washington St. in Orlando.
About Be Brave
On Feb. 28, 2013, 3½-year-old Joshua Chambers was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL). Jeremy Chambers, who is Joshua’s father and a social-media professional, started BeBrave.me as a repository of information about his son’s progress so family and friends could stay up to date. It also serves as a fundraising hub in an effort to satisfy expenses related to Joshua’s care.
