Chickie’s & Pete’s is once again celebrating National French Fry Day with their 8th Annual Crabfries for Heroes event which benefits the Fraternal Order of Police Survivors Fund. This year, every single penny raised from Crabfries for Heroes will go to the Fraternal Order of Police Survivors Fund. The Fund is a non-profit organization located in Philadelphia, PA, that raises money for families of Philadelphia Police Officers who have been tragically injured or who have passed away in the line of duty.
“We are back bigger than ever this year with one of our favorite Chickie’s & Pete’s traditions, Crabfries for Heroes benefiting the FOP Survivors Fund,” said Chickie’s & Pete’s Chairman and CEO Pete Ciarrocchi. “It’s an honor to be able to give back to such a great organization.”
“We are very excited about the return of the Crabfries for Heroes event,” said Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 5 President John McNesby. “While the last few years have been difficult for everyone, we have continued to go to Pete and Chickie’s & Pete’s for help when needed and we have never been turned away, in fact we are always embraced. This man and his team live their lives by being a part of our community every day and supporting our officers day in and day out.”
To date, Chickie’s & Pete’s has donated over $125,000 to the FOP Survivors Fund thanks to the monumental success of their event and the amazing support of the community.
This year marks the first year since the pandemic Chickie’s & Pete’s will be officially returning with their $1 Crabfries promotion. In celebration of its return, Chickie’s & Pete’s will be extending their typical one-day promotion to also include:
- Wednesday, July 13th for National French Fry Day – $1 Crabfries and $5 Personal Pitchers with proceeds benefiting the FOP Survivors Fund.
- Thursday, July 14th – Spot the Crabfries Express – The famous food truck will be visiting Philly landmarks to distribute free Crabfries. Track the location via Instagram @chickiesandpetes.
- Friday, July 15th – All locations will be launching brand new Happy Hour specials!
Crabfries® for Heroes started as a simple idea to say “Thank you” to police officers for their service and dedication to their communities. After seeing the need firsthand, Pete Ciarrocchi and his team decided to make a major commitment to The Fraternal Order of Police (FOP) Survivors Fund.
