Benefit Dinner at Jimmy Buff's Wed, 10/21/09 3:55 PM (permalink)
"All You Can Eat" benefit dinner at Jimmy Buff's on Monday November 16, 2009. I have an employee and more importantly a friend who is dying of bone cancer and his wish is to see his family in Peru before he passes away. The problem is he cannot afford the airplane ticket. I will donate all proceeds from that night, I will charge $10.00 for adults and $5.00 for kids 12 and under.
They can eat and drink from 4pm until closing which is 8pm. Adults can choose from our single hotdog or our single sausage and the kids can choose from our kid's meal menu. Please try to make an effort to be there, We will have a 50/50 raffle and a bake sale. If you cannot make it and you would like to donate you can mail it to me at 354 Rt. 10 West. East Hanover, NJ 07936 Thanks Jim

    Jimmy,

    I'll be there, and I encourage everyone to show up. Many of you have been to Jimmy Buff's on the New Jersey Hot Dog Tour and know what a great person, host, and friend Jimmy has been to us. Please show up to help someone who has been dealt a devastating blow. Let's help him see his family again. If you can't come, please donate something.

          I called Pete Genovese who does the Munchmobile series for the Star Ledger. I left him a message and asked him to mention the Benefit Dinner. Hopefully he will.

            I went to Jimmy Buff's today. Every Tuesday is Fat Tuesday where you can get a double Italian Hot Dog for the price of a single. Can't beat that. My absolute favorite meal washed down with a few beers. I did not see Jimmy, but there are signs promoting the benefit dinner. The counter people are donating the money in the tip jar to Eddy Gonzalez.

            I hope to see many of you there. Anybody planning to come? If not, please send a donation and say a prayer.

              It's a little bit of a haul, but it's for a good cause.  And, I haven't experienced Jimmy Buff's yet.  May be a little late, but should be there.  See you all there.

                        Hello all ,

                        I had planned to tough it out being a little under the weather and have been in fact taking Dayquil , thanks Adeptone for the suggestion .

                        Plans have changed though as a family member has passed away and I will be helping with the arrangements

                        I will be sending a check to Jimmy in care of the benefit .

                        Sorry I wont make it there and hope everyone has a great time

                        Benzee

                          I stopped by at Jimmy Buffs tonight. It was good to see a nice crowd.

                          My buddy and I had 3 chilidogs with mustard.

                          This was the third time I been to Jimmy Buffs and I have to say his chili was the best ever.

                          Great dogs, good chili, good friends, you can't get any better than that.

                                                        It Was Bigger Than Hot Dogs

                            Every once in a while, people get together and show the good they are capable of doing. The warm glow of knowing you are involved in a noble pursuit filled the building.

                              Indeed, this was very heartwarming. I'm glad I didn't miss it. It was nice to see the swell turnout, and good to schmooze with some hot dog friends, old and new. And, you know I had a couple or three dogs, too. It was all great

                               Good going, Jimmy Buffs.

                              It was a great time and a great turnout. I was there around 4:30 and there only a few people. Most were still working or travelling home from work. As the night went on, many arrived. It was nice to see the support for someone  who needs and deserves it.

                                Sounds like a fantastic time. It's nice to see people getting together to help another out. Does anyone have pictures from the event? (I'm sure Jimmy Buff will put some up)
