Rockwall Dickey’s sponsoring event to help breast cancer victims

Dickey’s Barbecue Pit in Rockwall is teaming with the Bridge Breast Network charity to sponsor an event Feb. 5 to help North Texas women without insurance to pay for breast cancer treatment.

Called “Build a Bridge Save a Life” event, the event will be held at the Rockwall ISD Central Office Gym from 6-10 pm at 1050 Williams St.

“We wanted to sponsor and host an event that really meant something to us,” franchise owner Tim Grosse said. “This is a great opportunity to give back to a wonderful organization. By doing this, I feel like we can really make a difference in getting these women the treatment they need to save their lives.”

Tickets for the event can be purchased at the Rockwall Dickey’s location at 2951 Ridge Road, Suite 119, in the Kroger Food Store center.

Tickets are for $25 for couples, $40 for a family, $13 for an individual and $7 for children under 13.

“This is a cause that is close to people in our community” he said. “We hope to raise as much money and awareness as we can.”

Organizers said patrons can enjoy live music, raffle prizes as well as Dickey’s mascots.

Dickey’s will cater the event, as well as making a donation to the charity.

Dickey’s is a national brand, but each restaurant is locally owned. Dickey’s ownership encourages all franchise owners to engrain themselves in the surrounding community, according to President Roland Dickey Jr.

“We want to give the franchisees a foundation for success with a strong business model and ongoing support, but then we leave it in their hands to make their Dickey’s a community staple.”
