Rochester, NY – There’s nothing like a Tim Hortons oven fresh chocolate chip cookie, unless it’s twice the size! Tim Hortons Smile Cookies are going on sale for $1 (tax excluded) at 23 stores across the Rochester area from February 5 - 11. The special double-sized chocolate chip cookies have double the meaning because all proceeds from the cookie sales will go towards Golisano Children’s Hospital at Strong.
“We are excited to bring back Smile Cookies to our customers and Rochester community again this year in support of Golisano Children’s Hospital at Strong. It’s a treat for our customers to enjoy the cookie and help the hospital at the same time,” said Penfield store owner Royale Fogarty. ”We are proud to support the children’s hospital and to showcase the generosity of our Rochester communities!”
Golisano Children’s Hospital at Strong is the region’s only hospital dedicated exclusively to the care of children. The Hospital provides the highest quality, state-of-the-art care to thousands of children from Rochester and the surrounding 17-county region who come to us for care. This 123-bed facility is a tremendous resource for children and their families.
"We are thrilled to be in partnership with our local Tim Hortons," says Scott Rasmussen, Executive Director of Development for Golisano Children’s Hospital. "Fundraising programs such as the Smile Cookie promotion support priority projects at Golisano Children’s Hospital. Our most recent completion of a Pediatric Surgical Suite is just one of the many enhancements the Children’s Hospital has done to help create a world-class facility to care for our children. We are grateful to Tim Hortons for their generosity and commitment to helping children.
