Hill Street Café Partners with American Cancer Society

Burbank, CA. - Hill Street Café, a suburban family restaurant will work to help the American Cancer Society build awareness and garner funds for the Relay For Life of Burbank by donating a percentage of sales and promoting the cause during the month of June.

Hill Street will be outfitting the restaurant with banners and posters to promote for the American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life of Burbank which is a 24 hour cancer walk to increase cancer education, prevention, and raise funds. Hill Street Cafe serves an average 600 people per day who will all learn about the cause and support the cause just by eating at the establishment.

Owner Charbel Ghabi became a major supporter of the American Cancer Society through family experience, and decided to get his business involved. “I participated in the Relay For Life in Glendora a few years back and felt the tremendous impact that it made on the community. Now that I’m here in Burbank, I saw an opportunity to make an even bigger difference in the community here by raising funds and awareness for this great event.”

Hill Street Cafe has been a Burbank tradition for 5 years, serving “Homemade Style Cooking” where everything is made almost entirely from scratch. Charbel explains, “Our goal is to serve good food, fast with very outgoing, friendly customer service.”

Located at 3301 North Glenoaks Blvd. Burbank, CA 91504, restaurant hours are Sunday through Thursday 7am-10pm & Friday through Saturday 7am-11pm.

For those unfamiliar with the Relay For Life springtime event, it is an overnight community effort where individuals and teams camp out, barbecue, dance and take turns walking around a track relay style to raise funds to fight cancer. As day turns to night, participants will light hundreds of luminaria around the track in an inspiring ceremony to honor cancer survivors as well as friends and family members who have died from the disease. The Relay For Life event represents hope that those lost to cancer will never be forgotten, that those who face cancer will be supported, and that one day cancer will be eliminated. This year vow to remember three things: Celebrate, Remember, Fight Back. Relay For Life of Burbank will be held starting at 9 a.m., Saturday and Sunday, June 27th & 28th, at the Robert Gross Park, 2800 W. Empire Ave., in Burbank.
