Chicago’s Potbelly Sandwich Shops Kick off Summer with Shake Fundraiser for Girls Rock! Chicago

Neighborhood Sandwich Shops Shake Up Lunch Time to Raise Funds for Non-Profit while Highlighting Female Musicians

WHAT:  Nine Potbelly Sandwich Shops in downtown Chicago are kicking off summer by offering a limited time only “Girls Rock! Shake,” a delicious new shake featuring vanilla ice cream, strawberries and butter cookie crumbles. For every purchase of the shake, Potbelly will donate 50 cents to Girls Rock! Chicago, a non-profit organization dedicated to fostering girls’ creative expressions, positive self-esteem and community awareness through rock music. They believe that rock music can be a crucial tool in allowing young women to respond to preconceived notions of what they can do and what they can become. 

Plus, all summer long Potbelly continues to support local musicians by featuring Potbelly’s favorite female musicians.

WHEN:  The limited time only “Girls Rock! Shake” is available now through August 17th at the nine participating shops and the local female musicians will perform every Wednesday and Friday from Noon to 2 p.m. 

WHO:  Potbelly Sandwich Shop managers and team members, local musicians, local artists, loyal fans of the brand, and anyone who wishes to contribute to Girls Rock! Chicago. 

WHY:  Potbelly Sandwich Shop has a passion for community and a tradition of supporting its neighborhood musicians and nonprofit organizations.
