For the last 13 years, Evan, now 17, and his brother Josh, now 15, have been running a hot cocoa stand for charity. What started out in their garage in Mamaroneck and moved indoors over the last 9 years has now raised over $40,000 for Pediatric Cancer Foundation. This year, Evan and Joshua’s Hot Cocoa Stand is moving to a new location in The Westchester, in White Plains, NY.
This year’s event will take place at The Westchester in White Plains, 125 Westchester Ave, White Plains, NY 10601 at Retail Level 1, Center Court, Nordstrom Wing. The dates and times are: March 9th from 12-6 and March 10th from 12-5. For more info, see the website at www.ejhotcocoa.com and Pediatric Cancer Foundation’s website at www.pcfweb.org.
In addition to hot cocoa, baked goods and raffles will be available. Raffled items include sports memorabilia and tickets from the Mets, Yankees, Giants, Jets, Rangers, Knicks, Nets and Islanders as well as non-sports donations from local businesses.
“I’m really excited about the hot cocoa stand moving to this great, new location. We raised over $8,000 last year alone at our first year at The Westchester, so I think we can be even more successful this time”, said Evan Greenberg, the CEO of Evan and Joshua’s Hot Cocoa stand.
“It’s hard enough for my wife and me to believe that the boys have been doing this for the last 13 years let alone that what started in our garage is now such a big endeavor. The boys deserve so much credit for its continued success,” said Ken Greenberg, dad and self-proclaimed CCO (Chief Cocoa Officer)
