Rising High Cafe’s Hoagies and Heroes campaign has partnered with the Center for Women to offer the “Power Up Panini” for the month of August. The sandwich was created by Terry Haas, featured Realtor on HGTV’s Designed to Sell and local Charlestonian. Ten percent of proceeds will benefit the Center for Women, an organization focused on providing empowerment for Lowcountry women.
The sandwich ingredients include chicken breast, avocado spread, tomato basil pesto, sprouts and Provolone cheese all grilled in Focaccia bread. The sandwich is $8 and includes a side item and fountain drink. Each purchase of the “Power Up Panini” includes automatic entry to win a free one-hour in-home design consultation from Haas. Each month a local charity will select a spokesperson to build a sandwich on their behalf with a portion of the proceeds from the sandwich sales going back to the organization.
