The Story

*** An anonymous donor has come forward stating that for every $10,000 reached, he/she will match with $888 in honor of Art's favorite number, 8! Please share the link and thank you so much for continuing to help! ***

Arthur (Art) Fong has been the front man for Stanton's City Bites for over 30 years. He transformed the grocery store from a neighborhood corner shop to a famous mom and pop burger eatery. People may have come in as a stranger, but they always left as a friend thanks to Art.

Art is one of the most compassionate, patient, and goofy men you'll ever meet. His kindheartedness knows no bounds as he always tried to help people, even those he didn't know well. He would always let you know "it's not a problem," his signature phrase.

On the way to work one morning, Art unexpectedly suffered from a massive hemorrhagic stroke and had been comatose in the Neuro ICU from 2/19/2013 until he passed away 3/5/2013. He is survived by his wife, Theresa, and his two children, Jonathan and Samantha.

To help alleviate the medical and funeral expenses, any and all contributions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for giving a gift from the heart for Art. Please tell and show the people you care about that you love them, every day.
