The first 75 customers through the door will receive free Moe’s burritos for a year and all guests will receive a free Moe’s lunch, which includes one free entrée and drink per customer, while supplies last. The free burritos for a year prize entitles each winner to one burrito per week at the East York Moe’s. In addition, free Moe’s spirit t-shirts will be given to the first 600 customers in line for the V.I.P. Party.

Later that evening from 5 to 8 p.m., the East York Moe’s will host another $10 All You Can Eat pre-opening fundraiser event with 100 percent of the net sales benefitting the Central York School District elementary and middle schools.
