Pizza Pizza and Pizza 73 recently wrapped up their 2014 Slices for Smiles campaigns and what a year it was! The company announced a record-breaking fundraising total of $375,000 to go to Children’s Miracle Network and its member hospitals throughout the country.
Throughout the year, the two brands contributed a portion of proceeds from popular menu items towards Slices for Smiles, which included pepperoni smile pizzas and walk-in specials. Funds were also raised through in-store events, organized with Children’s Miracle Network member hospitals, patient ambassadors and local celebrity personalities, with donations collected in store, online, by phone and through the company’s mobile ordering apps.
Since the campaign’s inception in 2008, Pizza Pizza Limited and its customers have raised more than $1.65 million.
“We’re thrilled by the generous support of Pizza Pizza and Pizza 73 team, their loyal customers and the enthusiasm behind the Slices for Smiles campaign,” said John Hartman, Chief Operating Officer of Children’s Miracle Network. “This program gives customers the opportunity to make a big impact on local children in need through its network locations across Canada.”
Donations to CMN help fund critical services, leading-edge research, purchase new equipment and pay for uncompensated care.
Pizza Pizza and Pizza 73 plan to build on the success of their 2014 initiatives and will continue with new campaigns in April and October, 2015 and, as always, Torchia is ever-excited to participate yet again.
