EDMONTON — The Smiles Foundation’s spring fundraiser kicked-off at Pizza 73 last week, in support of Children’s Miracle Network and its member children’s hospitals in Western Canada.
Until May 14, customers can help support the fundraiser by purchasing the special 9” smile pizza for $4.99. Each purchase will help fund critical care, research, training and equipment purchases at local children’s hospitals.
“Doing what we can to help children in the community is the driving force behind the fundraiser,” says Pat Finelli, CMO for Pizza 73. “A delicious pizza that helps make a difference in children’s lives is a winning combo.”
In 2016, Pizza 73, together with its parent brand Pizza Pizza, raised $500,000 for children’s hospitals, marking the most money ever raised in a single year during the campaign. Since the foundation’s launch in 2007, Slices for Smiles has raised $2.5 million for children’s causes in Canada.
