Customers can purchase 10-inch pizzas topped with pepperoni ‘smiles’ for $2 to help raise money for eight children’s hospitals across Canada. Since the inception of Slices for Smiles, Pizza Pizza has raised more than $2 million. After a successful 2015, it has extended this year’s fundraiser to five weeks in hopes of surpassing $2.5 million.
“We are delighted Pizza Pizza (and Pizza 73) continues this fundraiser and gives back to the community in such a meaningful way,” says Adam Starkman, chief development officer (CDO) for CMNH. “Every dollar helps our hospitals deliver world-class care to children in need.”
Other donations to support the cause can be made in-store, by phone, online or through Pizza Pizza’s mobile app. All funds remain local, supporting hospitals within the region where they were raised.
