What goes on at a Lou Malnati’s Company Picnic?
The picnic is a day where our entire Chicagoland team (our Phoenix team enjoyed their picnic in May!) comes together for a day of fun. We start it off with a soccer tournament, winner gets bragging rights for the year, and each store designs a team t-shirt that shows off their creativity and team spirit. There’s family fun games and entertainment, and of course, food.
We appreciate your understanding as we continue this tradition.
On Saturday, December 31st, enjoy a family-friendly Kid’s New Year’s Eve Party at your local participating Lou Malnati’s. Toast the New Year, celebrate with friends and family, and dig in to a delicious meal. The best part? You’ll enjoy all of this without delaying bed times! Continue Reading ›
This year, on Saturday, November 19th, we filled over 1,200 baskets! Each basket includes everything needed to make a Thanksgiving feast, including turkey, canned fruits and vegetables, soups, cookies, and more. Hand-drawn cards, made by the kiddos in attendance, were also included in the baskets.
This event is not only a way for all of us to give thanks by giving back, but it’s really a hallmark of our tradition of generosity here at Lou Malnati’s.

What was the total? Upwards of $280,000!
These much needed funds will be donated to cancer research and treatment programs at the Northwestern Brain Tumor Institute, Lurie Children’s Hospital, and Gilda’s Club. We are proud to continue to support these organizations!
The Cancer Research Benefit took place on Saturday, September 17, 2016 and guests embraced the theme of the event by donning Hawaiian shirts and hula skirts for a “Lou’au.” We also held our first ever online auction after the event, raising even more money for the cause.
Thank you again to all of the supporters of the 46th Annual Lou Malnati’s Cancer Research Benefit…we’ll see you next year!
The first Deep Dish Dash was held in 2012, to celebrate the cancer survivors on staff at Lakewood Lou’s. One of those team members was Meagan Sunde, who lost her battle with cancer in November 2014. This year, to honor Meagan, to celebrate our involvement in the Lakewood community, and to raise money for the Family Health Partnership Clinic’s breast cancer fund, we brought the dash back!
