And the winner of Pizza Wars 6 is… LOU MALNATI’S!
On Wednesday, January 20th, our Wilmette pizzeria competed in Pizza Wars 6 at Niles North High School, and came away with the BIG W! The event was organized by Niles North students and administrators to benefit the District 219 Education Foundation. The Foundation raises funds for District 219 students who are in critical need by providing additional resources, like money for academic grants, and basic necessities like healthy meals.
At the event, we served slices of our famous deep dish pizza to about 1,100 hungry Pizza Wars 6 attendees. We had some stiff competition, but in the end, our pizza won out over all the others.
It wasn’t only a victory for Lou Malnati’s, the event was also a huge success for the District 219 Education Foundation. At the end of the night, $14,000 was raised to benefit the Foundation!
We’ll be back next year to defend our title!
