On Thursday, January 19th, our Downers Grove store participated in Pizza Wars at Downers Grove High School and walked away with the title of Best Sauce! At the event, we served slices of our famous deep dish pizza to about 700 hungry Pizza Wars guests.
The event was organized by the District 99 Education Foundation. The Foundation raises funds to obtain resources to enhance the educational experiences for students and teachers alike by providing academic grants and creating new scholastic programs. At the end of the night, $15,000 was raised to benefit the Foundation!
The Foundation provides opportunities for enhanced student learning, and proceeds from the event will support this initiative.
The event was a big success, with over 300 attendees, and a total of eight pizza vendors. At the end of the night, after all of our slices of deep dish pizza were served, and all of the votes were tallied, sadly we didn’t come away with a 1st place victory. But you can bet we will be back next year to win that title!
