PIZZA NOVA'S "THAT'S AMORE PIZZA FOR KIDS" RAISES DOUGH FOR BOYS & GIRLS CLUBS OF KAWARTHA LAKES

TORONTO, May 25, 2011 /CNW/ - The results are in!  Pizza Nova's That's Amore Pizza for Kids fundraising event was a success!

On May 10/11, over 120 Pizza Nova locations across Southern Ontario participated in the annual event to benefit local children's charities.

Thousands of customers lined out the doors at Pizza Nova locations across the province to demonstrate their support for a good cause.

Pizza Nova was very proud to announce at a cheque presentation that this year's single-day total was $57,359!

Throughout the annual, all-day event, medium pepperoni pizzas were served for only $4.99, and Pizza Nova donated $1 from each pizza sold raised at their locations in both Lindsay and in Peterborough to Boys and Girls Clubs of Kawartha Lakes.

And at a cheque presentation made last week at the Pizza Nova location located at 321 Kent Street West in Lindsay, Pizza Nova presented a cheque to Boys and Girls Clubs of Kawartha Lakes for $726.00.

"Boys & Girls Clubs of Kawartha Lakes provide inspiring and empowering services to some of the most vulnerable and deserving members of this community. It's an absolute honor to support their services in any way that we can." says Stephanie Angelone, Vice President Marketing for Pizza Nova.

Pizza Nova has raised over $900,000 for Ontario's children's charities.
