PIZZA NOVA'S "THAT'S AMORE PIZZA FOR KIDS" RAISES DOUGH FOR THE KITCHENER WATERLOO COMMUNITY FOUNDATION

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 worked up their appetites and walked into 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 Kitchener and Waterloo to the Kitchener Waterloo Community Foundation.

And at a cheque presentation made yesterday at the Pizza Nova location located at 1400 Ottawa Street South in Kitchener, Rosemary Smith, CEO of the Kitchener and Waterloo community Foundation accepted a cheque from Pizza Nova for $1,227.00.

"We are thrilled to partner with an organization that recognizes not only the needs we have in our community, but also in which we can make a lasting difference," adds Rosemary Smith, CEO of the Kitchener and Waterloo Community Foundation.

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