Boston Pizza’s Kids Cards Raise ‘Dough’ for Children and Families Across Canada
Richmond, B.C., November 1, 2010 – Throughout the month of November, Boston Pizza guests can help support Canadian children and families by purchasing a Boston Pizza Kids Card for a minimum donation of $5.00 with proceeds benefiting the Boston Pizza Foundation. In exchange for their donation, guests receive a card with five free kids meals.
“This November Boston Pizza wants to give back to our guests who so generously donate to the Boston Pizza foundation,” says Steve Silverstone, Executive Vice President of Marketing at Boston Pizza International Inc. “Our Kids Card program is the perfect way for families to make a meaningful charitable donation while also receiving something special for their own children at the same time.”
Since its inception, the Boston Pizza Foundation has raised more than $10.5 million for a number of worthwhile charitable organizations across Canada including the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada, Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, and Kids Help Phone.
“For more than 20 years, our guests have helped us raise funds that contribute to the health and well-being of children and families in need,” says Cheryl Treliving, Executive Director of the Boston Pizza Foundation. “As we head towards the holiday season, we encourage families to think of others by supporting the Boston Pizza Foundation through the purchase of Kids Cards in November.”
