The chain’s Slices for Smiles fundraiser will run from October 18th to October 30th across Alberta, British Columbia and Saskatchewan.

Customers can also add a donation to any order placed online, in store or by phone.

“Thanks to our loyal customers, the last 25 years have been filled with prosperity and fun,” said Pat Finelli, chief marketing officer for Pizza 73. “The Slices for Smiles fundraiser is a great way for us to show our thanks and give back to the community.”

Other anniversary celebrations include a scratch and win contest that gives customers a chance to win thousands of food prizes, 42” plasma televisions and all-inclusive trips to Varadero, Cuba.
