Edmonton – The Pizza 73 team is offering its “Smile Pizzas,” to celebrate National Pizza Month and the return of its annual Slices for Smiles fundraiser.

From Oct. 19 to Nov. 22, pizza lovers in Western Canada will have the opportunity to savour a pie in support of Children’s Miracle Network.

Customers are invited to support the cause by walking in to their local Pizza 73 and picking up a special nine-inch pizza topped with a pepperoni smile for $4.99. The smile pizza will also be available for delivery with the purchase of another pizza. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of these pizzas will benefit Children’s Miracle Network and its member children’s hospitals in Western Canada.

“We are thrilled to renew our commitment to making more smiles happen in support of Children’s Miracle Network,” said Pat Finelli, chief marketing officer for Pizza 73, in a news release. “This year is particularly significant as we not only celebrate our company’s 30th anniversary, but also hope to break the $2 million fundraising milestone together with our sister-brand Pizza Pizza. Our operators are happy to participate in this initiative in hopes of supporting children in our communities.”

Pizza patrons can also support the fundraiser by adding a donation to orders placed by phone, online or through Pizza 73’s newly relaunched iPhone app and website.

“This campaign is another great reason to enjoy pizza,” said John Hartman, chief operating officer in Canada for Children’s Miracle Network. “Customers can feel good knowing a portion of the proceeds will help raise critical funds for our local children’s hospitals in Western Canada.”
