Feb. 11, 2009, Toronto – To assist families in spending more
quality time together this Family Day, Pizza Pizza has partnered with leading
financial coach and chartered accountant Robin Taub to provide consumers with
ideas for fun and affordable activities that work up a healthy appetite.

“Pizza is the perfect food for sharing and is great for
families as it can be customized to suit everyone’s taste,” said Pat Finelli,
chief marketing officer at Pizza Pizza. 
“This Family Day, we’ve enlisted the help of a financial coach to
recommend affordable activities that can keep the family together while
enjoying the day.”

Taub’s tips will be available through Pizza Pizza’s newly
designed website at and through the company’s in-store
circuit television system.  In addition
to her affordable Family Day activities, Taub is also providing consumers with
general money saving tips and advice on how they can better manage their
personal finances.


“Spending time together as a family doesn’t have to break
the bank,” said Taub. “There are a number of activities both indoors and out
that families can engage in that not only allow them to spend quality time
together, but are also fun and affordable.”

Taub’s top five affordable Family Day activities this year:

Skating: Indoor and outdoor rinks exist in most communities and
in most cases are free.
Tobogganing: This is an easy, affordable way for active families to spend some
time together outdoors.  Board games: A
board game is an easy interactive way to spend some quality time together.  This option is especially good for families
who prefer staying indoors.
A winter bonfire – For families looking to do something unique, consider
getting the whole family together for a backyard bonfire complete with roasting
marshmallows and sipping hot chocolate. You could also invite your neighbours. 
Digital photography: The winter creates beautiful scenery that can serve as a
great back drop for family photos. 
Getting the family together, finding some prime locations and snapping
some shots is an easy way to spend the day together and has the added bonus of
capturing memories for years to come.
