Feb. 4, 2015, Toronto – Pizza Pizza Limited, parent company to Pizza Pizza and Pizza 73, has made a donation of $375,000 to
Children's Miracle Network and its 14 member hospitals across Canada through its Slices for Smiles
campaign.

In 2014, the two brands contributed a portion of
proceeds from popular menu items towards Slices for Smiles, which
included pepperoni smile pizzas and walk-in specials, the company said in a news release. Funds were also
raised through in-store events, organized with Children's Miracle
Network member hospitals, patient ambassadors and local celebrity
personalities, with donations collected in store, online, by phone and
through the company's mobile ordering apps.

"We're thrilled by the generous support of Pizza Pizza and Pizza 73 team, their loyal customers and the enthusiasm behind the Slices for Smiles
campaign," said John Hartman, chief operating officer of Children's
Miracle Network, in the release. "This program gives customers the opportunity to make a
big impact on local children in need through its network locations
across Canada."
