Pizza Pizza tops $100,000 for sick children in 2008



Dec.
15, 2008, Toronto – Pat Finelli, chief marketing officer for Pizza Pizza, is
presenting a cheque today to the Children's Miracle
Network and SickKids representatives on behalf of the company's Slices
for Smiles Fund.



In 2008, Pizza Pizza made a corporate donation to SickKids
and hosted two Cheese for Charity Day fundraisers, where it sold
specially-priced slices and medium size pizzas to raise money for its Slices
for Smiles Fund in support of Children's Miracle Network.

The most recent
Cheese for Charity Day was held on Oct. 21 as part of the company's National
Pizza Month celebrations. Pizza Pizza also collected additional money in
support of sick children throughout the year through in-store donation boxes.

Children's
Miracle Network will be donating the money raised by Pizza Pizza's fundraising
efforts to its member hospitals in Ontario and Quebec to assist them with
conducting research, purchasing equipment and developing social programs for
children.
