Celebrity Pizza Night

What fun to watch her open that door!
So I'm really tired today and I'm pretty sure it has something to do with that moonlighting I did Thursday night with Papa John's. You see, it was Celebrity Pizza Night so guess who spent four hours delivering pizzas after school and into the evening? Yep, yours truly along with 22 other staff members from Westwood-Bales. Volunteers from the PTO drive the cars and faculty from the school deliver the hot and fresh pizzas to our school families. To entertain our supporters, we might have a song, cheer, or poem. As an added bonus, our first graders made these AdOrAbLe thank-you cards that we attached to the top of the pizza boxes. And what's in it for us? Papa John's donates all of the tip money plus 20% of their sales during that block of time directly back to the school, so it's a nice little FUNdraiser for us.

In fact, the first time we did this, we earned four thousand dollars. The second time around, the novelty had worn off a bit and the net wasn't quite that substantial, but it was significant enough to warrant giving it a third shot. So I'm not sure yet just how much money we made, but there were kids waiting at their window as if they were expecting Santa to show up with their pizza, so this I know for sure: we made a few special someones smile and that made my investment totally worth it!

This just in - our school earned $3082 and some odd cents from this FUNdraiser - yay!

  3. Barbara:
    If you brought pizza to my house, I'd invite you in to sit down and share a slice.

    Apparently, your talents are ENDLESS!

    Still in awe,
