On Tuesday, August 7 (remember: that’s the evening before the Emerson-Garfield Neighborhood Picnic & Potluck) there will be a special fundraiser hosted by Pizza Rita on Indiana on behalf of the annual nationwide Night Out Against Crime. The event starts at 6pm and runs until 8pm at Corbin Park [map].
Pizza Rita will be selling slices of pizza and ice-cold pop for just 50¢. All proceeds from the pizza sales will benefit COPS North Central.
A number of items will be for sale at the event through a silent auction. As with the pizza money, all auction money goes to our local COPS Shop. There will also be Live Music (Zach Hval and The Liverwurst Lads ) and Visual Vortex fire dancers.
Please remember that this is a cash only event — that goes for the auction as well as the pizza. Although there are some tables at the park, bring your own folding chairs and picnic blankets (not to mention your appetite!). Parking is limited, too, so plan to walk or bike a few blocks instead of driving.
Questions? Contact Pizza Rita through their Facebook page or call Brian at 953-1486.
To mark the Night Out Against Crime you can also meet at your Block Watch captain’s home. But we have a feeling that cheap pizza in the park will be just a tiny bit more fun.
