At yesterday evening’s Night Out Against Crime event in Corbin Park, Pizza Rita raised $242 from merchandise sales and donations for COPS North Central. That’s not bad, considering that they were charging just 50¢ for large slices and pop — and they were selling the remaining whole large pizzas for just $3 (or two for $5!) at the end.
There was music by the Liverwurst Lads and Zach Hval, and later in the evening there were fire dancers from Visual Vortex. Brian Dickmann, owner of our neighborhood Pizza Rita, was on hand (along with plenty of his staff) to help run the evening and promote the many items that were available for auction — like a snowboard and vibrant Hawaiian shirts.
