“With the biggest crowd in 4 years, Avon High school was proud to support North Coast Rotary’s annual pizza bake off!” commented Avon Superintendent Ben Hodge. Close to 400 guests enjoyed sampling pizza and voting for their favorites. Many guests continued on to the Fusion concert sure of a seat in the new expanded capacity Performing Arts Center.
White Box Pizza won the People’s Choice Award and the Best Crust Award; Master Pizza won Best Pepperoni; Marco’s Pizza won Best Specialty and Domino’s Pizza won the Judge’s Choice Award. Rotary thanks these pizzerias for their participation.
Joe Matuscak, Rotary club and foundation president and Doug Maurer who coordinated the event thank the many guests who attended, the Rotarian and Interact Club volunteers, Avon High School staff, the Fusion Concert performers, Midway Trophies and our club and foundation sponsors (see Placemat Recognition).
North Coast Rotary donated $100 towards the Avon Unified Sports organization. Remaining proceeds will be used for youth and community initiatives.
The 14th Homecoming Great Pizza Bake-Off ended yesterday just in time for the big game!
Pizzeria winners were ROMEO’s Peoples’ Choice (Overall Favorite); MASTER PIZZA Pro’s Choice; PIZZA HUT for Best Sauce; DOMINO’S for Best Pepperoni and OLD SCHOOL for Best Specialty pizza.
Rotarians, Key Club members, Interact Club members and Avon Lake school staff worked together to provide a welcoming environment for several hundred guests to enjoy samples of pizza, raffles and kids fun – facepainting and more.
A big thank you to our Foundation’s main sponsors: Ford Motor Company, Peter & Co. Jewelers, Bendix Commercial Vehicle Systems, Brian Kyles Landscapes of Distinction, Buckeye Bank and Carol Murphy of Keller Williams Realty.
Funds raised from this event will support scholarships, youth and community initiatives.
North Coast Rotary thanks the Avon School Administration – Ben Hodge, Kristina Buller, and Rob Woods; the Avon Music Boosters; and Avon students, families and friends for your support at North Coast Rotary’s Great Pizza Bake-Off!
Everyone seemed to enjoy the varied pizza samples from Cafe Piccolo, Donatos, D’Tutanelli’s, Marco’s, Masters, Neechi’s and Pizza Hut and especially the generously donated donuts from Peace, Love and Little Donuts.
Funds raised will be used for multiple youth initiatives including leadership seminars, speech and writing contests, international youth exchange, scholarships and other programs.
Sample pizza, vote for your favorites and support Rotary! Vendors include: Cafe’ Piccolo, Domino’s, Marco’s, Master, Neechi’s, Pizza Hut and D’Tutanelli’s. Desserts courtesy of Peace, Love and Little Donuts.
North Coast Rotary will also have, on-hand, a collection trailer that is used for collecting used medical equipment and supplies. The equipment and supplies collected are ultimately sent to needy countries throughout the world. As an example, if you have an old walker, or a pair of crutches, or even the likes of a no-longer used knee or ankle brace, please bring them to the Pizza Bake-Off. You will be doing a great service and you’ll likely clear something out of your closet that you’ve been meaning to get rid of anyways. Additionally, if you have something too large, to be dropped off (i.e. a hospital bed), alternate arrangements can be made to have the medical equipment picked up from your residence.
North Coast Rotary thanks the over 400 guests who joined us for the 3rd annual Great Pizza Bake-off at Avon High School on Thursday February 8th. Another great event with exceptional pizza to sample, ice cream from Mitchell’s, and cookies from Sprenger.

Best Sauce – Pizza Hut –5041 N. Abbe, Elyria, OH 44035

Thank you to all of our supportive Pizzerias, to Avon High School, especially the Evening’s Emcee Rob Woods, to Assistant Superintendent Ben Hodge, to Sprenger Health Care for providing the delicious dessert cookies, to Mitchell’s ice cream and to the North Coast Interact Club who served drinks and desserts, and helped youngsters with Putting-Out-Polio.
