Thank you to pizza vendors who brought their staff and served hot pizza making this North Coast Rotary fundraiser a success! Close to 500 guests had the opportunity to sample up to three delicious pizzas from each of seven vendors. All guests could vote for their favorite pizza overall (People’s Choice Award), the pizza with the Best Sauce and the Best Specialty Pizza. In addition, our “Pro” sampled all the pizzas and voted for his favorite.
After tallying hundreds of votes, President Elect Joe Matuscak announced the results.
Neechi’s was awarded the People’s Choice trophy.
The Best Sauce trophy was awarded to Master Pizza.
Marco’s won the Best Specialty trophy and
The Pro’s Choice Award went to D’Tutanelli’s.
Joe Matuscak also recognized Donato’s, Cafe Piccolo and Pizza Hut for their enjoyable pizzas and their support, and thanked Peace, Love and Little Donuts for their generous donation of donuts.
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.
