EventRotary Club of Evanston's PizzaFest!
PlaceGigio's Pizza
Address1001 Davis Street
DetailsPitching all you can eat pizza and soda, the Rotary Club of Evanston will host PizzaFest! – the club’s party to raise funds for local community groups – from 4:30-8:30 pm on Tuesday, May 16 at Gigio’s Pizza, 1001 Davis Street in Evanston. “Mayor Steve Hagerty will be among our celebrity servers from 6-7 pm,” says Dave Stumpf, club president. “We’ve also enlisted the help of Evanston Community Foundation’s President Monique Jones from 4:30-5:30 pm and both 2nd Ward Alderman Peter Braithwaite and 5th Ward Alderman Robin Rue Simmons from 5:45-6:45 pm. Come out and chat with them about Evanston.” Throughout the evening Rotary members will don aprons, dish out pizza, pour pop, and tend to guests to support initiatives vital to the well-being of Evanston. Among this year’s beneficiaries are Mudlark Theater, The Ridgeville Foundation, and the Moran Center. “PizzaFest! is such an amazing publicity effort for the Moran Center. We truly appreciate all of the support we receive from Rotary and want to ensure that we maximize our efforts to involve the community,” notes Joi Russell, Director of Strategic Partnerships at the James B. Moran Center for Youth Advocacy. Sharing a story of a woman whose granddaughter was spared repeated placement in the juvenile system due to the Moran Center’s invention, Joi expressed gratitude that the Rotary Club of Evanston helps make such work possible. Tickets for PizzaFest! – adults $20, children $12 – are available online and proceeds can be credited to an event beneficiary. Prices increase slightly when purchased at the door.
