Highlight #136: Passing on the message

I received the following message from Lindsay at Melissa Libby & Associates about a fundraiser at Pizza Fusion. It sounds like a good cause, if you are up for some za.

"I wanted to fill you in a fundraiser that all Pizza Fusion locations are participating in, including our local Pizza Fusion restaurant. The newest location in Mesa, Arizona had their grand opening party this past weekend, where they were able to raise $8,000 in support of the Smiths, who are still hospitalized for injuries due to a drunk driving accident in which they tragically lost their two sons earlier this month. Sadly, the restaurant was broken into and the newly-raised the funds were stolen. You can read more about this story, here. Now, in an effort to re-raise the money, Pizza Fusion locations everywhere have banded together and are accepting donations for the Smith family at their restaurants or on the website. Through a partnership with Wells Fargo, donations made out to the Tracy and Frank Smith family fund can be dropped off at any Pizza Fusion location or a local Wells Fargo. To show thanks for donations, the Pizza Fusion in Buckhead is offering a free personal cheese pizza to generous donations of $50 or more. The free pizza will be given during the following visit to the restaurant with a purchase of $25 or more. Pizza Fusion in Buckhead is located at the Astoria in the Aramore building at 2233 Peachtree Road; 404-351-9334."
