CiCi’s Pizza served up slices and icons for Special Olympics
During July, six CiCi’s Pizza locations around the state held their annual fundraiser and Cover the Cruiser event for Special Olympics. Stores not only served up slices of pizza but sold paper icons for $1.
The month long fundraiser ended with a Cover the Cruiser event with local law enforcement and athletes covering police vehicles with paper icons. Not only did our six locations do well throughout the month, they all had a great turnout for the Cover the Cruiser events. Not only did they cover the police vehicles, some athletes even covered themselves!
CiCi’s Pizza presented a check for $9,358 on August 14 at the Myrtle Beach location. The Myrtle Beach location made the most money out of 99 stores in eight participating states. They raised $4,239.
