Pizza 73 Delivers Smiles In More Ways Than One With Slices For Smiles Fundraiser

Slices For Smiles Fundraiser Returns April 18 To May 22, Aims To Hit $2.5 Million Milestone In 2016

April 19, 2016 // // EDMONTON, AB – Pizza 73 is offering customers a tasty, easy and cheesy way to support children’s hospitals in Western Canada. From April 18 to May 22, as part of its semi-annual Slices for Smiles fundraiser, Pizza 73 will offer special pepperoni smile pizzas in an effort to raise funds for Children’s Miracle Network.

Throughout the campaign period, the pizza chain will offer 9” pizzas topped with a pepperoni smile for $4.99, available for walk in orders, or it can be added to any delivery order.

 “An appetite for pizza and a worthy cause is all it takes,” said Pat Finelli, Chief Marketing Officer for Pizza 73. “This is a win-win for customers — they get a great tasting pizza at a great price, and have the opportunity to give back in the process.”

A portion of the proceeds from all smile pizzas sold is donated to help fund critical care, research and training and to purchase equipment at Children’s Miracle Network member hospitals in Western Canada through the Slices for Smiles Foundation.

“Pizzas, as a special treat, bring a lot of joy to families,” said Adam Starkman, Chief Development Officer for Children’s Miracle Network in Canada. “We’re delighted that Pizza 73 continues to invest in this fundraiser and that they give back to the community in such a meaningful way. Every dollar helps our hospitals deliver world-class care to children in need.”

To help support the cause, customers also have the opportunity to add a $1 donation to their orders, whether they’re placed in-store, by phone, online at or through Pizza 73’s handy iPhone ordering app.

Customers can visit any traditional Pizza 73 restaurant location in Alberta, British Columbia and Saskatchewan to participate in Slices for Smiles. All funds stay in the community in which they are raised to support the Children’s Miracle Network member hospital for that region.

To date, the Slices for Smiles Foundation has raised over $2 million for Children’s Miracle Network. For more information on Pizza 73’s fundraising initiatives or to make a donation, visit
