Pizza Pizza Limited will conclude 2010 having achieved its most successful year of fundraising by donating $175,000 to Children's Miracle Network.

Pizza Pizza Limited, through its Pizza Pizza and Pizza 73 banners, holds its Slices for Smiles fundraiser twice each year, during the third week of April and October respectively. This year, restaurants across the country participated by collecting donations and selling discounted pizzas. Athletes from local sports teams were also on hand in several communities to encourage the spirit of giving.

"We are dedicated to putting smiles on children's faces and improving lives across the country," said Pat Finelli, chief marketing officer for Pizza Pizza and Pizza 73. "Our team is thrilled to have seen customers come together to support this great cause, helping us to exceed our fundraising expectations."

The Slices for Smiles Fund was formed in 2007 to provide children with a better quality of life and has raised more than $585,000 in support of children's charities across Canada.
