Press Release – RANCHO SANTA MARGARITA – March 6, 2017 – In the spirit of giving back to the community, John’s Incredible Pizza Company will drive awareness and raise funds for UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospitals, the Bay Area’s Children’s Miracle Network hospitals, through a series of collaborations at its newest location in the NewPark Mall in Newark, Calif.
“At John’s, giving back to the community is embedded into every aspect of our business,” said owner and founder, John Parlet. “Working with UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospitals and seeing the dedication that each and every hospital employee has is inspiring. It makes you want to get up and do something. That’s exactly what we’re going to do – give back to this organization and the community.”
To celebrate the launch of its twelfth location, John’s Incredible Pizza Company will host a two-day private preview for UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospitals families and supporters. Invited guests will receive complimentary admission, which includes an All You Can Eat Buffet, Unlimited Beverages and a $10 FunCard, good for games, rides and attractions. While the celebrations will be free, guests are also encouraged to make a donation online or in-store to benefit UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospitals and will be entered for a chance to win free pizza for a year. John’s Incredible Pizza Company will also donate 20 percent of proceeds from all FunCard Special sales during these private preview days.
In addition to the preview events, John’s Incredible Pizza Company will also be donating birthday parties to UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospitals families to show their support and appreciation. Each party will include the All You Can Eat Buffet, Unlimited Beverages, $15 FunCard, 50 redemption tickets and 2 rides per person; plus a private room, party host, balloons, games, music, personalized centerpiece, gift for the birthday child and a visit from IncrediBear, John’s playful mascot.
“As the safety net hospitals for thousands of children in the Bay Area and beyond, we rely on the generosity of companies like John’s Incredible Pizza Company to fulfill our mission of providing the highest quality care to all kids—regardless of ability to pay,” said Children’s Miracle Network officer, Kelsey Cunningham.
Opening to the public this spring, the 65,000 square-foot location will feature an All You Can Eat Buffet with many items made from scratch. The buffet features 20 varieties of freshly made pizzas, fried chicken, pasta with homemade sauces, a 40+ item salad bar, soups, potato bar, and desserts.
