Mia’s Pizza and Eats Hosts Family Events, Giveaways, and Specials in October
CUMMING, GA, September 28, 2011 – Mia’s will host various events throughout the month of October the family is sure to enjoy. October is National Pizza Month, so in honor of this special occasion, Mia’s will give away gift certificates, sponsor a food drive and art contest, and host a family fun night. There will also be weekly pizza specials and a great “treat” for Halloween.
Week one promises to be a fun and rewarding time. On Saturday, October 1st, the first thirty customers will receive a gift certificate for a free slice of pizza on their next visit. During the first week, October 1-8, Mia’s will sponsor a food drive to promote a local charity, Food for Thought. Customers who bring in two non-perishable food items for the collection bin will receive 10% off their dine-in bill. To find out more about how to support Food for Thought, go to www.fftpinc.org
“Food for Thought is one of those organizations that makes it easy to give back to the community,” says co-owner, Clori Rose-Geiger, “During these hard economic times, we feel it’s especially important to do something meaningful to support those in need. Since we’re in the business of food, we felt it the logical step to sponsor a charity focused on feeding the hungry. We also love the Food for Thought concept, and we think everyone should join their cause.”
The month will close with a Pizza Box Art Contest, a Family Night, and Halloween festivities. Pizza Box Art Contest entries are due October 24th by 4pm; winners will be announced October 30. The contest has two age categories, and prizes include a pizza party for the elementary winner and a pizza a month for a year for the middle/high winner.
