Pizza Nova Raises $2200 for St. John, the Compassionate Mission

TORONTOAug. 30, 2018 /CNW/ – On Monday, August 20th Pizza Nova opened its doors to a new location on 714 Queen St. East. at Broadview Ave. in Toronto. To help celebrate the grand opening and share our spirit of community, Pizza Nova served small cheese or pepperoni pizza for only $2.00 tax included from 11am – 8pm with all proceeds from every pizza sold being donated to St. John the Compassionate Mission, a local mission steps away from the new Pizza Nova location on Queen St.

On Wednesday, August 29th, Pizza Nova, presented St. John the Compassionate Mission with the proceeds at an official cheque presentation ceremony.

Through the support and generosity of the community, the money donated to St. John the Compassionate Mission wouldn’t have been possible without the thousands of Riverside residents and passers-by who came out on August 20th to join in the celebrations of the grand opening and purchased a small pepperoni or cheese pizza for only $2.00. The ever charming Pizza Nova mascot, Leonardough interacted with fans capturing the moment with photos, while children enjoyed having their faces painted, and animal balloons.

Thank you to the community of Riverside in Toronto for helping us celebrate our new Pizza Nova location on Queen St. and supporting St. John the Compassionate Mission!
