Pizza Factory Fundraiser To Help Local “Non-Essential” Businesses
The Pizza Factory has announced a special fundraiser to help local businesses that have been unable to open because they have been deemed non-essential at this time.
Brian and Kim Lombardi, owners of the Phelan Pizza Factory in a letter to the community, want to help keep their town the same as it was before “the storm” as they put it. “We are coming to you from the bottom of our hearts. Through this whole storm, you have been so loyal, gracious, and understanding as we have had to navigate this new way of doing business.” Brian and Kim have been and continue to be huge supporters of their community. “As we are ever so grateful, we continue to look around our small town and see so many closed businesses, and our hearts go out to them,” they stated in their letter.
On Tuesday, May 19, 2020, and Wednesday, May 20, 2020, between the hours of 3:00 pm and 8:00 pm the Pizza Factory will donate 40% of sales to seven businesses that have been closed due to state and county health order restrictions. These businesses are, on Tuesday, Earl Knight Salon, Tanya’s Dance Studio, JD’s T-Bird, and High Desert Gymnastics. On Wednesday, the businesses supported are Motocicli Da Pista, Classic Antiques & Vintage, and Big Rock Inn. The owners or representatives of these businesses will be running orders out to patrons for curbside pick-up during their scheduled day. UPDATE: A Wild Hair has been added to the Wednesday lineup.
You can help in one of four ways. First, you can buy lunch or dinner on one or both days. Secondly, you can buy a gift card or certificate that will be sold by the owners or representatives on the day they are scheduled to participate. Thirdly, you can “tip” the runners with a donation to their business, and lastly, you can drive by and honk to show your support or better yet wave a runner over to buy a gift card or certificate or donate to them.
Brian and Kim and the Pizza Factory Family are encouraging everyone to spread the word to make this a successful event for everyone involved. For more information and updates, be sure to check out the Pizza Factory Facebook page.
