Saskatchewan Boston Pizza locations raise $60,000 for Camp Easter Seal


Boston Pizza locations across Saskatchewan have partnered with the Saskatchewan Abilities Council to raise more than $60,000 in order to help send Saskatchewan kids with disabilities to summer camp during their 2nd Annual Boston Pizza Day for Camp Easter Seal.

"The continued enthusiasm and commitment of the Boston Pizza franchisees & staff and the Boston Pizza Foundation paired up with staff from the Saskatchewan Abilities Council and community celebrities have resulted in an incredible return for this event. This partnership will help to ensure that children with disabilities will continue to benefit from Camp Easter Seal free of charge," said John Denysek, Regional Director of the Saskatchewan Abilities Council in Yorkton, SK, "Thank-you to all who supported this fundraiser!"

On Wednesday, June 25, guests came from all corners of Saskatchewan to share in the 2nd annual Boston Pizza Day for Camp Easter Seal.

"On behalf of all of the franchisees in the province, we would like to thank all of our staff for the efforts they put into the day, and, mostly, we would like to thank our guests for the support they gave us and Camp Easter Seal. We are pleased to be able to contribute in a little way towards the success of Camp Easter Seal," said Saskatchewan Boston Pizza Franchisee, Jim Werschler.

In addition to these fundraisers, this year, an on-line auction was added to the agenda in order to assist with fundraising and event exposure across the province. Hodgins Auctioneers donated their services to increase the funding by a further $6,500.

Funds collected from the Boston Pizza Day for Camp Easter Seal, Camp Cards and the online auction have been donated to Camp Easter Seal through the Boston Pizza Foundation, which raises funds for a variety of local, regional, and national charities across Canada.

"I just want to say a big congratulations and a heartfelt thank-you to all our Saskatchewan and Lloydminster Boston Pizza franchisees. Most importantly, the generosity of guests across Saskatchewan has truly had a positive impact on the summer and lives of some very special children and young people, who, without this support, may never had a chance to attend summer camp!" said Boston Pizza Foundation Executive Director, Cheryl Treliving. "Our Saskatchewan and Lloydminster franchisees truly showed the heart of the Boston Pizza brand and for that we are very proud."
