Best-ever Donations for San Diego Humane Society (RECAP)

dsc_0039We took PFG on the road again—and it paid off big time!

Our 2nd Annual Pizza for Good Party in support of San Diego Humane Society was a huge hit—great attendance and a record haul of nearly $1,500.

In addition to the many individual donations, we had a ton of support from the local community to make this record haul happen.

Dang Brother Pizza dough—excellent!

Dang Brother Pizza was our “dough-nation” sponsor. I’ve worked with a ton of dough over roughly 15 years as a pizza chef, and theirs was some of the best I’ve ever used. We paid exactly $0.00 for the base element of our creative pies, which helped us spend more money on toppings. Thanks guys!

Catalina Offshore Products donated use of a mobile Italia Mobile Pizza Oven by Camp Chef, not to mention supplying us with a Hawaiian fish called Opah. The fish formed the basis of our first-ever “San Diego Fish Taco,” and unusual and yummy pie that got rave reviews. Great thanks to Tommy Gomes (see below) for his support.

Important to be clear about our mission: supporting the great work of the San Diego Humane Society—in business since 1880. They work to reduce euthanasia of otherwise healthy animals, and by July 2015 reduced the number down to zero. (read the full history here)

MAKE SURE to patronize these businesses, because they’ve shown their support for our effort and, indirectly, SDHS. So, book a Dang Brother event or go online and get some amazing, sushi-grade fish and have it delivered from Catalina. With a name like that how could you go wrong?

With many, many thanks to all attendees, sponsors and volunteers—and of course our hosts, Wayne, Ed—Triscuit and I are looking forward to doing it all again in 2017! Mark your calendars now. ❏
