According to Pizzeria Piccola’s Web site, www.pizzeriapiccola.com, “As a part of a wonderful community that has been so supportive of us and of our sister restaurant, Ristorante Bartolotta, we are very excited to announce “Society Sundays.” On at least two Sundays a month, we are opening our doors to community organizations which need to raise money through fundraisers. Our first Society Sunday hosted the marching band from Wauwatosa East. They provided us with 10 volunteers, and in five hours raised $700.” Visit the restaurant’s Web site for more information and to see a menu.
WAAGR has taken part in this fundraising opportunity many times since 2006 and has been very appreciative of the response the group has received at the restaurant. The organization even brings a Golden along to meet and greet the patrons.
“Come and enjoy a fantastic meal while helping the golden retrievers rescued by WAAGR,” said WAAGR President Craig Cwiklowski. “WAAGR volunteers enjoy participating in this event and the restaurants’ patrons have been so supportive of our efforts through the years. We rely solely on donations to help fulfill our mission and in 2009, we helped more than 160 Goldens and Golden mixes. We thank everyone who has attended in the past and we hope to see you again.”
