Kylie’s Chicago Pizza “Breast Friends” Fundraiser Wednesday

June 22nd, 2010 by master

Eat in or carry out from Kylie’s Chicago Pizza (3601 Fremont Ave. N. #101) Wednesday, and 50 percent of the day’s sales will go toward a group participating in the Susan G. Komen 3 Day walk.

Owner Lance Brough said, “A couple of months ago I was approached by some regular customers about supporting their participation in the Susan G. Komen 3 day walk. I suggested we could do what we are doing tomorrow, where we have a day when we donate a portion of the sales to their fundraising.”

Brough said the customers, who live in Queen Anne, have been coming to the restaurant since it opened seven months ago.

“It was just something I was looking to do to support the community, we have done few other things, giving away pizzas and gift certificates to Fremont events, but this was the first thing that was participation driven,” said Brough, whose mother is a breast cancer survivor. “We are a new, small restaurant but we will be doing it for all sales tomorrow, so dine in or pick up, 50% of the money will be going to research a cure for breast cancer.”
