If you love Buddy’s Pizza’s Detroit-style deep-dish pizzas and help feed those in need, you can say it with pizza.
Buddy’s Pizza’s annual Slice for Life event which raises money for the Capuchin soup kitchen in Detroit is on Monday. This 46th annual paid event invites patrons to enjoy an all-you-can-eat two-topping pizza and salad at one of its 21 locations.
Tickets are $18 for adults and $8 for children (ages 3-9). You can buy tickets at Eventbrite or call 313-579-2100.
“Buddy’s is synonymous with ‘Detroit-Style’, but ‘Detroit-Style’ is so much more than pizza – it’s about our community’s core value of caring for each other,” said the brother Gary Wegner, executive director of Capuchin Soup Kitchen, in a press release. “We are grateful for the longstanding partnership with Buddy’s, as well as the support of the Detroit metropolitan community, as we continue our mission to meet basic needs and address the root causes of poverty and injustice. social.”
Buddy’s Pizza dedicates this day each year to fundraising for Capuchin Soup Kitchen’s community programs. Fundraising began in 1976 when there was only one Buddy’s Pizza location in Six Mile and Conant, its original. Since then, Buddy’s has raised more than $3 million to benefit the organization’s programs that help those in need.
Capuchin programs include supplying its two soup kitchen sites that feed hundreds of people every day, supporting its organic farm, a program for men released from prison, substance abuse programs and after-school programs for children.
“Capuchin Soup Kitchen is Buddy’s Pizza’s longest serving charity partner, and we are honored each year to raise funds and awareness of the important services the organization provides,” said Wes Pikula, Buddy’s Pizza brand manager.
If you can’t dine in, a take-out option is available at all 21 Buddy’s Pizza locations. The take-out option is $18 and includes either a two-topping four-square pizza or a medium antipasto, Greek or house salad.
Buddy’s, the beloved local pizza chain, started in 1946 at the corner of Six Mile and Conant in Detroit. Since then it has come a long way and now has 21 locations. A location recently opened in Okemos, followed by a take-out location in Clarkston.
