Jim Treliving of CBC’s Dragons’ Den and Chairman of Boston Pizza International recently presented a $42,846.47 cheque on behalf of the Saskatchewan Boston Pizza Franchisees and the Boston Pizza Foundation to the Saskatchewan Abilities Council for the dollars raised from Saskatchewan’s first annual Boston Pizza Day for Camp Easter Seal. “I’m thrilled to be able to recognize the incredible efforts of our guests and franchisees in Saskatchewan to raise money for a very worthy cause,” said Jim Treliving, Chairman of Boston Pizza International. “Thanks to their generosity and all of the hard work of our stores and staff, we’re giving a lot of kids facing challenges the opportunity to experience summer camp.”
All Saskatchewan Boston Pizza Restaurants, BP’s Lounges and the Saskatchewan Abilities Council came together to raise funds and awareness for Camp Easter Seal at the 1st annual Boston Pizza Day for Camp Easter Seal, in June. Our guests came in for lunch, dinner and drinks with family and friends at all Boston Pizza restaurants in Saskatchewan. The Franchisees donated 10% of total net sales that day to Camp Easter Seal through the Boston Pizza Foundation.
