Approximately 500 guests attended Top Pizza Taste of Elmhurst 2017 on April 27th and enjoyed selections from nine very generous local pizzerias.

"Thank you to all of our spectacular pizzerias for participating in our light-hearted competition and donating your time, energy and pies to this event," said Angie Kapotas, Foundation Director and Event Chair. "You are all winners for helping us raise  $6,000 that will benefit Elmhurst Public School students."

The fun, family-friendly event was made great by the help of many hands. Student musicians, Alex Stezowski and Jack Pals, showcased their talent and entertained guests with  acoustic guitar and the accordian. Delicious desserts were available for purchase created by Cheryl Spencer and the York Cafeteria team. Cookies kindly donated by Courageous Cupcakes were also for sale.

Guests had the opportunity to purchase raffle tickets for terrific prizes donated by many of our local businesses: Enzee Boutique, Dr. Doshi Orthodontics, York Theatre, Efthimia Salon, Huntington Learning Center, and Hazyl Boutique. Much appreciation goes to all of the York NHS students that volunteered to set-up, serve pizza, clean tables,sell desserts and act as our very friendly Pizza Mascot.  The York Alumni Association also added some Duke spirit with their lively table of spiritwear.

The Top Pizza event comes on the heels of a very successful March Gala which raised $100,000 that will go along way in supporting Foundation programs.

"It is a real thrill to host two successful fundraising events within a two month period that offer such a variety of experiences for our community, " comments Lisa Fanelli, Foundation Executive Director,  "We appreciate the support and are fortunate to live in a community that truly values education."
