SAN DIEGO–Supporting the Tony Hawk Foundation’s efforts to create high-quality, public skateparks in low income communities across the country, Flippin’ Pizza’s four California stores will donate a percentage of October 2010 proceeds to the Tony Hawk Foundation and the building of a new skatepark at the proposed Carlsbad Skatepark, Museum, and Action Arts Center. In preparation for the fundraiser, the neighborhood pizzeria, known for New York pies and slices and ongoing community outreach programs, will provide scratch-off cards to customers throughout the months of September and October. The scratch-off cards will reward customers with free menu offers and the chance to win an autographed Tony Hawk skateboard deck or free pizza for a year. “We’re excited to get behind the Tony Hawk Foundation’s efforts for the third consecutive year,” said Patrick Farley, owner of Flippin’ Pizza. “Every time a community member visits Flippin’ Pizza throughout the month of October, he or she can feel good knowing that a portion of our restaurants’ proceeds is going to a great cause. In addition, we will be offering two free tickets to the Stand up for Skateparks event in Beverly Hills on Sunday, October 17. To win the tickets, community members just need to text “THF” to 90210 by September 30. We will randomly select one winner on October 1.” The local Flippin’ Pizza restaurants in Encinitas, La Costa, Vista and Carlsbad (“Knockout”) will participate in the fundraiser. In the spirit of friendly competition, and in true New York fashion, the stores will vying for bragging rights to see who can dish up the most funds and invite community members to join by eating at their favorite local Flippin’ Pizza location.
