Optimist Club hosts Slice of Life fundraiser

I see a lot of different fund raising activities for a lot of different purposes.  I really like this one for its simplicity and branding.  The Slice of Life, hosted by the Optimist Club of West Knoxville, benefits the East Tennessee Children's Hospital and Childhood Cancer Research through a pizza tasting party.  Each ticket purchased allows the ticketholder to sample and enjoy pizza.  Who doesn't enjoy pizza?

According to the organizers, at least six pizza vendors are signed on to participate.  The pizza tasters will also get the opportunity to vote for their favorite.

Tickets are reasonably priced at $10 for children 13 and over and adults; $5 for children 4 to 12; or a family pack (four or more) for $20.  Children 3 and under will be given free cheese pizza slices. 

The event will take place on Thursday, September 17, 6:00 to 8:00 pm, in the Farragut High School Commons.

Optimist International international encourages Optimist Clubs to conduct projects that benefit Childhood Cancer research.  The international organization has donated almost $1 million to John Hopkins University.  All proceeds from the Optimist Club of  West Knoxville's Slice of Life pizza party will benefit the East Tennessee Children's Hospital and Childhood Cancer Research Institute.
