Punxsy Pizza & Prevention Scheduled for Saturday

PUNXSUTAWNEY, Pa. — Punxsy Pizza’s 16th Annual Pizza & Prevention will be held on Saturday, October 14.

The annual event, held from 11:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m., is designed to promote disaster prevention and introduce the community to their firefighters.

Punxsy Pizza donates 100 percent of the day’s profits to the Punxsutawney Fire Department. Over the last few years, the event raised a total of more than $90,000.00 for the department and has raised more than $350,000.00 since it began in 2002.

Firefighters will make and deliver pizzas to those who order.

The special of the event is the Chief, an 18-slice pepperoni pizza for $9.11.

Firefighters will check smoke detectors in homes where they deliver pizzas. For homes without smoke detectors, firemen will provide a free one with batteries.

It is sponsored by the Punxsutawney Fraternal Order of Eagles and Nationwide, the Kengersky Agency.

Pizzas may also be picked up, and coupon cards will be available for use at a later date.
