View details of Pizza for the Homeless 2008
Pizza for the Homeless is a charity event hosted by eyeBLINK. Started in 2006-2007 season, Pizza for the Homeless aims to bring happiness to people who depend on homeless shelters for sustenance. The guests at homeless shelters are given a pizza party and eyeBLINK also provides musical entertainment to create a truly joyful ambience!
In June 18-22, 2007, eyeBLINK partnered with Pizza Hut that provided one XL pizza free for each one bought. The result was 5 Days, 5 Shelters, 5,000 pizza slices feeding 2000 people in NYC! Our friends and supporters of eyeBLINK donated money as well to create an environment that was full of happiness and joy! Volunteer musicians enhanced the ambience for the guests eating their pizza and volunteer photographers captured these moments forever.
Why donate? We all have many luxuries in life. For lots of people who eat at homeless shelters, a pizza party is an extremely special occasion. It brightens up days, brings smiles and tears of happiness. We at eyeBLINK are committed to giving back to our community. Join us today!
