Pieology fundraiser to help fight cystic fibrosis

PieologyFundraiser

A Hawaiian pizza is the latest weapon in the fight against cystic fibrosis.

The pie, a creation of a 10-year-old named Harry, is made with red sauce, mozzarella, ham, pineapple and cilantro.

You see, Harry’s friend, Morgan Johnson, 12, is battling the disease.

Pieology Pizzeria is using Harry’s pizza to raise funds to help his friend and other folks in the same situation.

Through June 1, Pieology is donating 15% of all sales of Mo Jo’s Hawaiian Pizza to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.

Another wave of restaurant closures hits

In a sign that the economy still has some recovery to do, we’ve spotted four local restaurants that have closed in recent weeks.
