Maria Rogers and Wendy Gallal are gearing up to open
Padua Pasta Makers in downtown Upland and are in the process of raising funds for the business via Kickstarter. Their goal is to raise $20,000 to help complete construction and pay for start-up costs. They have until July 30.
The Italian deli will specialize in fresh pasta and ravioli made from scratch daily.
Perks for donors range from a hearty ‘thank you’ for a $10 donation to a full day of making pasta, plus dinner for four, a goodie bag and a signature slotted spoon for a $1,000 donation.

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.
