Kiwanis plans pizzamania benefit for Shore


The Kiwanis Club of Evanston will host its annual Pizzamania benefit for Shore Community Services on Tuesday, Feb. 21, at the new Giordano’s location at 1527 Chicago Ave.

The all-you-can-eat and drink party, running from 5 to 8 p.m., will be serve up several varieties of pizza on Fat Tuesday, the day before the beginning of Lent.

In keeping with the date, each guest will receive colorful Mardi Gras beads to mark the occasion. Pizzamania chair Tom McRaith says that while this Mardi Gras celebration isn’t quite like New Orleans, pizza lovers enjoy it even more.

Tickets can be obtained on the Shore website, by calling 847-982-2030, or by contacting members of the Kiwanis Club of Evanston. Advance tickets are $15 for adults and $6 for children under twelve. Tickets purchased at the door are $17 and $8 respectively.

Shore Community Services assists over 400 children and adults with developmental disabilities. Pizzamania has raised close to $25,000 over the past six years.
