Benefit night at Flatbread Pizza a success! (6/1/2014)

posted in: News | 0

What an amazing community-building event at Flatbread Pizza in Davis Square on Tuesday night, May 27, 2014! From our benefit event, Friends of CRLS raised $1,100 from the pizza sales and raffle. We could not have raised these funds without our alumni and supporters, and of course the generosity of The Flatbread Company.

The flatbread pizzas were delicious. Our alumni, supporters, and guests were excited to participate in our 2nd annual benefit night at Flatbread. Some of our guests chose to bowl, while others tried their luck with our raffle — with prizes donated by alumni, parents, and local businesses, and alumni took the opportunity to network with one another. The benefit night was truly an evening to remember.

Friends of CRLS would like to thank Flatbread Pizza, and our generous raffle donors, supporters, and alumni for supporting us with our event. The funds raised from our benefit night will go towards furthering our current and future initiatives for students, faculty, and alumni.

Many thanks to our Raffle Donors!
