An Awesome Pizza Experience At Slice Out Hunger- NYC

Screen Shot 2013-10-06 at 11.46.39 PMA couple of days ago I wrote about an event that Kim, Lucas and I would be attending- Slice Out Hunger, NYC’s biggest pizza party for a good cause. 100% of the proceeds go to the Food Bank of New York City. Find out how one $1 slice of pizza become 12.5 meals in my previous post here.

Slice Out Hunger was created by Scott Wiener and is now in its fifth year. Scott is best known for his popular Pizza Tours around NYC. I took his pizza bus tour back in May and highly recommend taking one on a visit to NY or even if you live here.

The event was held last night and we had a great time & ate a lot of pizza! I hope to be able to attend every year as long as it continues to take place.

We arrived early so that we would get inside quickly once the doors opened. The event was scheduled to start at 6:00 so we arrived around 4:30. We figured that it was better to wait before the event rather than while it was going on, possibly missing out on the pizza.

Slice Out Hunger- NYC’s Biggest Pizza Party For A Good Cause

Screen Shot 2013-10-06 at 11.46.39 PMHow would you like to eat pizza from some great pizzerias around NYC for $1 per slice with all proceeds going to a great cause?

Here is some info:

Included in my ticket to the NY Trav Fest (back in April) was a spot on Scott’s Pizza Tours. The tour was a blast and we got to eat a lot of pizza at some great places and also learned quite a bit from Scott, our pizza obsessed guide.

During the tour Scott mentioned a charity event that he started a few years back called Slice Out Hunger. I kept the event in mind and hoped that we would be home when it came up.

United Airlines 10 Million Charity Miles Giveaway

United Airlines is donating 10 million miles to charity this holiday season.

How can we help? Every day you can vote for your favorite charity. The more votes your charity gets, the more miles they will receive during this giveaway. (All participating charities will receive at least 25,000 miles.)

I voted to support the Wounded Warrior Project. On some of the 5Ks I have ran, WWP was the charity that benefited from the funds raised. They had a table set up at the O’Hare Runway Run. I got to chat with some of the volunteers and learned a bit more about their cause.

According to the 10 Million Miles site:

Wounded Warrior Project (WWP) honors and empowers military personnel who incurred service-connected wounds, injuries, or illnesses on or after September 11, 2001. Today, through mind, body, educational, and economical empowerment programs, WWP assists wounded service members and their families as they transition to a successful, well-adjusted life.

Charity Miles will help Wounded Warrior Project by providing travel for wounded military personnel, families, and staff for program events and support services.
