Young pizzaleros for charity

One of Blaine’s major youth employers is helping kids who work there get into the holiday spirit. “With the great group of kids we have working here we wanted to do something,” said Mike Harward, manager of the Blaine Little Caesar’s restaurant. “I’ve really left it up to them with the hope the youth who work for us learn about giving back to their community.”

Blaine high school students who work at Little Caesars have decided to throw a party at the Blender youth center to raise food and funds for needy families in Blaine and Birch Bay, Harward said. Admission to the November 22 event will cost $3, or $1.50 if you bring a can of food for the Blaine food bank. Admission will include a free slice of pizza, courtesy of Little Caesar’s and performances by two local bands – Lifetime Warranty and Serpents Wang. The dance runs from 7:30 to 10:30 p.m.

Harward said the Blaine restaurant will match every dollar raised. “We’re very big on giving back to the community,” he said. Through the Birch Bay chamber of commerce the funds raised will go to buy holiday gifts for needy families in that community, and on the Blaine side funds will go to the Giving Tree program. Food collected will go to the Blaine food bank. ..
