Enjoying a pizza today will help a local charity.

Cops For Kids and Boston Pizza will again join forces to raise funds for local kids in need on October 27.

Tickets for the one-day fundraiser can be purchased for $20 at participating Boston Pizza locations with $10 going directly to Cops For Kids.  Also, $4 from every kid’s meal bought will go towards Cops For Kids.

Miranda LeBlanc, one of the managers at the Fernie Boston Pizza, said it is the first year the Fernie restaurant has participated.

Besides Fernie, the event is being held at Boston Pizza restaurants in Kelowna, Kamloops, Castlegar, Westbank, Salmon Arm, Penticton, Cranbrook, Merritt and Vernon.

“We are thrilled about our partnership with Boston Pizza. It is a great way for us to raise awareness and funds for Cops for Kids and the work we do in the community.” said Gail Harrison, president of Cops for Kids.

“This year, we are hoping to raise more than $10,000 through the sale of tickets as well as through a silent auction and other onsite fundraising initiatives.”

Cops for Kids Charitable Foundation raises funds and awareness year round to help support children who reside in the southern Interior that struggle with mental, physical or emotional crisis.

During the past 10 years, Cops for Kids has raised more than $1.7 million to support these children.
