Our first-ever fundraising series was so much fun that we had to keep it going for just one more week.
If you haven’t had a slice of the action, here’s your last chance (for real this time) because we’ve partnered with Napolita Pizzeria & Wine Bar in Wilmette for a surprise finale on Wednesday, May 19.
The restaurant will donate 15 percent of nondelivery sales between 4-8 p.m. from its shop at 1126 Central Ave. This is a no-fuss event; you order, you eat and Napolita will automatically collect a portion of your sale for our nonprofit newsroom, The Record North Shore.
Napolita is currently taking reservations for three seating options: indoors, a heated patio and greenhouses. You can also pick-up your order to contribute to the fundraising event.
To place an order, call (224) 215-0305 or place it online here.
The downtown Wilmette restaurant serves Neapolitan-style pizza that is “made fresh and naturally fermented in accordance with the strict standards of the authentic Vera Pizza Napoletana,” according to its website.
The authentic pizzas include more than 10 specialities in both Rossa (red sauce pizza) and Bianca pies (white pizza).
Napolita also offers pasta imported from Napoli, house-made specialty salads and Italian-style desserts, the website adds.
Pizza Pies for Headlines has already ran for four consecutive weeks, rotating between different local businesses in our coverage areas. They were: Grateful Bites, Marco Roma, Lou Malnati’s Wilmette and North Shore Pizza Company.
Thank you to our partner pizzerias and our supporters who have participated in Pizza Pies for Headlines to help us raise some dough for local business and local news.
