yyc pizza week is pleased to announce a second charity for 2016
YYC Pizza Week is about charity, giving back to our community, supporting our local people and businesses. After a very successful first two years in Calgary, the team sat down and decided to bring on a second charity. Everyone on the team submitted their ideas and suggestions for a second charity and a final decision for 2016 was made.
Please join us in welcoming 100 Men Calgary as our second charity for 2016!!
You can learn more about the work 100 Men Calgary does by checking out either their website or our Charity Page.

A Statement regarding recent events - September 22, 2016
In light of the recent events currently in the news regarding Terry Lo and some incorrect statements in the media, we feel it’s important to let the community know while he was initially involved with YYC Pizza Week in 2014, he has not been affiliated or associated with YYC Pizza Week in its entirety since then.
