Special Olympics NC, Cici's Pizza will team up for fundraiser

Posted: Updated:
GREENVILLE, N.C. -

Do you like pizza? Do you like raising money for a good cause?

Maybe you should have dinner at the Cici's Pizza in Greenville Tuesday night.

Cici's is partnering with Special Olympics North Carolina.

At the Cici's on Greenville Boulevard, you can buy a Special Olympics logo and tape it to a Greenville Police car. The goal is to cover the entire car from headlight to taillight.

"North Carolina has one of the largest Special Olympics programs in the world. We have more than 38,000 Special Olympics athletes. And these fundraisers that we do through the law enforcement torch run help to raise funds to provide athletic opportunity and equipment and training for our athletes statewide," said Capt. Rob Williams, Greenville Ppolice)

All the money raised in selling the Special Olympics logos will go to the organization. But Cici's will also donate 10-percent of tonight's pizza sales to the Special Olympics.
