Art from Ashes and Pizzeria Locale is a Match Made in Denver

They also have sponsored Art from Ashes at some of our signature events, including the annual Running of the Gays in support of LGBTQIA youth.

Pizzeria Locale have yet again proven their commitment to our mission and acknowledged our struggle as a small agency during this crisis by implementing a month-long promotion of our work.

Because October is National Pizza Month, Pizzeria Locale celebrated by printing 33,000 boxes displaying our Phoenix Rising logo and an AfA youth poem on their pizza box. Get your hands on one (containing their amazing pies!) at any of their four locations. They will continue to use the Art from Ashes pizza boxes through the month of October and will be giving us special shout outs every Friday on social media [Facebook and Instagram], so be sure to follow Pizzeria Locale (and us!) on social media @pizzerialocale and snap a photo to share @afaphoenix.

On top of that (see what we did there?) during the entire day on October 5 Pizzeria Locale donated 33% of all pizza sales to support AfA’s creative youth empowerment programming. We are thrilled to report that pie eaters helped us raise a total of $3,622!

Thanks to everyone at Pizzeria Locale for your continued support of our youth! We appreciate being supported by people and businesses from our very own community.
