PHOENIX— Make-A-Wish has partnered with WisePies Pizza, an Albuquerque, NM-based, minority-owned and female-led company. The partnership is dedicated to funding more wishes for children with critical illness through the sales dessert pizzas this holiday season.
“WisePies Pizza is humbled and honored to offer a limited-edition dessert pizza supporting the Make-A-Wish efforts to grant more wishes to children experiencing critical illness. The goal of this partnership is to generate community involvement through the consumer purchase of a WishPie that allows more wishes to be granted directly to these children with critical illnesses, leading to more positive outcomes,” said Season Chavez, president of WiseChoice Foods. “My brother was granted a wish when he was 12-years old while fighting a rare form of cancer. I know firsthand the positive emotional and physical impact a wish can have on a child and their entire support system including family, friends and their medical team.”
The stone-fired pizza is infused with a traditional cinnamon crust, cinnamon-sugar sauce and diced gala apples. A vanilla icing packet is also included to drizzle on top of pizza as desired.
One dollar from each dessert pizza sold during Nov. 1 and Dec. 24 will be donated to Make-A-Wish to help grant children’s wishes during the holiday season.
“We hope WishPies become a new favorite holiday tradition for families across the United States,” said Richard K. Davis, president and CEO, Make-A-Wish America. “Partnerships like the one with WisePies allow families to deliver hope and healing to wish kids and their families during the holiday season in an accessible and fun way.”
The Cinnamon Apple Drizzle Dessert Pizza by WisePies Pizza will be sold exclusively at Walmart stores nationwide for a suggested retail price of $6.98 while supplies last.
