Grimaldi’s Pizzeria will partner with Lowcountry Lab Rescue on June 29 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. for their inaugural adoption event on behalf of the Charleston no-kill animal welfare organization.
Lowcountry Lab Rescue depends on community support to save the lives of hundreds of dogs each year. Grimaldi’s Pizzeria will provide each person who completes paperwork for the dog adoption process at the event and then finalizes adoption with a $50 gift certificate to celebrate his or her new “slice of puppy love.” The event will take place at Mount Pleasant Towne Center on the patio outside Grimaldi’s Pizzeria.
Alan Willett, Grimaldi’s general manager, has offered that anyone who drops off a donation of bedding, stainless steel bowls, blankets, dog toys or a cash donation during the week prior to the event will receive a Grimaldi’s $5 gift card.
On the day of the event, he and his staff will provide free mini pizza bites and cannoli tastings while visitors mix and mingle with the pups.
“Grimaldi’s Pizzeria has a long-standing tradition of participating in community events centered on the protection of animals,” said Willett. “Our goal is to help save the lives of as many dogs as we can.”
Grimaldi’s Pizzeria is famous for their award-winning hand-tossed, coal-fired brick oven pizzas and calzones, fresh salads and delicious desserts. For more information, visit www.grimaldispizzeria.com.
