PALMDALE – A fundraising event held at the grand opening of the new PizzaRev restaurant in Palmdale last month netted a total of $5,831.11 for the City of Palmdale’s Neighborhood House #3, known as Gabriel’s House.
The “craft your own pizza” restaurant, located at 748 West Rancho Vista Blvd (at the Shops at Rancho Vista Gateway), donated 100% of the proceeds from the opening to Gabriel’s House, a music and performing arts program provided by the City of Palmdale which offers local children the opportunity to develop their creative talents, free of charge.
Guests on PizzaRev’s grand opening day were invited to “pay-what-they-wanted” for a custom-built, personal-sized pizza, with a suggested $8 contribution to benefit Gabriel’s House.
Students who have been taking guitar and Folkorico dance classes at Gabriel’s House were on hand to perform at the grand opening.
“We really appreciate what PizzaRev has done for Gabriel’s House and all the students,” stated Housing Coordinator Terri-Lei Wheeler. “We are so appreciative that PizzaRev shares our commitment of expanding the arts to Palmdale’s youth.”
“PizzaRev is a passionate supporter of the organizations that positively impact the communities where we do business, and Gabriel’s House truly makes a difference in the lives of local children,” said PizzaRev co-founder and COO, Nicholas Eckerman.
