This Week at the EYC July 4-11

Before we get to this week’s activities at the EYC, ask yourself: “Am I hungry for great pizza?”

The Wild Tomato restaurant in Fish Creek will donate $1 to the EYC for every one of its “Donation Creation” pizzas sold in the whole month of July!  This pizza features wood-fire roasted chicken; green and red peppers; caramelized onions; romano, asiago, parmesan and goat cheeses; sun-dried tomato and pepperoni sauce; and is drizzled with 25-year-old balsamic vinegar.  A big thank-you to Wild Tomato owners Britt and Sara Unkefer, parent of EYC Student member Levi Unkefer.
