Boston Pizza and Sign of Hope team up to fund counselling

Sign of Hope is once again teaming up with Boston Pizza to host the Boston Hope Party and help fund counseling in the city.

Sign of Hope is once again teaming up with Boston Pizza to host the Boston Hope Party and help fund counseling in the city.

Sign of Hope is a non-profit organization held thorough Catholic Social Services. “We rely on a lot of government funding for our ministries (programs),” said co-ordinator Sheila Cole.

However, the government is not able to fund everything the organization needs, which is where fundraisers such as the Boston Hope Party comes into play.

The Boston Hope Party will be held at the Wetaskiwin Boston Pizza from 11 a.m. to closing time, Nov. 19. “The volunteers will be selling paper slices of hope,” said Cole.

Small slices will cost $2 and $20 for the large ones. From the event, 10 per cent of all sales, 20 per cent of pizza sales and 100 per cent of tips will be given to the Sign of Hope campaign.

“It’s one of our biggest fundraisers,” said Cole.

Cole says volunteers are needed to help serve pizza and assist the servers, Mayor Bill Elliot is already on board and Cole is hoping for some more council representation. “We encourage people to come down to have a meal or volunteer.”

Sign of Hope operates much of its fundraising efforts from September to December. “We’re certainly in full gear,” said Cole.

The Boston Pizza Party has been a part of the Wetaskiwin community since 2001 and Sign of Hope has been operating in the city for almost 30 years.
