Celebrities and Rotarians will be serving up the pizza and drinks. Evanton's City Manager Wally Bobkiewicz, Nineth Ward Alderman Coleen Burrus and Sixth Ward Alderman Mark Tendam have signed on. Stay tuned for more details.

PizzaFest is just one of the ways Evanston Rotary and it's charitable fund raises money to support youth-focused projects and non-profits in Evanston. This year's beneficiaries include Y.O.U. of Evanston, First United Methodist Church, Childcare Network and McGaw YMCA.

Big thanks to the Rotarians organizing this event--Pam Johnson, Bernice Valantinas, Kelly Gilbert, Maggie Noonan, Joe Brownlee and Herbert Rivero--and all those selling tickets, publicizing it, plus serving and helping out on the May 3.
Full disclosure: My husband Joel Lerner and I are Rotarians. We joined a year ago and are enjoying it. Our club includes some of the most substantial, funny, talented, community-oriented people we've ever met.
