Pizza Wars 3: The Official Numbers

It’s been six days since Pizza Wars 3 concluded. The winner for 2013, Village Inn, had some strong competitors. See additional results here.

Pizza Wars 3 almost doubled their 2012 donations of $4,300 on Jan. 18. While it was initially thought that the group raised close to $10,000, the final number was actually closer to about $8,500, according to District 219 Education Foundation board member Alyse Burman.

While Village Inn took home first place honors, Father & Son Italian Kitchen’s dessert pizza took home second place. Their “pizza” had blueberries and cranberries over toffee streusel and a sweet cream cheese base. It was delicious.  

Coming in third place was Lincolnwood’s Lou Malnati’s Pizza  and Pequod’s coming in a very close fourth place.

The proceeds raised from Pizza Wars 3 will benefit the student’s at District 219 in the form of calculators, refurbished computers, AP testing, college entrance exams and community college scholarships, according to Burman. The Education Foundation’s primary goal is to help students by providing additional resources outside the scope of the regular district budget.

How about you proof read your article before you publish it. The pizza lace that won is 'Village Inn' not Village in'
