Dining for Dollars at CPK


Our next Dining for Dollars event will be held at the California Pizza Kitchen in the Brea Mall all day on Monday, December 10th. Present the flyer to your server and CPK will donate 20% of your check to SAM. This includes dine-in, takeout, catering and all beverages.


If we raise over $2,500 in total sales, someone at our school could win a free class pizza party! Students will be asked to write their grade on the flyer when they show it to the server, who will collect them to be tallied up to see which class had the most participation. We hope to see everyone there!
