Like great pizza? Stop by Wilson’s Pizza Shop in Newfane and get rewarded for helping fund research and programs of the WNY Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association. There’s a contest to see which pizzeria can sell the most elephants and Wilson’s is the only one in this end of the county to take up the challenge!
When a customer donates $1 for Alzheimer research and services, they get to add their name, and a tribute to someone else, to a purple paper elephant. The elephant is the symbol of the organization because “an elephant never forgets; people do.” The cut-outs are hanging on the shop wall. As an added incentive to get that wall filled, the Wilson’s are offering a discount coupon for $2 off a large pizza for every elephant purchased, doubling the actual donation for customers. The contest began on August 21 and ends on September 15, and the Wilsons hope they’ll have to give out a lot of discounts.
The shop at 2730 Main Street is a local fixture, serving up pizza, subs, chicken wings, veggie specialties and more. They make a calzone sub, as long as a sub, that’s hearty enough for game days and there are weekly specials and game day packages as well. The Wilsons added a deli to the shop and they sell cold cuts, home-cooked roast beef and cheeses and deli salads. The shop is closed Mondays, open 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Tuesday through Thursday, 11 a.m. to midnight on Friday and Saturday and 4 to 9 p.m. on Sunday. The number is 778-9651.
