Just Dew It
Crew members at Dewey’s Pizza must have one heck of a to-
dew list. Dewey’s employees in Missouri and Ohio give back
to their communities through Dewmore, a
nonprofit collaborative supporting various
hometown causes. Dewey’s “Take a Class
Behind the Glass” pizza making classes are
big moneymakers, with the Miamisburg,
Ohio, DewCrew last month raising $2,500 for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, while
the Hanley Hills, Missouri, store presented a check for $2,800 to the Animal Protective
Association of Missouri. In other cities, the Cincinnati DewCrew helped landscape the
city’s Geier Esplanade park and the community garden at the Cincinnati Zoo. And a St.
Louis store dispatched a dozen staffers to walk and play with the animals at the Stray
Rescue of St. Louis animal shelter.
Through Dewey’s Pizza Dewmore initiative, employees act
as the chain’s goodwill ambassadors, raising funds for local
charities through pizza classes and taking part in community
cleanup and beautification events.
Don’t Let Your Wine Menu Go Stale
Wine lovers like to try new varieties, so keep your wine menu fresh and
interesting. It’s always good to keep a mix of whites and reds, suggests
consultant John Juergens of Vin-Test in Oxford, Mississippi, but red wines,
which pair well with tomato-based sauces, are your best bet.
Quick Tip #2
She Fights Like a Girl—
Raven Guidry has been grappling with the same problem for years:
trying to earn acceptance in the male-dominated world of wrestling. Fortunately, the recent Acadiana High School graduate has a
secret weapon: the support of hometown pizzeria Dean-O’s Pizza in
Lafayette, Louisiana. For the second straight year, Dean-O’s used its
civic-minded Spirit Night promo to raise funds to send Guidry, a
2015 All-American wrestler, to compete in the sport’s national tournament. This year’s promotion, which raised $350, also drew UFC
star Dustin Poirier, who signed autographs at a Dean-O’s location
in Bertrand, Louisiana.
Dean-O’s has helped raise money to send high school wrestler Raven Guidry to national
competitions two years in a row. Guidry will wrestle for Oklahoma City University in the fall
and is only the second female wrestler in Louisiana history to earn a college scholarship.
