Madhouse Pizza and lots of hungry customers, helped to ensure a popular fundraiser continued this holiday season.
Unable to hold the Sockhop dance event because of the COVID-19 pandemic, Morgan and Catherine McDonough received support from their employer, Madhouse Pizza in Tsawwassen, owned by Dave and Missy Haller, who offered up free personal turkey pizzas (turkey, stuffing, gravy and cranberries) on Christmas Day between 3 and 7 p.m.
All donations will be given to the Lookout Society at Al Mitchell place to buy socks for the homeless in support of Morgan’s annual Sock Charity.
Morgan and Catherine’s mom Ruve, along with dad Neal, joined in on the fun, dressing up and helped to promote the event inside and outside the restaurant in Tsawwassen.
Ruve reported that almost $1,000 was raised in donations and 100 pairs of socks were also donation.
“We’re going to take that money and buy socks for the Lookout Society,” said Ruve. “Some people just came in and donated and didn’t even take their pizza. Others were really in need of a pizza and just took the pizza. Both were accepted and very appreciated.”
