If you like pizza, you’ll love this fundraiser for The Birchtree Center! When you enjoy a meal at The Community Oven from 5-9PM on June 10th, a percentage of your purchase will go to support the nonprofit Birchtree Center’s autism programs.

Every purchase that night helps local students with autism–whether you dine in or take out!

The Community Oven’s wood-fired brick oven is centrally located in the restaurant, so you can watch as the pizzas are made and cooked right in front of you.
