- LOUIS PUBLIC LIBRARY AND PI PIZZERIA ANNOUNCE RESULTS FROM LIMITED EDITION “THE BOOKMARK” PIZZA PROMOTION IN CELEBRATION OF LIBRARY’S 150TH ANNIVERSARY
St. Louis, MO… The St. Louis Public Library and Pi Pizzeria are proud to announce the results from the limited edition “The Bookmark” Pizza promotion that occurred between October 1, 2015, and December 31, 2015.
Pi Pizzeria Owner Chris Sommers and Executive Chef Cary McDowellpresented a check to Waller McGuire, Executive Director of the St. Louis Public Library, on Tuesday, February 9, at Pi Pizzeria, Mercantile Exchange, 610 Washington Ave., at 10 a.m.
“Pi is so honored to have been chosen to help celebrate the Library’s 150thanniversary,” McDowell said. “We received an incredible amount of positive feedback, as the public was excited to eat such an ‘unconventional’ pizza and also be a good steward for the cause. We are honored to donate 15 percent of the sales from ‘The Bookmark’ Pizzas to the Library, which totals $2,390.40.”
McDowell added, “‘The Bookmark’ was created especially for the Library and dedicated to all the people in our lives who love books.”
“The Bookmark” started with Pi’s signature vegan thin crust, whole milk mozzarella and ricotta cheeses, and vegetables found fresh at local markets. Once baked, “The Bookmark” pizza was drizzled with Mike’s Hot Honey, chili pepper-infused honey.
