In addition, Organ Stop Pizza will be offering their popular patriotic CD, “Red, White, and Blue – The Music of America” at the discounted rate of $14.00 and will donate $1.00 to both HAV/MVPA for every “Red, White and Blue” CD sold during this promotion. Cash donations will also be accepted, with OSP matching all personal donations up to a total of $5000.
Organ Stop Pizza has been a Valley favorite for more than 40 years. Home to the nation’s largest Wurlitzer pipe organ, the unique pizza restaurant is a favorite entertainment destination for all ages. Along with pizza, OSP offers pasta, appetizers, a salad bar, ice cream, beer/wine and soft drinks. Everything from Bach to rock churns from the professional organists who play to crowds of up to 700 every night. OSP is a cash or check only business so no debit or credit cards are accepted. However there is an ATM is available in the lobby. More info: www.organstoppizza.com
The non-profit, Honoring Arizona’s Veterans, came to light in 2011 to help Arizona’s veterans heal and reintegrate through events and outreach activities. Their premiere recognition event to honor all veterans is the Phoenix Veterans Day Parade. This high profile, special event at 11 a.m. on November 11th is funded and produced by HAV with support from the City of Phoenix. The Phoenix Veterans Day Parade has grown to become the fourth largest attended Veterans Day Parade in the USA. More info:www.
The Military Veterans Parade Association (MVPA) is an all-volunteer non-profit that has been putting on the high profile, special event–East Valley Veterans Parade–since 2006 to honor our community’s military veterans, active military and their families. Their parade has more than 100 entries and is supported by the East Valley community and other organizations. More info: www.evvp.org.
