Hunt Brothers® Pizza Donates $7,300 to the Middle Tennessee Marine Toys for Tots Foundation

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Dec. 21, 2015) – Hunt Brothers® Pizza recently presented the local Middle Tennessee chapter of the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation with a donation of $7,300 in honor of their 7,300 retailer locations. Funds were raised during the company’s inaugural Christmas Coloring Contest.

The contest, which ran from November 30 through December 20, invited consumers to color in the graphics on the front and back of the limited edition Hunt Brothers Pizza Christmas pizza boxes and submit a photo of their artwork online for entry into the contest. For each picture submitted, the company pledged to make a donation to Toys for Tots. Thanks to the overwhelming support received from families nationwide, Hunt Brothers Pizza was able to honor their commitment with a donation right in time for Christmas.

Additionally, each submission counted as an entry into a random drawing for a $500 prize. Hunt Brothers Pizza is proud to announce the winner, Carissa Scott of DeQuincy, Louisiana. “It is a blessing to witness all of our fans come together to support less-fortunate children through the Toys for Tots Foundation,” said Keith Solsvig, vice president of marketing for Hunt Brothers Pizza. “On behalf of Hunt Brothers Pizza, we also congratulate Carissa and her family for winning the prize and thank all participants for taking the time to share their colorings. We received a lot of creative artwork, and enjoyed each one!”

The proceeds of the Christmas Coloring Contest donated to the Middle Tennessee Toys for Tots Foundation will be used to purchase toys for all age groups in Middle Tennessee counties.
