SOMERVILLE, NJ - The Van Derveer Fifth Grade Band will benefit from each slice of pizza sold on Tuesday, Dec. 10th when the flyer accompanying this story is presented at California Pizza Kitchen at the Bridgewater Commons Mall.

Each year the band, accompanied by parents and teachers, travels to the Prudential Arena in Newark to perform in between periods of a New Jersey Devils hockey game. Funds raised through this promotion will help cover the expense of transportation to the arena and back, and other costs, according to Christine Wojewoda, band director.

The band will receive 20 percent of the in-store, take out, or online purchase price, including food and beverage purchased between 11 a.m. and 10 p.m. through the "Pizza with a Purpose" program.

The word "fundraiser" must appear on the receipt for the band to receive credit. Credit for gratuities and tax are not included in the donation.
