WESTFIELD, NJ — The Westfield Area YMCA will host its third annual Pizza Palooza on Sunday, March 4, from noon until 1:30 p.m in the gym of its main facility at 220 Clark Street. 

Participants can taste their way through participating Westfield, Garwood and Mountainside pizzerias and vote for their favorite. Participating restaurants will include Buona Pizza, Casa di Pizza, Ferraro’s, Gennaro’s, Mama’s, Outta Hand Pizza, Roma Pizza and Rudy’s. Everyone ages 4 and up will be able to vote.

“This is our third annual Pizza Palooza Pizza tasting contest. We had a sold out  event last year,” organizer Sharon London said. “We are fortunate to have so many pizza restaurants in our area.  Our pizza owners donate their time and their delicious pizza.”

A $12 contribution for adults and children ages 4+ will benefit the Y’s Annual Support Campaign, which ensures that no one who is experiencing a bona fide financial hardship and lives or works in Westfield, Cranford, Garwood or Mountainside is turned away for inability to pay for Y programs or memberships. The majority of awards enable participation in the Y’s early learning, school age and summer day camp programs.

Children ages 3 and under are free. Online registration is available at www.westfieldynj.org, call 908-301-9622 or register in person. Advance registration is strongly recommended.
