On Sunday, February 26, 2017, the first annual Pizza Wars Awards Ceremony was held at Cambiotti’s Tomato Pie Café, the 2017 winning restaurant. As beneficiary of the 2017 Pizza Wars, the Foundation was presented with several checks to support our many initiatives aimed at improving and enhancing the lake experience and environment.
Sponsors Rick Gerry from Affordable Automotive and Dr. Brandon Schmidt from Hopatcong Dental Associates attended the ceremony and personally presented their checks to Donna Macalle-Holly from the Lake Hopatcong Foundation.
“We are happy to be one of the sponsors for this event. As a lifetime resident of the lake, all of the money that goes toward the Lake is a great thing for all of us,” said Rick
“We just moved into the area the summer of 2016, so far, everyone has been very accommodating,” expressed Dr. Schmidt. “We just love the Lake and the People, and are willing to do anything to help our mutual community.”
Donna stated, “We are very appreciative of all of the sponsors and pizzerias that participated, as well as the Hopatcong Lake Regional News for helping to raise funds to help promote the lake and our lake community.”
The Lake Hopatcong Pizza Wars was developed by the Hopatcong Lake Regional News, an organization focused on promoting local news, local community events, and local businesses. The next event they will kick off is the Battle of the Bars, where area bars will show off their best talents. Full details will be announced in early March.
