Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) October 02, 2012
This Wednesday, October 3rd, Beverly Hills’s famed Mulberry Street Pizzeria will celebrate its 20th anniversary with Los Angeles’ biggest pizza party. To thank the local community for all their support over the years, Mulberry Street Pizzeria will be selling 2o¢ slices throughout the day at all 4 locations, with proceeds benefiting the Michael J. Fox Foundation.
Local Hollywood celebrities are sure to make appearances throughout the day, as Mulberry Street Pizzeria is a favorite among many. One of the most well-known and highly rated pizzerias in the world, Mulberry Street Pizzeria opened in 1991 by Richie Palmer, whose original and authentic New-York- style pizza proved a recipe for success. With a loyal following among local residents, tourists from around the world, and Hollywood’s elite – including Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Frankie Vallie, Mickey Rourke, Jon Lovitz, and others - Richie quickly expanded his operation to include three additional locations – one in Encino, one in Sherman Oaks, and a second store in Beverly Hills.
From the Bronx, NY, Richie worked quickly from dishwasher and short-order cook to owner of his first pizzeria in New Rochelle, NY. Many years later, while Richie took a trip to Beverly Hills to visit good friends, actor Mickey Rourke and entrepreneur Guiseppe Franco, he fell in love with the weather and the city and decided to sell his New York pizzeria and re-establish in California. Since its inception, Mulberry Street Pizzeria has become a staple in Beverly Hills and Southern California at large. Most who have tried it say it’s one the best pizzas in the world.
Richie has also spread his success by taking his famous sauces mainstream. Mulberry Street Pizzeria Marinara, Vinaigrette, BBQ, and Hot Sauces are now available to enjoy at home or use as gourmet gifts. To order online or experience Mulberry Street Pizzeria, visit http://www.mulberrypizzeria.com.
In addition to pizza proceeds, donations will also be accepted throughout the day. For those who cannot attend, donations can also be made at http://www.teamfox.org/goto/mulberrypizza. All funds raised through this event will be matched dollar-for-dollar thanks to The Brin Wojcicki Challenge.
