Received the following press release from a PR company looking to get the word out; although I’m not the biggest fan of Boston’s The Gourment Pizza, I know plenty of you are!

Local Restaurant Serves Up Heart-Shaped Gourmet Pizzas to Benefit Shodair Children’s Specialty Hospital

GREAT FALLS, MONT. – Continuing a long-standing tradition of giving back to its local communities, Boston’s The Gourmet Pizza kicks off its annual Valentine’s fundraiser benefiting Children’s Miracle Network, a national non-profit organization comprised of 170 children’s hospitals (CMN), on January 28. For the event, the Great Falls restaurant will feature two unique giving opportunities designed to raise funds that will be donated directly to Shodair Children’s Specialty Hospital.

As with the entire menu, the heart-shaped pizzas are available in store, for take out, or by delivery (if available) for all four days. In addition to heart-shaped pizzas, Boston’s will sell special paper hearts that patrons can write Valentine’s messages and designs on for a $1 donation. Paper hearts will be available beginning January 28 through February 17 and will be displayed in the restaurant for the duration of the fundraiser.

Children’s Miracle Network is a non-profit organization dedicated to saving and improving the lives of children through fundraising for children’s hospitals across North America. Each year the 170 Children’s Miracle Network hospitals provide the finest medical care, life-saving research and preventative education to help millions of kids overcome diseases and injuries of every kind.

Looks like a tasty way to donate to a worthy cause.



  1. Regarding you not being a huge fan of Boston’s..I have a quick little tidbit to add. Some friends of mine went there for dinner a while back. Ordered a couple of beers, ordered food and appetizers. The male friend went to the restroom, came back and then they were confronted by someone (management I’m assuming) and were being asked to leave. When they asked why they were simply told that they saw my friend “stumble” a little when he came out of the bathroom. So, totally embarrassed, they had no choice but to leave the restaurant. With people staring at them I’m sure. Do they routinely watch the way people walk? Shouldn’t they have just not served them any more alcohol? They were not causing any trouble whatsoever. I’m sure they’re aware of the greatest marketing tool around….WORD OF MOUTH! And that’s just what I inted to do…use my mouth to spread the word. Thanks for listening!

  2. Word of mouth???!!! You’re a marketing genius, Ruby.

    Yeah, Boston’s pretty much sucks if they don’t want stumbling drunks in their establishment.

  3. Didn’t expect everyone to agree with me. Stumbling drunks, they were not! I just hope no one else finds themselves in a similar situation. Being made an example of when you’re not even causing any trouble. I wonder how many actual drunks they’ve encountered and did nothing? Guess we’ll never know. Don’t trip over your own shoes out there people…you’ll get kicked out.
