Who wants pizza!

Who makes the best pizza in the Palatine area? Eat some of the areas best pizza and find out on Sunday, November 4th from 11:30 AM until 3:00 PM at Durty Nellie’s Bar and Grill.

The Palatine Jaycees will be holding a contest to determine who makes the best pizza in the Palatine area on Sunday, November 4th from 11:30 AM until 3:00 PM at Durty Nellie’s Bar and Grill located at 120 N. Smith Street in Palatine.

Over 20 pizza restaurants that deliver to Palatine have been invited to compete.  Artistic Cuisine, Papa Saverios, Slice of Chicago, Hot Dog Richie's, Pizza Bella and Vini’s Pizza are just a few of the restaurants that have donated pizza to this annual community event.

“Palatine has so many delicious pizza places to choose from and this is a great opportunity to try a number of them,” said Traci Hinshaw, chairman of the project. 

“For a $10.00 donation, area residents will be able to judge for themselves who makes the best pizza in the area and at the same time help the community.  There will also be a 50/50 raffle and silent auction with great items to win.  All proceeds will go to the Palatine Jaycees to help in their projects that support the community.”

Every year, the Palatine Jaycees conduct numerous programs to serve the community and accumulate funds for operation of the Chapter and community donations.  Included in these projects is the Fourth of July Festival, Christmas tree sales, the annual garage sale and other projects that benefit the community and help raise funds.

The Palatine Jaycees provide development opportunities that empower young people between the age of 21 and 40 to create positive change.  As one of Palatine’s foremost organizations for young people, the Palatine Jaycees have provided community based events and funding to Palatine for more than fifty years.  As one of the largest chapters in the State of Illinois, the Palatine Jaycees offer a combination of community service, individual development and social opportunities.

The Palatine Chapter holds their monthly general meeting on the third Thursday of the month at 7:30 PM at the American Legion Hall on Palatine Road in Palatine.  For further information on the Palatine Jaycees, membership or any of their sponsored events write to the Palatine Jaycees, Post Office Box 1517, Palatine, IL 60078-1517, call them at 847-604-0288, email them at info@palatinejaycees.org or visit their web site at www.palatinejaycees.org.
