Bochy Pizza Party at Amici’s raises over $40K for SF HPP

Amicis owners Bochys and Martha

For the third straight year, Amici’s East Coast Pizzeria worked with Kim and Bruce Bochy to raise money for San Francisco Homeless Prenatal Program. When the proceeds from the pizza party (all sales from 3-10 pm at both Amici’s locations in The City) were added with the raffle ticket sales, the total came to over $40,000.

That’s roughly twice the donation made to SF HPP last year or the previous year, and it showed with how many people came to Amici’s after the game. It didn’t hurt that the raffle was a crazy-huge success this year, either (winners announced Aug. 19).

Many thanks to Richard Allum for putting this together — it’s clear from SF HPP’s slogan, “Every baby deserves to be born healthy,” that everyone felt good about what was going on yesterday. Jeremy Affeldt, no stranger to charity work, joined his manager at Amici’s and mingled with fans after the game. The Giants lost earlier in the day, but you wouldn’t have been able to tell by watching Bruce Bochy, who posed for photos with a smile and signed everything placed in front of him.

It was an honor to be a part of something so meaningful to the community for a third time, and the fact that this was the most successful event yet made it that much better.
