Virgin Radio 107.3 FM morning DJ

Pizza: Asian-inspired Thai de Rock

Charity: 2024 Cops for Cancer Tour de Rock

Bailey is not only raising money for this amazing cause, which focuses on pediatric cancer research, she is one of four media riders cycling Vancouver Island with first responders. We’re extremely proud to join her team for the month of July. For each of her Thai de Rock pizzas sold at our Colwood and Chemainus locations, we’ll add $5 to her totals. And we’ll be cheering her on as the ride progresses from Port Alice to Victoria this fall.

How it went: Mayor Doug helped us kick off this cool fundraising promotion by working with our executive chef Darcy Creamore on a pizza that featured birria marinara sauce, chuck beef, red onion, tomato, green pepper, fior di latte, aged white cheddar, topped with cilantro, chilli flakes and an avocado crema. In the end we presented a cheque for $750 to the PCFSA to help fund their community programs.
