Town Crier

WILMINGTON — On Monday, Jan. 27, 2020, the 4th annual Taste of the Towns Pizza Wars will be hosted in the Wil­mington Middle School Cafeteria, located at 25 Carter Lane. The event will be held from 6:30 p.m. - 7:30 p.m. All proceeds will benefit the Relay for Life of Wil­mington-Billerica-Tewks­bury. Attendees will have the chance to vote on the best pizza across all three towns.

Relay for Life is an event held nationwide in which participants raise money and participate in an all night long celebration/walk to raise awareness for the ongoing fight against cancer, as well as to celebrate survivors. Proceeds go to the American Cancer Society.

According to the Wil­mington-Billerica-Tewks­bury Relay for Life’s facebook page, Relay for Life is “the signature fundraising activity for the American Cancer Society. It offers everyone in a community an opportunity to participate in the fight against cancer. Teams of people camp out at a local high school, park, or fairground and take turns walking or running around a track or path.”

This year’s Relay for Life will be held on June 19, 2020 at Wilmington High School, located at 159 Church St.

At this year’s Pizza Wars fundraiser, five piz­za establishments from the towns have been confirmed for Pizza Wars currently. They include: EJ’s Fresh Frozen Piz­za, LaRosa’s, Pizza Mia & Uptown Deli, and Tre­mezzo Pizzeria of Wil­mington, as well as An­thony’s Famous Roast Beef & Pizza of Tewks­bury.

Last year, the winner of Pizza Wars was Wil­ming­ton House of Pizza, which came in first place in both the cheese and specialty categories. Last year’s event raised about $1,100.
