Grotto Pizza recently collaborated with Tito’s Handmade Vodka to donate $10,000 to Easterseals Delaware and Maryland’s Eastern Shore.
The two companies also took part in a volleyball tournament sponsored by the nonprofit that raised money for its mission and charitable causes.
In early 2019, Tito’s and Grotto Pizza pledged to work together to raise money for Easterseals with the craft vodka company committing to donate $1 for every Tito’s beverage sold companywide at Grotto Pizza in April and May. Grotto Pizza rose to the challenge and sold over 10,000 Tito’s beverages. Eight Grotto Pizza stores participated in the annual tournament, raising $9,335.
