PUNXSUTAWNEY â The Fox's Pizza Den Pizza & Prevention 11th annual fundraiser has broken more records in raising money for the Punxsutawney Fire Department over the weekend.
The final totals are still coming in, but as of Sunday, Fox's Pizza sold close to 5,000 pizzas and pizza coupons during the annual fire department fundraiser, said Scott Anthony, owner of Fox's Pizza Den in Punxsy.
Converting that into dollars, it totals $45,449.79, with the money donated in tips yet to be added to the tally, Anthony said, adding that the public has embraced this as an event more than a fundraiser.
