Plano, TX - Prom, birthdays, and graduations. The list of missed moments over the last few months is too long to count. While those memories can't be replaced, America's dairy farmers and Pizza Hut joined forces to help bring some much-needed joy to mark a milestone worth celebrating in a big way. Together, they are honoring the High School Class of 2020 by giving away half a million pizzas to graduates and their families - because nothing makes a party better than pizza. And, last night on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Mr. Fallon himself joined in on the fun by announcing the pizza giveaway.
"Our brand has a long history of celebrating moments that matter - like graduations - and Pizza Hut takes pride in being a part of our customers' big days. So, it's only natural that we'd be there for students and their families to help celebrate the accomplishments of the graduating class of 2020," said George Felix, chief marketing officer, Pizza Hut. "We're proud to partner with America's hard-working dairy farmers to bring students who are missing out on their chance to cross the stage with their diploma, an opportunity to celebrate with their favorite Pizza Hut pizza."
"We are so excited to partner with Pizza Hut to help high school seniors and their families celebrate this special milestone in their lives," said Marilyn Hershey, a Pennsylvania dairy farmer and chair of Dairy Management Inc., a dairy promotion organization funded by America's dairy farmers and importers. "America's dairy farmers have great appreciation and respect for the hard work that graduating students have put in and nothing celebrates that better than cheese and pizza enjoyed with family and friends."
