Domino’s Pizza has partnered with Compass 2 Campus to offer a name-your-own-price promotion to benefit the educational mentorship program, according to a press release issued by University Communications on Sept. 18.
The new Sehome Village Domino’s Pizza will hand out gift certificates good for one large pizza with any toppings for whatever price the customer feels the pizza is worth; all revenue will go directly to Compass 2 Campus, according to the press release. Dominos will distribute 250 gift certificates each day of the Red Square Info Fair Sept. 24-25, according to the release.
Sehome Village Domino’s Pizza manager and spring 2009 Western graduate Corwin Marsh said he expects to open the Sehome location within the first week of fall quarter. Its target opening date is Sept. 24, he said, the planned first day of the Compass 2 Campus fundraiser.
Marsh wants to open as soon as the permits are all approved and the health inspections are completed, he said, but because these processes take time, the Sehome Village Domino’s may not open by its target date, in which case he would push the fundraiser back.
There are many reasons Marsh wanted to partner with Compass 2 Campus, he said, and Domino’s is on board to support children as well as the general Bellingham community.
“Kids and pizza go great together,” Marsh said.
Compass 2 Campus director Cyndie Shepard said Domino’s Pizza contacted Western because they were interested in hosting a fundraiser to make sure students knew about the new Dominoes Pizza store in Sehome Village. They had the idea to make Western students aware they were on campus by giving to a campus charity, Shepard said.
