Papa John’s Dining Night Out: Thursday, January 24th

Another holiday season has been logged into the books! But has 2018 left you perplexed as to how all the time and energy preparing was over in a flash….or baffled by how all the decorations fit into those storage boxes?! Well, unfortunately the PTO can’t help with the packing, BUT they can solve one mystery for you! You may be thinking “What are we going to have for dinner on January 24th?” Well here’s your answer, Papa John’s pizza! Hollymead’s next Dining Night Out event will occur on Thursday, January 24th at our local Papa John’s (3441 Seminole Trail, across from Hollymead Town Center). Papa John’s will contribute up to 15% of all ONLINE sales on this day when you simply enter the Promo Code HOLLYMEAD.

Fundraising will only be generated for online orders. Orders can be for pickup or delivery.

Thank you for your continued support of Hollymead’s Dining Night Out fundraisers!
