Chicago's Home Run Inn donating 10,000 pizzas to people in need
CHICAGO - Chicago's own Home Run Inn Pizza turns 75 years old this year!
To celebrate, they are throwing a pizza party for those in need, and donating 10,000 pizzas.
Those pizzas will go to Chicago's Family Support Services, and the city will distribute them to people in need.
The recipe dates back to 1947 when the family renamed their tavern on the South Side, The Home Run Inn.
Now, they have nine pizzerias throughout Chicagoland, and are operated by the family's fourth generation.
