Round Table Family Charities Helps Grant Anna's Wish
Round Table Pizza's support of Make-A-Wish continues as Round Table Family Charities helped make another child's wish come true.
Anna, an 8-year old from Menlo Park, California, is battling a brain tumor. Her wish was to have a dolphin experience in Hawaii and, last month, that wish came true.
Round Table welcomed Anna back with a pizza party in Menlo Park, attended by her family and friends. The restaurant was decorated in blue, Anna's favorite color.
Round Table thanks Menlo Park restaurant owner Bob Larson and his team for making this a special evening for Anna and her family.

More than fifty years later, Round Table Pizza remains true to its founder's vision with 450 restaurants across the western United States and the world. Round Table's signature tagline, "The Last Honest Pizza", describes its commitment to quality and authenticity.
