Flying Squirrel Pizza coming to Maple Leaf in May

February 21, 2011

in Restaurants

We all know at this point – and Maple Leaf Life officially reported – but A New York Pizza Place has closed.

The good news? It’ll be replaced by Flying Squirrel Pizza Co., which has locations in Seward Park and Ballard and has terrific reviews on Yelp and elsewhere.

According to Flying Squirrel’s Facebook page, the joint will open up in Spring. I’ve read reports that Spring means May. We have a few months to wait, but it’ll be worth it! Flying Squirrel offers some terrific, uniquely Seattle things: they offer Molly Moon’s ice cream (wahoo!), and use Salumi meat and a lot of organic produce on their pizzas.

Has anyone been to Flying Squirrel at its other locations? I haven’t yet – but I’m so excited to try it when it comes to Maple Leaf!

My name is Sam Carpenter and my mom and I are writing to you to request a donation for the Roosevelt High School Sports Auction. I play for both the Cross Country Team and the Men’s Soccer Team. I am a captain of both varsity teams. I know many players cannot afford the $100.00 mandatory fee required to play. I have gotten so much out of the sports program at RHS, and would hate to see kids miss out because they can’t afford it.

Each year, the Roosevelt High School Athletic Boosters organization sponsors an auction to raise funds that supplement and support the entire sports program at Roosevelt. As you may be aware, cutbacks to public education across the state have not only impacted the academic programs they have also reduced budgets supporting sports programs. The funds raised at the auction go directly to all the sports teams to purchase uniforms and training equipment, to compensate a part time athletic trainer, and to cover other expenses for the teams such as field rentals and transportation, among others.

We are reaching out to a number of reputable businesses to request donations for the auction. Popular items are gift certificates, entertainment vouchers, and tickets to special events.

Please note that the Roosevelt Athletic Boosters is a 501 (c) (3) organization which makes your donation tax deductible (Tax I.D. # 34-2022-806).

If you are interested in making a donation to the Roosevelt High School Sports Auction, please send your item to the following address:

Roosevelt High School Athletic Boosters
c/o Sam Carpenter
9711 8th Ave NE
Seattle, WA 98115

The date of this year’s auction is February 4, 2012. Please send your donation by no later than January 20, 2012 so that we receive it in time for inclusion in the auction. Typically the auction is attended by 250 – 300 people and raises $80K – $90K each year thanks in a large part to the wonderful support from the business, sports, and arts communities across the Pacific Northwest.

If you have any questions about this, please don’t hesitate to send me an email or call me on 206 523-5173 Thank you in advance for your support and generosity.

Sam Carpenter
