John Calipari Announces Papa John's Deal

A message from

It gives me a great deal of pride to share with you the start of our first significant fundraising opportunity to help support the Calipari Family Foundation for Children (CFFC).

I'm thrilled to be partnering with Papa John's in offering "The Coach Cal 3-Pointer" - a large, up to 3-topping pizza for just $10. A dollar from each ON-LINE order (using promo code CHCAL) will be donated to the CFFC and benefit the Kentucky Children's Hospital.

Beginning today, at noon, I will be on-line ordering "The Coach Cal 3-Pointer" for delivery to the Craft Center.

Check my Facebook and Twitter postings later this morning and then make your own suggestion of a Papa John's "3-Pointer" you'd like to make and we'll choose our favorite each afternoon as our Office Pizza of the Day. [Create from this impressive list of Papa John's toppings: Pepperoni, Sausage, Spicy Italian Sausage, Ham, Hickory-Smoked Bacon, Grilled All-White Chicken, Fresh-Sliced Onions, Fresh-Sliced Green Peppers, Baby Portabella Mushrooms, Fresh-Sliced Roma Tomatoes, Black Olives, Sweet Pineapple, Extra Cheese (Other toppings may be available where you are.)]

Remember: This special offer is for ON-LINE orders only and you will need to use promo code CHCAL.

Let me just say what a pleasure it is to be teaming up with John Schnatter and his incredible Papa John's family.

“Coach Cal has a tremendous following on his Twitter and Facebook pages with more than 500,000 fans combined,” said Jude Thompson, Papa John’s president and chief operating officer. “We view this as an opportunity to align Papa John’s with one of the hottest coaches in college basketball and strengthen our already strong ties to the University of Kentucky, all the while leveraging his strong following to support a very worthy cause – the Calipari Family Foundation for Children.”

What's BETTER than UK fans teaming with Papa John's to make a difference in kids' lives? We'll have more information on this exciting fundraiser in the days ahead. For now, go on-line and make your own "3-Pointer!"

The Calipari Family Foundation for Children is dedicated to the betterment of the lives of underprivileged children, and is currently in the process of identifying the primary charities to be involved with in the Commonwealth and in Memphis.
