We will be hosting this event at Chicago's Pizza, 1031 N. State St., Greenfield. Bring an old friend or come to make new friends, but come hungry because FUSE will cover the cost of pizza!
Due to Covid and the nature of this program, we will be limiting Pizza Nights to 20 attendees. You MUST be registered to attend.
*We ask that caregivers not pick up teens and young adults until after 7:45 pm. This allows for plenty of time to eat and participate in the social activity planned for the evening.*
