Public Relations Campaign Club to host Give-Back Night on Saturday

HUNTINGTON, W.Va. – Marshall University’s Public Relations Campaign Club is teaming up with Backyard Pizza and Raw Bar to help raise money for the River Valley Child Development Services.

Backyard Pizza and Raw Bar is located at 841 Fourth Ave. in Huntington. The fundraiser will be held all day Saturday, March 2.

Backyard will give $1 from every 14-inch pizza that is ordered throughout the day. It features specialty pizzas made from scratch every day of the week.

The give-back night is one of many fundraisers the Marshall University Public Relations Campaign Club will be hosting leading up to the annual Questions Trivia Night to raise money for River Valley Child Development Services.

Proceeds from “Questions” and related events will go toward River Valley’s T.I.P.S. (Tuition Investment Program Support) scholarship program. The T.I.P.S. scholarship program helps low-income families afford quality child care.

T.I.P.S. provides partial financial assistance to families that are currently pursuing financial stability through higher education or work and are no longer eligible for subsidy through Link. Link is a community service organization that works with parents, child care providers, businesses and community organizations to help promote the availability of quality child care services in the area.
