The Sandusky Rotary is hosting their annual Sandusky Rotary Pizza Challenge from 4 pm to 7 pm on Tuesday, March 25 at the Kalahari Convention Center, 7000 Kalahari Drive (off US 250) in Sandusky. 

“We will have 13 to 14 different vendors on-hand giving away slices of their pizza,” said Gene Koby, Sandusky Rotary member and co-organizer of the event. “For $12 people can then go from table to table and have a piece of pizza from different vendors.”

With past participants like Cameo Pizza, Chet and Matt’s and the Pizza House, attendees get to try a variety of pizza from infamous area pizza establishments.

“It is such a good deal because for only $12 you get to try so many different kinds of pizza,” Koby said. “If you have always wanted to try a place out, but don’t want to buy a whole pizza, this is your chance to see if you like their food without wasting money.”

Pizza places throughout Erie County participate in the event, as well as a few other establishments that are located outside the county.

During the event a pizza-judging contest will also take place.

“Vendors will deliver pizzas with no labels on the boxes and local high school students will judge the pizza,” Koby said. “Some of the criteria that will be judged include best delivery, best in-house pizza and best overall pizza.”

Taking place for over 14 years, this event is very popular with everyone in the community and has become a cheap way to get a great dinner. 

All the money raised from the event will go towards the Sandusky Rotary Club Charitable Foundation. 

“Some of the things we have done with the money raised include buying winter cloths for area children in need,’ Koby said. “It is a really fun event and has become a staple of the community. People love coming out and sampling all the different pizzas and catching up after a long winter.”

Tickets to the Sandusky Rotary Pizza Challenge can be purchased from a Sandusky Rotary Club member or at the door at the event.
