Sam Scott, who was hit and killed by a drunk driver on February 3, 2012 as he cycled home from work at Dewey’s Pizza, is being honored by Dewey’s during the week of May 19 – 25 – the week of the Ride of Silence. During that week please consider going to Dewey’s and ordering a Tito Santana pizza. The proceeds from the sale of that seasonal pizza at all 17 of their stores will be donated to Trailnet. Sam’s mother Susan worked with Dewey’s to make this happen. Thank you, Susan, and thank you, Dewey’s.
