WOW, do you remember where you were in 1989? A young entrepreneur named Chris Conneen was opening his first restaurant in Downtown Melbourne called Pizza Gallery. It was twelve years later, at their 5th location on Wickham Rd when they changed their name to Pizza Gallery & Grill. Fast forward another eighteen years and PGG has become one of Brevard’s absolute favorite local restaurants. Conneen says he is blessed beyond words and time really does fly (30 Years) when you are having fun!

With community involvement and support at the forefront of their company values, PGG has given over $5.5 million philanthropically to organizations like Brevard Public Schools, Brevard Rescue Mission, Lead Brevard, Promise in Brevard, Space Coast United Soccer, Viera Suntree Little League, Suntree Viera Youth Football just to name a few.  Then there are outside the box donations like: over 23 thousand diapers donated to Pregnancy resources, more than 40 thousand pieces of baseball equipment taken to a Dominican Republic baseball outreach, over 5,000 free pizzas given to individuals who received CPR certifications.

Now PGG wants to say Thank You Brevard by sponsoring a huge event in Central Park at The Avenue Viera. On Saturday November 9th from 5-11pm Pizza Gallery & Grill will be the Surreal Sponsor for the inaugural Uptown Art & Cuisine Event. Featuring the musical groups HOT PINK and Absolute Blue along with the works of local artists, chefs, breweries and more. There will be over $5,000 in prizes and give-aways including the “Golden Knot Giveaway” where one lucky guest will receive a Golden Knot in their order of World Famous Garlic Knots each day.

This will happen for 30 days prior to the Uptown Art & Cuisine event. At 8pm, on November 9th, PGG will draw a lucky winner from the 30 Golden Knot Certificates who will receive a Royal Caribbean Cruise for Two. So join PGG with four Great reasons to celebrate Food/Drink/Art/Community on November 9th from 5-11pm in The Avenue Viera.
