On Saturday when you stop in to Home Slice Pizza on St. Clair Street downtown, they’ll donate a dollar from every pizza sold to DART.

Owner Michael Knight believes this program saves lives and has a personal connection to the program because Sheriff John Tharp is his second cousin.

So, now you have TWO excuses to eat pizza on Saturday.
