California Pizza Kitchen
Stamford CT

Connor Armstrong of Stamford will be working behind the counter at California Pizza Kitchen on Monday December 8th beginning at 5:00PM to help raise money for Make-A-Wish Connecticut, whose mission is to grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions. Connor, who will have his wish to go to Atlantis granted by the Foundation this coming Spring, has a deep love of cooking and will be celebrated as the Head Chef during CPK’s fundraising event.


All guests who bring the CPK/Make-A-Wish Flyer with them on Monday evening will have 20% of diner’s bill donated back to Make-A-Wish Connecticut. You can download the flyer here or by visiting the Make-A-Wish Connecticut website at CT.WISH.ORG.

California Pizza Kitchen will be setting Connor up for success on Monday, too. He’ll be dressed appropriately, in a Chef Jacket, so everyone knows he is in charge.

Guests are encouraged to join Connor and his family at California Pizza Kitchen located at the Stamford Town Center on Monday evening. Connor will be greeting guests, cooking up pizzas, and helping to make wishes come true for kids just like him.

“We are thrilled to celebrate Connor’s skills and talents in such a unique way,” commented Michael Dominick, Community & Media Relations Manager for Make-A-Wish Connecticut. “California Pizza Kitchen has been incredibly generous in putting this special night together, and we look forward to everyone joining us as we celebrate Connor and all the Wish Kids this event will benefit.”

About Make-A-Wish® Connecticut
The Make-A-Wish Foundation® of Connecticut grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy.  Wish-come-true experiences can do wonders by providing a much-needed break from lengthy hospital stays and medical treatments. They give back to a child what a serious medical condition can take away—the chance to simply enjoy being a kid. Wish kids choose something that will inspire happiness and will allow them to spend precious time with their families. The Connecticut chapter has made over 2,400 wishes come true since its inception in 1986. Learn more about Connecticut wishes at, or join Make-A-Wish on Facebook (search Make-A-Wish Connecticut) and Twitter (@MakeAWishCT).
