Papa Johns Fundraiser

Jr Mavs Families,

We are excited to announce that we will be doing the Papa Johns Card Fundraiser again this year! 

These cards are amazing. They are good for BUY ONE LARGE PIZZA, GET ONE MEDIUM FREE and can be used over and over for an entire year. New this year, the card also offers three bonus deals from Get Air, Dixons Chili and Firestone (these additional offers also can be used over and over for the entire year). This card is unlimited, meaning you can use it for multiple pizzas in one order  (for example: If you order 10 large pizzas in one year, you will get 10 pizzas for free that same order). The cards are only $15 each!

If you have any questions, please contact Dawn Fortner at Thank you!
