I was pleased to see this post regarding CPK's fundraising efforts for the Simmons and Veenstra families. I even checked my calendar to see if I could attend. I then clicked on the link for the coupon that must be presented to the server. I could not believe what I read.

The coupon stated in part, "Event proceeds void if flyer distributed in or near the restaurant." What in the world is CPK trying to say? What if I wanted to spread the word for other people to eat at CPK so that we could raise some money for the Simmons and Veenstra families? Does this mean I can't print extra coupons for other people who are already in CPK or people passing by outside CPK? This is so absurd, I was disgusted.

And on top of this insult, CPK is donating ONLY 20% of a customer's check to the families!!! This makes me question their true intention. In my opinion, CPK is only trying to get on the bandwagon of a very worthy cause just to promote their restaurant. I am angry and digusted by this shameless self-serving gesture by CPK. I will save my pizza money by boycotting this event and instead, send another check to their trust fund instead. I urge others to do the same.

Here's a hint to the head honcho of can't fool everybody. Just because Burger King raised over $70,000 for the Simmons family, it was done with true intentions and ALL the proceeds went to the Simmons family. It won't happen to CPK because of your devious marketing stragedy.
