‘School’s Out’ event to benefit KidsMatter is set for June 6 at Lou Malnati’s in Naperville


Again, a portion of sales from “School’s Out” will support KidsMatter. Both Naperville locations of Lou Malnati’s will participate. In downtown Naperville, Lou’s is located at 131 W. Jefferson Avenue where its newly remodeled patio likely will remind longtime residents that the restaurant is set in the historic firehouse. Note also, this year is the 150th year of the Naperville Fire Department. (PN File Photo)

The community is invited to a “School’s Out” event on Thurs., June 6, at Lou Malnati’s Pizzeria to celebrate the beginning of summer and to benefit KidsMatter.

Lou Malnati’s will donate 20 percent of all sales to KidsMatter—via dine in, carry out or delivery orders—between 11AM and 11PM at both Naperville locations: 131 W. Jefferson Avenue and 2879 95th Street.

Additionally, student musicians will perform at the Jefferson Street location in downtown Naperville from 5-8PM.
