COCHECTON CENTER February 15, 2008 It was a sold-out event for the Narrowsburg American Youth Soccer Organization (AYSO) as the group hosted its very first Old Fashion Harold Sims Pizza Sale on Super Bowl Sunday.
The 200 available tickets sold out in no time with the word traveling that the famous local pizza was once again available. The pizza recipe dates back more than 60 years and has become famous in the local area.
Brian “Chief” DuBois, who is in charge of the special recipe, noted that the pizza contains peanut oil and is made with Swiss cheese, but would not give out any more information about it. However, he noted that every time the pizza is used for a fundraising event, it sells out in no time.
The funds raised at Sunday’s successful event will be used to help with the costs of coaches’ equipment, field paint and continuing education costs for the Narrowsburg AYSO board members.
“Our family has been helping with fundraisers like this one for many years and it is always a great turn out,” said Sandy Daub, who helped out at the event. “We have many volunteers here today, including our local legislator David Sager, who is rolling dough. This event is for the kids and it is always fun and a great time.”
Wendy Julkerski, Regional Commissioner of the AYSO, said, “This is a great event and we want to thank everyone for their support and volunteering here today. The kids will truly benefit from this event today.”
Julkerski also said that the Narrowsburg AYSO is planning to hold a penny social on Sun., March 9 and that donations are now being accepted for that event. Anyone interested in donating to the upcoming penny social can do so by calling Julkerski at 557-8555.
