Sponsor of the Week!

SPONSOR OF THE WEEK: Stephen Votino and Moonlight Pizza

Wedge Garden is going to start highlighting one of our in-kind sponsors each week, in order to show our appreciation for all that they have done for the garden and the community.

This week's Sponsor is Stephen Votino and Moonlight Pizza!

Stephen Votino, his wife Tricia, and their daughter Giada are downtown residents of Raleigh and make significant contributions to the community! Stephen is the co-owner of Moonlight Pizza along with being the president of Century 21 Triangle Group.  Moonlight Pizza, located on Morgan St., has been serving the people of Raleigh since 1996. They’re known for using the freshest local ingredients and going to great lengths to support local farms and markets. You can go there with your friends and family and enjoy a wonderful seat in their outdoor patio area or even a delicious gluten-free item, such as pizza or gnocchi…for all you readers out there with special dietary needs. We, at the Wedge, personally love when their jasmine vines bloom! Moonlight has supported the Wedge Garden by sponsoring Service Raleigh Neighborhood Lunch in 2014 and 2015 and IT WAS DELICIOUS!

As many of you know Wedge Garden is a communal garden and open to all citizens to grow and enjoy a harvest.  One of the welcomed suggestions many neighbors have made is to have something in each bed to show what is growing. Last year we tried putting up signs labeling each bed but they didn’t make it through this horrendous winter. So Mary Osborn, a dedicated gardener and NCSU student, suggested to put real estate sign holders in their place. Stephen and the gang at Century 21 didn’t show a moments hesitation when we asked them to donate 18 real estate sign holders for the Wedge. That’s over $300.00 and we couldn’t be more delighted with how they turned out! 

Stephen and Giada joined us on a very cold but sunny Service Raleigh day and brought with them the 18 sign holders. These holders will help all the visitors and gardeners see what is growing in each bed, along with when the crops will be ready for harvest. We love how the sign holders look in the garden and are already busy planning what to plant in each bed! Maybe the neighborhood kids can come out to paint and decorate them… Hmmmm, I guess that’s just going to be another workshop at the Wedge!

We are so grateful for all that Stephen and Moonlight Pizza has done for us! If you’re ever in the mood for a good piece of pizza and a great night out with the people you love, Moonlight Pizza is the place for you!

Also, the Wedge is wishing all you mothers out there a happy Mother's Day!! Thanks for everything you do!!
