THANKS! California Pizza Kitchen in Gaithersburg provided Catering for our amazing Brides on a Dime Expo on September 30th, 2012. To top that off, they added a 3-day fundraiser at their restaurant! We'd like to thank the entire staff of California Pizza Kitchen for the delicious pasta and salads catering. Very classy.

Wow! Catering provided by CPK!

Wow! Oct 1-4, All Day Fundraiser

Not only is California Pizza Kitchen catering our Brides on a Dime Expo and powering the models for our fashion show,...

California Pizza Kitchen of Gaithersburg is throwing a 4-Day Fundraiser, donating 20% of participating customers' checks (dine-in, take-out, online order, catering, or curb-side) to St. Anthony's Bridal. Check out the flyer.
