Bettendorf, IA – For the 41st consecutive year, Happy Joe’s will host special needs children from around the Quad Cities at the 2013 Quad City Special Needs Children’s Party to be held Friday, November 22nd at the iWireless Center. Parties will be held at 9:00 and 11:30am. Happy Joe Whitty, his faithful dog Happy, the Happy Dancers, as well as our infamous Santa will be on hand to spread holiday cheer and delight to these special needs children. All Quad City area Happy Joe’s stores will be participating including Bettendorf, Davenport, East Moline, Eldridge, Galesburg, Geneseo, Moline and Rock Island.
“We take the holiday season as an opportunity to reflect on the past and continue the tradition our father started 41 years ago,” says Kristel Whitty-Ersan, Director of Marketing. “Without the support of local partners like Pepsi, Quad City’s Optimist Clubs, and the iWireless Center, this wonderful event would not be possible. We would also like to thank all of our hard-working volunteers including Burke Corp., local Optimists clubs, city and state police volunteers, and others too numerous to mention. Thank you for helping us make this a bigger and better event each year.”
Before opening his first Happy Joe's Pizza & Ice Cream Parlor in the Village of East Davenport, founder Joe Whitty was nearly fired from another pizza chain for sponsoring a party for a group of special needs children without first checking with his boss. In 1972, on the eve his first restaurant’s opening night , he invited a local priest to bless his business and promised that if he could make enough money to feed his family, he would give something back to the community. After just a few weeks in business, people were waiting out the door. True to his word, Joe shut down the restaurant for a few hours one day a year to have a party for those less fortunate, and has required his franchisees to do the same. Nearly 165,000 special needs children have benefited from the parties held throughout the chain over the past 41 years.
All media are welcome to join our team members at the iWireless Center on November 22nd at 9:00 and 11:30am.
