IOCP Sleep Out 2008: Peter Larson and Punch Pizza collaborating to raise funds

From IOCP's Newsletter, "Touchpoint":

In the seven years Peter Larson has slept out during The Sleep Out campaign, he has accumulated a lot of nick-names. The Sleep Out prince who raised $50,000, the brave Boy Scout who slept in a cardboard box for 43 nights, an Eleven Who Care award winner, a pizza-loving kid inspired by Bob Fisher to help keep families in their homes.

“This year I want to help 125 families avoid homelessness,” Peter said. “I plan to sleep out every night of the campaign.” To meet his personal goal, he hopes to raise $71,125.

Also back as a major supporter of Peter’s efforts is Punch Pizza in downtown Wayzata. Join Peter and his friends Sunday, Dec. 14, 5–9 p.m. for delicious Punch Pizza! Punch will contribute 50% of its proceeds for the entire day toward Peter’s goal, and will accept donations in a tip jar. Peter’s Boy Scout troop will help serve and staff the event. Many thanks to John Puckett, owner of Punch Pizza.
