What’s Happening


Congress Pizzas <3‘s UPAWS! From November 23 to December 26, 2016, participating Ishpeming and Negaunee bar/restaurants participated in a UPAWS Santa Paws Fundraiser “Santa Paws is Coming to Town!” In which patrons purchased a paper “Santa Paws” for $1 as a donation to help the homeless pets at UPAWS. Each “Santa Paw” purchased was signed by the customer and prominently displayed in each participating business. The proceeds from this fundraiser went directly towards the care of the animals at UPAWS and helps them find their very own forever homes!

Thank you to each participating business; Cognition Brewing Company, Congress Pizzas, Venice Pub and Pizzeria, Brogie’s Tavern, Barr’s Bar, Rookies Sports Bar, Jackson’s Pit, Chappers Pub, Smarty’s Saloon, and Tino’s Bar & Pizza.

We’d like to extend a special thank you to our 2016 Top Santa Paws Contributor Congress Pizzas! Congress Pizzas staff and pets received a special paw print trophy as our 2016 Top Santa Paws! Congress Pizzas Holly Michelin and her dog Cody, Cassandra Lambert and her dog Bentley, Kris and Ryan Tunteri and their puppies Gracie and Arnie are pictured receiving the award from Board President Amber Wetton.
