In a major push for the world’s largest pizza chain, Pizza Hut’s Triple Treat Box will come with a crowd-pleasing bonus this holiday season—the chance to win an Xbox gaming system. And not just one Xbox—we’re talking more than 1,000. The megachain will give away 1,140 Xbox One S consoles to its customers between November 7 and December 24. That averages out to about one Xbox per hour every day through Christmas Eve. And you don’t even have to order pizza to win.

Pizza-Making Marathon Raises Money for Diabetes Research

A 24-hour pizza-making marathon raised nearly $8,000 for diabetes research at Anna’s Pizza & Pasta in Winnebago, Illinois this past weekend.  Co-owners Brian and Stacy Weavel brainstormed the fundraiser after their 11-year-old son, Alec, was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes last year. Weavel and employee Zach Brierton worked the ovens from noon on Saturday through noon the next day, drawing coverage from media outlets like WIFR-TV and the Rockford Register Star.
