Local Giveway - Two gift cards for Wolfman Pizza

Wolfman Pizza
Love pizza? Live in the Charlotte area? Wolfman Pizza is celebrating their 20th Anniversary and they have been kind enough to provide me with a gift card and 2 gift cards for my readers.

 Wolfman Pizza has 4 convenient locations in the Charlotte area. They are located in Cotswold,  Myers Park, Ballantyne, and Quail Corners.

Here is a little information about Wolfman Pizza:
Wolfman Pizza has over 22 specialty pizzas, the freshest salads, panini sandwiches and much more. While most other styles of pizza are associated with different kinds of crust, the distinguishing feature of California‐style pizza is the use of non-traditional toppings that derive from cuisines other than the usual Italian‐style tomato sauce and mozzarella cheese, incorporating fresh vegetables. They make their dough fresh EVERY DAY and it is NEVER FROZEN! They make all of their sauces and salad dressings in house. They shred their Sorrento® whole milk mozzarella cheese daily. They cut fresh local (when available) vegetables daily.

Another great thing is kids eat FREE every Tuesday from 5PM to 8PM. DINE‐IN ONLY

Become a Mom Ambassador with Moms Meet

  • Going green on a budget
  • Slow fam­ily living
  • How to feed your family
In addi­tion to cre­at­ing a space for moms to talk par­ent­ing and eco-conscious liv­ing, Moms Meet offers exciting oppor­tu­ni­ties for Mom Ambas­sadors and their groups to sam­ple the lat­est healthy, green products.

I became a Mom Ambasador in late 2010 and since then I have had the opportunity to share several products with other moms including Boiron products, Sprout Organic Baby Food and the most recent free samples in my mailbox this week were several homeopathic products from Kids Relief along with a book that is a Guide to Homeopathy (picture above). I can't wait to share these products with my friends.
