Lego Donation Drive at Sgt. Pepperoni’s Pizza Store


During the month of September, Sgt. Pepperoni’s Pizza Store in Newport Beach will be collecting new, unused Lego kits for Julian’s Lego Corner, a fundraiser that provides Legos for patients of CHOC Children’s Hospital. 

The promotion coincides with September’s Childhood Cancer Awareness Month and is inspired by Julian Dunn, a local boy whose lengthy journey through cancer treatment was made more endurable by building Legos. In his memory, Julian’s Lego Corner was established at CHOC so other patients undergoing long hospital stays and difficult treatment can enjoy the creative and time-consuming process of brick-building.

In addition to collecting Lego kits, all profits from the sale of “Sweet Things” desserts and the pizzeria’s September pie of the month will support the fundraiser. Sgt. Pepperoni’s September pie is a Quattro Formaggi comprised of fontina, provolone, gouda, and mozzarella cheeses on its famous New York-style crust.

Finally, Sgt. Pepperoni’s will host a benefit night for JLC on Tuesday, September 10 from 5 to 10 p.m. 100% profit of all sales during that time will be donated. Sgt. Pepperoni’s staff has a goal of raising $10,000 throughout September.

LEGO kits can be for all ages including teens, however, hospital infection control policy requires that they be new.  Tax-deductible checks/gifts can also be made directly to CHOC via Be sure to specify they are for Julian’s Lego Fund via the Sgt. Pepperoni’s promotion. 

Sgt. Pepperoni’s Pizza Store is at 2300 S.E. Bristol St., Newport Beach.949.852.9500 or visit
