Support future scientists while enjoying a pie Thursday at Norma’s Cafe.
The restaurant known for its huge pies is partnering up with the Dallas Millennials Club this Pi Day (March 14) for the second year in a row. A portion of all pie sales, including catering and to-go orders on Thursday will be donated to Millennials for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) to fund scholarships and programs in Dallas/Fort Worth.
“Job opportunities in STEM continue to grow and Norma’s Cafe is proud to support educational initiatives for the youth who share a passion for these fields in our community,” Norma’s Cafe Owner Ed Murph said.
Money raised this year will be used to create scholarships for students to study food science and engage with restaurant innovators, said Christiana Yebra, vice president of marketing and co-founder of the Dallas Millennials Club.
“This is a unique, and fun, opportunity to partner with the Dallas community to impact the lives of our future STEM leaders,” she said.
To further honor Pi Day, Norma’s is bringing back its mint chocolate pie. A portion of sales throughout March of the limited edition pie will also be donated toward student programs.
All five Norma’s Cafe locations – North Dallas, Oak Cliff, Plano, Frisco and Lake Highlands – are participating in the fundraiser.
Dallas Millennials Club, founded in 2016, provides networking, community service, events and mentorship opportunities to millennials in the city. The club started the Millennials for STEM foundation, which hosts events to introduce children to and interest them in STEM fields.
