Downtown Naperville’s Pizzeria Neo recently closed their doors to help raise funds for a neighbor.
Community members joined North Central College officials for a fundraiser where proceeds go to beautifying the eyesore land next to Burger King.
The space will be an addition to the college’s gateway to campus located beside Fredenhagen Park leading up to the stadium.
“We just feel like it’s our responsibility to you know, wherever you’re doing business and what town, to try and lend a hand anyway you can,” said Tony Alfonso, Owner of Neo Pizzeria.
“This is a great representation of the relationship that North Central College and the city of Naperville, and all of the businesses and it’s a great partnership,” said Adrian Alrich, North Central College’s Director of Alumni Relations. “And we are really looking forward to what this project is going to look like when it’s completed.”
The first portion of the gateway was dedicated back in October during the college’s homecoming.
