The Moose’s Tooth in Anchorage had record sales Friday night as it donated $5 of every pizza sold to the family of Dorene Anderson. The 49-year-old was killed Sunday night during the Route 91 Harvest country music festival outside Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas when a gunman opened fire from a hotel window.
As of Friday night, more than 2,400 pizzas have been sold at Moose’s Tooth, KTVA reported. The pizzeria’s previous record was 2,164.
Moose’s Tooth customer service manager Megan McBride said the record sales reflected the community’s compassion for Anderson and her family.
“You know, I think Dorene was the highlight of everybody’s life,” McBride told KTVA. “Just like her daughter, she was a bastion of cheerfulness. And I think the turnout tonight represents just how many people and how many lives she touched.”
Thank you everyone for your patience today! It's a busier day than normal because we're donating a portion of all pizza...
