2022 Celebrity Challenge – Team UNA

2022 Celebrity Challenge

2022 Celebrity Challenge Event partners ten locally-owned restaurants and 20 local celebrities, to raise funds for numerous local non-profits, as well as increase sales and provide valuable local exposure for the restaurant partners. The restaurant partners have also each committed to providing 500 meals to the Friendship Inn over the course of the next 12 months.


Celebrity Challenge is an annual event where 2 local celebrities are teamed with a local restaurant partner. Each celebrity team will do their best to promote their restaurant and raise as much money as possible with gift card sales for their restaurant partner. The restaurants are graciously donating a minimum of 15% of all gift cards sold!

You can buy the restaurant gift cards right here on this website and our team will deliver them to your door ( home or office) within 7 days! 

At the end of the event, the winning team is the one that has sold the most gift cards and increased the Facebook & Instagram fans/followers of their restaurant partners the most over the challenge period – June 3rd – June 24th.

UNA Pizza is a neighbourhood restaurant serving Californian inspired, thin crust pizza with Mediterranean influenced food and flavours. We find inspiration for our dishes from California to the south of Spain, Italy & France.

UNA pizza + wine was dreamt up through multiple trips to San Francisco where pizza and the restaurants serving these California ‘zas, can be found in every neighbourhood and are often the anchor for each area. We love how these restaurants welcomed everyone that lives within their area for anything from a small snack, to a glass of wine or even simply dessert and a coffee. UNA aims to be an anchor in the Broadway community and while we take limited reservations, our aim is that guests may come in at anytime, for anything and stay for as long as they like. We also love good wine so had to include it in our name and have curated a unique list showcasing small producers whose emphasis, like ours, is also on quality.
