Bakersfield Life features Make-A-Wish & CPK partnership

Short Take: Make-A-Wish cooks up something special for local teen

Compiled by Bakersfield Life - Tuesday, Mar 22

In partnership with the Make-A-Wish Foundation, California Pizza Kitchen fulfilled the culinary dreams of Bakersfield teen Zach Wargo, who is living with titin myopathy, a rare condition that causes muscle weakness.

Because Zach is a cooking show and pizza aficionado, his ultimate culinary wish experience included a one-on-one cooking session with CPK’s executive chef and the opportunity to create his very own pizza, “Zach’s Bacon + Fig Pizza,” which will be sold at California Pizza Kitchen’s River Walk location during the month of March.

Part of the proceeds from Zach’s pizza will go to benefit the Kern County chapter of Make-A-Wish.
