Buy a pair of Papa G's pizzas and help get Jessie Simpson home

The fundraiser organized by Papa’s G’s is meant to raise money for Simpson’s mom, Sue, so she can upgrade her Savona home to accommodate her son’s return as he will need care for the rest of his life.

Papa G’s Cafe and Diner is running a fundraiser to raise money to help get Jessie Simpson back home.

The then-18-year-old Simpson was attacked and beaten with an aluminum baseball bat by Kristopher Teichrieb as Simpson walked home from a grad party in June 2016. Simpson suffered permanent injuries and has required care ever since.

In October 2018, Teichrieb, then 41, was sentenced to seven years in prison after pleading guilty to aggravated assault, a charge that was reduced from the original count of attempted murder.

The fundraiser organized by Papa’s G’s is meant to raise money for Simpson’s mom, Sue, so she can upgrade her Savona home to accommodate her son’s return as he will need care for the rest of his life.

Beginning on July 13 and continuing for one month, Papa G’s is offering two large (12-inch) pepperoni or Hawaiian pizzas for $30, with $5 from every order going to the cause.

Papa G’s Cafe and Diner is downtown at 258 Victoria St. The eatery can be reached by phone at 778-471-4799.
