A $3,250 dollar order of pizza and soda was delivered late Thursday night to the Towers Lobby, purchased by an anonymous giver. “I couldn’t believe it”, alum Daniel Umanzio says.
While playing the League of Legends online, Vanguard alum Mathias Anderson got a message from another gamer asking, “Do you like pizza?” Umanzio was watching his friends play twitch video games when the mystery gamer messaged Anderson. They responded yes. They where then asked for their zip code. Moments later, the gamer said told them he had just ordered them 100 boxes of Domino’s pizza. Shortly after, Umanzio and Anderson found themselves picking up a close to 200 boxes of pizza and 300 bottles of soda.
Umanzio and Anderson where a bit skeptical, but when they showed up to Domino’s, “they actually had the pizza.” The 16-year-old, mystery gamer also tipped the pizza guy $400.
Volunteers Umanzio, Timothy Sumida, T.J. Burke, Aubrey Myers and Brandon Hood drove to transfer the pizzas and sodas to the Towers Lobby where a crowd of hungry Vanguardians waited. Umanzio text some friends about the oncoming delivery.
“Seeing everybody’s face in the lobby when we showed up was the best part” he says.
