The leaders of the home Catholic dioceses for the Chicago Blackhawks and the Tampa Bay Lightning say the poor in both cities will win as a result of their Stanley Cup wager. Archbishop Blase Cupich had promised enough Chicago deep dish pizzas to feed the 300 guests of Pinellas Hope, a shelter for homeless people in Clearwater, Florida, if the Blackhawks lost. Bishop Robert Lynch offered to ship cases of fruit to St. Leo’s Residence for Veterans, a Catholic Charities ministry in Chicago, if the Lightning were defeated.

Archbishop Cupich and Marc Malnati, CEO of Lou Malnati’s Pizzeria, told news media that pizzas will be shipped to both Pinella’s Hope and to the St. Leo Residence as a way to celebrate the Blackhawks victory. Florida fruit also will be sent to both locations.
