Team Max participants rewarded with pizza party

(WMC-TV) - Business and civic leader Gayle Rose hosted a "Back-to-School Pizza Party" at Incredible Pizza's Hickory Ridge Mall location Saturday. 

Over 100 kids who participated in Team Max's community service projects were there as reward for all their hard work.  The children ate free pizza, played plenty of games, and had a whole lotta' fun - just in time to re-energize the kids before school starts.

"They feel a sense of empowerment," said Rose.  "They feel like, well, it's not somebody else that's going to change the world its going to be me and all they have to do is go out and ask if I can help or organize a few of my friends and get out and do something."

Team Max is a community service organization Rose established in honor of her late son, Max Rose who was known and remembered for his community service.

Max was killed in a car accident in 2009.
