Mystic — Mango’s Wood-Fired Pizza Co. and Deviant Donuts, both located in Olde Mistick Village, are hosting a monthlong fundraiser in which they will donate a portion of sales to Mystic Aquarium.

The aquarium, which is closed due to COVID-19, has had to lay off some of its employees. The two restaurants have remained open for takeout and delivery.

During April, $2 of every sale of regularly priced pizza will be donated to the aquarium, while this Thursday through Sunday, $1 from sales of any of the “Under the Sea” themed donuts will be donated. Deviant Donuts is a small-batch gourmet donut pop-up shop located in its sister shop, Vault Coffee Roasters.

Customers can pre-order donuts by contacting Vault Coffee at (860) 415-5045. A minimum of six donuts are required for pre-orders.

Mango’s and Deviant Donuts are practicing social distancing guidelines and allowing a maximum of five people in at a time.

“For the past 10 years the Mystic Aquarium and their visitors have played a large role in our success. And during this difficult time, we’re committing to pay it forward,” owner Stefan Ambrosch said.
