Salt Lake-area Pizza Hut restaurants say Tuesday is Rick Homer's day.

Homer, 38, is waiting for a heart transplant operation. His wife works for Pizza Hut, and her colleagues are backing a fund-raising effort for the operation.The restaurant will donate $3 for every pizza sold on Tuesday to Homer's transplant fund. An anonymous donor has pledged to match funds raised by Pizza Hut up to $30,000.

The Cottonwood Pizza Hut will host a benefit breakfast on Saturday, March 2, from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m., complete with the raffle of a year's worth of pizza. And individual Pizza Hut restaurants will sponsor fund-raising activities until Homer has the $150,000 for the life-saving operation.
