Ermanno's Legendary Pizza (Louisville and North Canton) is offering breast cancer patients across the country a Slice of Hope by helping to raise critical funding for breast cancer research by donating 10 percent of their sales from Friday, Oct. 12 to the Karen Mullen Breast Cancer Foundation, a national charity based in Seattle.
October 12th has been designated as a National Pizza Party Day by Slice of Hope, a pizza industry charitable initiative. Slice of Hope has banded together pizzerias from across the nation in an effort to fight this invasive disease, which will impact hundreds of thousands of women and men this year. In fact, more than 190,000 new cases of breast cancer will be diagnosed this year. And, sadly, approximately 40,000 women will die from the disease this year. That’s approximately 110 breast cancer deaths daily.
Ermanno's Legendary Pizza wants to do something to help end this disease. That’s why we’ve joined Slice of Hope and will be donating 10 percent of our sales (Plus all donations and in-house tips) on Friday, October 12. Please help us play a small part in this very big problem.
Slice of Hope is spearheaded by Pizza Today magazine editor Jeremy White. White, Pizza Today publisher Pete Lachapelle and a small team of cyclists will bike from Lakeland, FL, to Naples, FL, Oct. 9-12 to raise awareness for Slice of Hope’s fight against breast cancer. On Oct. 12, pizzerias across the nation — including Ermanno's Legendary Pizza — will donate funds to the Karen Mullen Breast Cancer Foundation, which has committed to giving 100 percent of the Slice of Hope proceeds to a handful of the nation’s leading breast cancer research labs.
