Proceeds from sales to be directed to children’s health research
This holiday season, Pizza Nova will offer its 60th anniversary tote bag, featuring the brand’s renowned “Ciao” greeting, to help raise funds for SickKids Foundation. Retailing at $15.99 per bag, Pizza Nova will donate a portion of proceeds toward the goal of raising $15,000 for health and scientific advancements to improve the lives of children and their families in Canada and around the world. This is the second annual fundraiser the company has organized for the hospital. In 2022, Pizza Nova launched a memorable Vespa tree ornament, which attained its goal of raising the same amount.
“Supporting our local communities has been a priority of ours since day one,” says Domenic Primucci, president of Pizza Nova. “We’re honoured to be a part of SickKids’ community of supporters – helping it serve the needs of children from the GTA, Ontario and around the world.”
Supporting the community continues to be a core value for the company, deeply ingrained in both its business ethos and customers’ values. While Pizza Nova has worked for six decades to ensure customers “Taste the Difference,” the company has equally strived to “Make a Difference” within the community by giving back.
“As we embark on the second year of our partnership, we are thrilled to witness the evolution of pediatric care through the launch of Precision Child Health (PCH),” says Stacey Robinson, director of cause marketing at SickKids Foundation. “This marks a pivotal step towards our vision of ‘Heal the Future.’ SickKids is honoured to have Pizza Nova as our partner, and their commitment is a testament to their unwavering support for improving children’s health and supporting the community.”
The company invites everyone to be part of this holiday event by visiting a local Pizza Nova or www.pizzanova.com to purchase a tote bag that carries more than just goods; but also renewed hope for children.
