Pizza Nova has announced a donation of $61,500 to Villa Charities, an organization that works to enrich lives through services that honour Italian culture and heritage. The funds will go to support the Villa Colombo Toronto long-term care home. Pizza Nova’s 26th annual golf tournament fundraiser took place at the Station Creek Golf Club in Gormley, Ontario on June 5, 2023, with over 230 guests in attendance, including franchisees, suppliers, partners, family and friends.
“Each year, our annual golf fundraiser allows the Pizza Nova family to come together and support worthy causes as a community,” said Domenic Primucci, president of Pizza Nova. “We are grateful to our partners for their continued generosity and to Villa Charities for the work they do to support the community and honour Italian heritage.”
As the company celebrates 60 years in business, Pizza Nova also celebrates over 25-year partnership with Villa Charities. Over the years, the company has raised over $710,000 for Villa Charities.
“I am thrilled that Pizza Nova has selected Villa Charities as the beneficiary of their premier golf event,” said Marco DeVuono, President and CEO, Villa Charities Inc. “The funds raised through this tournament will help further Villa Charities’ mission of enriching lives through experiences and services that honour Italian culture and heritage by supporting key strategic priorities at our Villa Colombo Toronto long-term care home.”
“We are so proud that after 60 years, Pizza Nova can still bring the community together to support such important organizations,” said Sam Primucci, who founded Pizza Nova in 1963. “After completing our 24th annual ‘That’s Amore Pizza for Kids’ fundraiser event, it is so special to come together for our 26th annual charity golf tournament to do even more for our communities.”
