Love good pizza? If you do, help Pizza Nova raise some dough for Variety – The Children’s Charity.

On Tuesday, May 11th, Pizza Nova and Variety will host their 11th Annual That’s Amore Pizza for Kids fundraising event. This year a record number of stores will be participating in this charitable event.

From 11:00 am to 9:00 pm, customers can walk into any of the 110+ participating locations across Southern Ontario and purchase a medium pepperoni pizza for only $4.99. Pizza Nova will donate $1 from each pizza sold to Variety – The Children’s Charity.

This year’s single-day goal is to raise over $80,000 to help fund Variety’s programs and services for children with special needs in Ontario. If this goal is met, it will bring the eleven-year fundraising total to over $750,000 for these deserving youth.
