Pizza Nova reimagines annual ‘That’s Amore Pizza for Kids’ fundraiser to support Ontario charity


Toronto – Pizza Nova’s annual “That’s Amore Pizza for Kids” fundraiser is encouraging customers to add a dip to their pizza order online and help support Variety the Children’s Charity of Ontario.

“In spite of the ongoing challenges brought on by COVID-19, we are executing our event in a way that will not only involve our customers and raise money for the kids, but will also continue to keep our communities safe,” said Domenic Primucci, president of Pizza Nova. “This year, during the month of May, 50 cents from every dip sold will be donated to Variety, the Children’s Charity of Ontario.”

Variety Ontario prides itself on enriching the lives of thousands of children living with physical and mental disabilities by providing an accessible facility at Variety Village, specialized programs, dedicated staff, and a community in which everyone is equal and welcome. Over the past 20 years, Pizza Nova has raised over $1.6 million and community awareness for the charity.

“Now more than ever, kids with a disability need our support,” said Karen Stintz, Variety Ontario president and chief executive officer. “Before the pandemic, 52 per cent of children with a disability reported they had no friends. Now, these kids are even more at risk and our families are struggling financially. Pizza Nova’s commitment throughout the month of May will make sure kids can still play well into the future.”
