Anthony’s Coal Fired Pizza Donates $42,700 to the Dan Marino Foundation

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. — Anthony’s Coal Fired Pizza celebrated the New Year with a “well done” charity donation. Anthony’s raised $42,700 during its annual holiday gift card program to benefit The Dan Marino Foundation, significantly surpassing the previous year’s $35,837 amount. Ten percent of all Anthony’s Coal Fired Pizza December gift card sales were donated to the Foundation to support programs for children, teens, and young adults with autism and other developmental disabilities.

Dan Marino is a partner with Anthony’s, the South Florida-based concept that uses authentic coal-burning ovens to create “well done pizza.”

“We love to give back to the community and support my friends Dan and Claire, who are doing work for a great cause,” said Anthony’s Coal Fired Pizza Founder and CEO Anthony Bruno. “This year, we raised a record amount for The Dan Marino Foundation and couldn’t have done it without our loyal fans.”

Known for its high energy atmosphere and simple menu, Anthony’s Coal Fired Pizza uses 800-degree coal burning ovens to create a “well done” taste. With a focus on fresh ingredients and authentic recipes, Anthony’s signature menu includes traditional and specialty pizzas with dough made fresh daily; coal oven roasted chicken wings; large homemade meatballs from a recipe passed down by Anthony’s grandmother; a classic Italian salad with original dressing; and Eggplant Marino (Dan’s favorite).
