Anthony’s Coal Fired Pizza Raises $15,000 for Dolphins Cycling Challenge’s Team Gina to Support Breast Cancer Awareness Month
FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. — Anthony’s Coal Fired Pizza showed its support for Breast Cancer Awareness Month by raising $15,000 for Dolphins Cycling Challenge’s Team Gina, which is led by breast cancer survivor Gina Castronovo, wife of Big 105.9’s Paul & Young Ron Show host Paul Castronovo.
Anthony’s donated five percent of sales to Team Gina every Tuesday in October from its 18 South Florida locations. Paul supported the initiative with appearances, alongside Gina, friends and family, at various Anthony’s locations.
Team Gina was formed in 2010 as part of the Dolphins Cycling Challenge (DCC), a two-day tri-county charity cycling event aiming to increase cancer awareness, encourage healthy hobbies, and raise funds for the University of Miami Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center.
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 daily and stretched to order; fresh 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 (a favorite of NFL Hall of Fame legend and restaurant partner Dan Marino).
Anthony’s Coal Fired Pizza was voted Best Pizzeria, Best Wings, Best Meatballs and Best Service in the 2014 Sun Sentinel/SouthFlorida.com Best of South Florida readers’ poll, and has been chosen Best Pizza by the Miami Herald, Miami.com, Palm Beach Post and WFLA’s iHeart Tampa Bay. The Brand was featured in the New York Times and has received rave reviews from Newsday. Anthony’s food and service continually are ranked “very good to excellent” by Zagat Survey, the distinguished dining and entertainment ratings guide, and is voted “Top 5 Most Popular” and “#1 Pizza” in Zagat’s America’s Top Restaurants edition.
