Fort Lauderdale, Fla. – This holiday season, give the gift of coal… an Anthony’s Coal Fired Gift Card that is, and give back at the same time.

Beginning November 15, Anthony’s Coal Fired Pizza is again donating 10 percent of all holiday gift card sales to The Dan Marino Foundation. For over 25 years, the Foundation has been a leader in innovation and change, “empowering individuals with autism and other developmental disabilities.”

Last year, Anthony’s raised $50,000 for the Foundation during its annual holiday gift card donation program, significantly surpassing 2014’s $42,700 donation amount. Anthony’s, a big believer in giving back to the community, plans to surpass last year’s number and continue to raise awareness for this great cause.

“Dan and Claire have made a wonderful impact through their foundation, and we are so proud to be supporting them once again,” said Anthony’s Coal Fired Pizza founder and CEO Anthony Bruno. “Our customers love being able to share Anthony’s gift cards with friends, family and co-workers, while also making a difference in the community.”

NFL Hall of Fame legend Dan Marino is a partner in Anthony’s Coal Fired Pizza, the South Florida-based concept that uses authentic coal-burning ovens to create “well done pizza.”

From November 15 through December 31, customers who spend $100 – $499 in gift cards receive a bonus gift card valued at ten percent of their purchase. Customers who spend $500 or more receive a 20 percent bonus card. Gift cards are available for purchase and redeemable at any of Anthony’s locations and do not expire. They can also be purchased online at www.acfp.com.

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 signature dressing; and Eggplant Marino (one of Dan’s favorites).

The brand has been lauded by fans and media for its great food and service. In 2015, Anthony’s was chosen Best Pizza, Best Wings and Best Meatballs for the second consecutive year in the Sun Sentinel/SouthFlorida.com Best of South Florida readers’ poll.

Anthony’s was declared “The Best Pizza Chain in America” by USA Today’s Great American Bites 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 Pizza” and “Most Popular” in Zagat’s America’s Top Restaurants edition.

Anthony’s Coal Fired Pizza has 60 locations throughout Florida, New York, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Delaware. For more information, visit www.acfp.com.
