Contact: Joan HermesSTERLING, IL (September 26, 2017) – Pizza and pink go hand in hand this October at the four Angelo’s Pizzeria locations in Sterling, Rock Falls and Dixon.
“Our plan is to donate $1.00 for every pizza sold at all four of our locations throughout the month of October to the CGH Health Foundation for their breast cancer program, “ said Michelle Hodge, operations manager for Angelo’s. “During the year, Angelo’s donates to many causes, but this cause is near and dear to our hearts. The Foundation has had a Women’s Cancer Prevention Program since 1993.”
Angelo’s has been a part of the Sterling/Rock Falls communities since the mid-1950s. They are a popular spot after sporting activities, for birthdays and other special events. The employees will be wearing special pink t-shirts throughout the month.
The CGH Health Foundation has been devoted to raising awareness about early detection of breast cancer for almost three decades, according to Joan Hermes, executive director of the Foundation. “We are thrilled and humbled that Angelo’s has chosen to partner with us in this important cause.”
The staff at Angelo’s is excited to begin their fundraiser, which will run from Oct. 1 through Oct. 31. “I think no matter who you are, someone you know and love has been affected by breast cancer,” said Hodge. “It might be your mother, sister, aunt, niece, or friend and you want to do everything you can to support them.”
Hodge added, “We know early detection is key and decided to partner with the CGH Health Foundation because the money stays here and will be used to benefit women in the Sauk Valley, whether it is for mammograms or other diagnostic testing. If Angelo’s contribution can help one person get an early diagnosis then it was a successful campaign.”
