TAMPA, FLORIDA, USA, October 18, 2023 /EINPresswire.com/ — Hungry Howie’s, famous for creating the iconic original flavored crust pizza, is celebrating its 15th year of LOVE, HOPE & PIZZA. The annual campaign is dedicated to raising funds and awareness for the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF). Since the campaign launched, Hungry Howie’s has raised over $4 million dollars to support survivors and those currently battling breast cancer by donating a portion of sales from its iconic Flavored Crust pizzas. This year, the company is striving to reach $5 million dollars in donations by October 30.
Each October during their Love, Hope & Pizza initiative, Hungry Howie’s serves its famous Flavored Crust pizzas in bright pink boxes embossed with the NBCF logo. For every pizza purchased in a pink box during Love, Hope & Pizza, Hungry Howie’s makes a donation to the NBCF. Customers can make an additional contribution to NBCF during checkout by rounding up their bill to the next dollar or making a $1, $5, or $10 donation.
‘Women affected by breast cancer are our mothers, daughters, sisters, co-workers and customers,” comments Tom Kazbour, Chief Operating Officer for Hungry Howie’s of Florida. “We are very passionate about supporting these women and this year hope to break the milestone of $5 million in donations to the National Breast Cancer Foundation.”
There are approximately 264,000 cases of breast cancer diagnosed in women in the U.S. each year. Studies show that 1 in every 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. There are over 3.8 million breast cancer survivors currently in the United States.
