Uncle Maddio’s Pizza Joint doesn’t just "serve with love" inside their restaurants but in their communities as well. In celebration of the Atlanta 2-Day Walk for Breast Cancer, Uncle Maddio’s Atlanta-area restaurants donated 15 percent of sales from September 7, 2014, and $1 from each pink wristband sold to local breast cancer programs in Georgia. The total amount of money donated was over $4,000.00.
The restaurant partnered with It’s The Journey Inc., producers of the Atlanta 2-Day Walk, to bring restaurant employees, leadership and guests together to support local Georgians battling breast cancer. Sales from the restaurants’ pizzas, paninis, salads and beverages were donated directly to Atlanta 2-Day Walk teams local to each restaurant. Atlanta Uncle Maddio’s employees also participated in the Atlanta 2-Day Walk for Breast Cancer held on October 11-12, 2014.
“Atlanta is Uncle Maddio’s home base and we have strong connections to the local communities across the state,” said Matt Andrew, Uncle Maddio’s founder and CEO. “Many of us in the Uncle Maddio’s family have been directly affected by breast cancer, and we are honored to be a part of the fight to end the disease and support breast cancer programs in Georgia.”
Atlanta Uncle Maddio’s restaurants continue to support October Breast Cancer Awareness Month and are raising additional money to be donated to Georgia cancer programs. Guests can participate by purchasing pink Uncle Maddio’s bracelets at participating locations all month long.
