Barro’s Pizza Gives $40,000 to support Arizona Cancer Foundation for Children Telethon
Barro’s Pizza did their part once again to help Arizona families affected by pediatric cancer. On Tues., Apr. 4, 2023, Arizona Cancer Foundation for Children (ACFC) held a telethon in partnership with KPNX Ch. 12, raising more than $75,000 and Barro’s Pizza donated $40,000 to the cause.
“This organization does such amazing work in our community, helping families that have a child with cancer,” said Mike Barro co-owner of Barro’s Pizza. “We can’t even imagine what these families are going through. As a father myself, it’s just heartbreaking. Each June, for the last seven years, we’ve hosted a fundraiser for Arizona Cancer Foundation for Children, but we wanted to do more. So, when this opportunity was presented to us, we jumped at the chance.”
Additionally, for the eighth year, throughout the month of June all Arizona Barro’s Pizza locations will donate proceeds, up to $40,000, from the sale of any lunch special to ACFC, a local nonprofit whose mission is to help Arizona families with the high costs and challenging logistics while caring for their children undergoing cancer treatment.
“We are so grateful for Barro’s Pizza’s continued support,” said Chrisie Funari president and founder of Arizona Cancer Foundation for Children. They have been so generous over the last seven years so their additional support for our first telethon meant the world to us. We are also looking forward to the upcoming fundraiser that they do each June. We really can’t thank them enough!”
