$201,727 Reasons To Smile

During the COVID-19 pandemic, there haven’t been many things to be happy about, but, yesterday, June 15, 2021, Pizza Nova gave the Variety – the Children’s Charity of Ontario reasons to smile. Pizza Nova presented Variety with a cheque for $201,727. Charles Taerk, board chair, plans to honour the Primucci family, the owners of Pizza Nova, by renaming the lobby at Variety Village “The Primucci Pavilion”. Toronto Mayor John Tory acknowledged Pizza Nova and the family’s contribution with an official letter: “This is certainly a well-deserved honour. It’s because of city-builders, such as yourself, that communities thrive and kids play. Thank you for your leadership.”

Karen Stintz, president and CEO of Variety, noted, “This year’s ‘That’s Amore Pizza for Kids’ was an incredible success. Throughout the month of May, ¢.50 for every dip sold at Pizza Nova was donated to Variety to help ensure that kids with a disability have a chance to play and build life skills. The campaign resulted in a record-breaking donation of $201,727 and increased awareness of the important work that Variety does. The Primucci Pavilion at Variety Village will highlight the incredible partnership between Pizza Nova and Variety, as well as the legacy of support that Domenic, president of Pizza Nova, and his family have provided to kids in communities throughout Ontario. The Variety team thanks the Pizza Nova team for their ongoing commitment and dedication.”

An emotional Domenic Primucci thanked Variety as he bumped elbows with Variety Brand Ambassador Madi Ambos and said, “It’s so wonderful to see what our support has and will continue to do for children with disabilities. I am very touched and very appreciative of this kind gesture. We do this for the kids. They represent the future. Without them, there is no laughter or joy. I want to thank Variety for all that you do. You are very special to Pizza Nova and we look forward to continuing to support such a great cause.”
