Anthony’s Coal Fired Pizza will support October Breast Cancer Awareness Month by donating 50 percent of Castronovo Wine sales to Dolphins Cycling Challenge’s “Team Gina.” The tri-county fundraiser includes Castronovo’s Montepulciano d'Abruzzo red wine and Pecorino white wine sales at all 16 Anthony’s South Florida locations.
Team Gina is led by breast cancer survivor Gina Castronovo, wife of Paul Castronovo, host of Big 105.9’s Paul & Young Ron Show and owner of Castronovo Wines.
Team Gina was formed in 2010 as part of the Dolphins Cycling Challenge (DCC), a two-day tri-county charity cycling event aiming to increase cancer awareness, encourage healthy hobbies, and raise funds for the University of Miami Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center. In 2011, DCC raised $1,070,000 for Sylvester, more than doubling the funds raised in the 2010 inaugural ride. The DCC has donated over $1.6 million to Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center since 2010.
Known for its high-energy atmosphere and signature menu items, Anthony’s Coal Fired Pizza uses 800-degree anthracite coal-burning ovens and the highest quality ingredients. Anthracite is known to be the “cleanest” of coals, burning smoke free with extremely high heat to create a unique taste and perfect pies. In addition to its famous pizzas, the restaurant’s simple and consistent menu features award-winning “Italian Soul Food” creations including coal-oven-roasted chicken wings with caramelized onions, pork ribs with vinegar peppers, home-style meatballs made from a family recipe and Eggplant Marino (named for Anthony’s partner and Hall of Fame football legend Dan Marino).
