Pizza Nova and its partners tee off and drive to raise $56,887 in support of Villa Charities at company’s 27th annual golf fundraiser

TORONTO, June 12, 2024 – Pizza Nova and its partners took to the greens on June 11 to raise funds for Villa Charities as part of its annual charity summer golf event – and while the scores will remain on the course, the total funds raised came in higher than expected at $56,887.  

“We hoped to raise some dough, both in the kitchen and on the greens, and we drove it way over the goal,” said Domenic Primucci, president of Pizza Nova. “We could not be more grateful to our partners for their continued generosity and to Villa Charities for their critical work in the community.”

Held at the Station Creek Golf Club in Gormley, Ontario, the event was attended by more than 215 participants including franchisees, suppliers, partners, family members and friends. The funds raised will support the Villa Colombo Toronto long-term care home, which houses over 391 residents.

Pizza Nova’s partnership with Villa Charities spans over 26 years, during which time the company has raised more than $765,000 for the organization.

“These funds help us to enrich the lives of elderly Italo-Canadian citizens in our long-term care homes,” said Marco DeVuono, president and CEO of Villa Charities Inc. “The dedication we’ve seen from Pizza Nova and its partners over the years has been nothing short of inspirational and a true blessing to the people we help. Grazie mille!”
