Hungry Howie's Pizza launches breast cancer awareness campaign

September 27, 2012 

Hungry Howie’s Pizza restaurants launch a Love, Hope & Pizza campaign in October to raise awareness for breast cancer. For every pizza purchased, Hungry Howie’s will make a donation to the National Breast Cancer Foundation. October pizzas will be served in bright pink boxes emblazoned with breast cancer awareness ribbons. Customers may add a $1 donation to their Hungry Howie’s order, which will go directly to the National Breast Cancer Foundation. Those participating will receive a pink Love, Hope & Pizza wristband bracelet as a token of appreciation.

Through October, Hungry Howie’s will also make a donation to the foundation for every new Facebook fan, for every breast cancer story fans share on the Hungry Howie’s Facebook page and for every tweet using the hashtag #lovehopepizza. Free pizzas will be given away via social media promotions on three days throughout October. Find the Facebook page at and the Twitter page at

Hungry Howie’s has raised almost $500,000 for the foundation over the last three years. For their fourth year in the campaign, Hungry Howie’s hopes to raise $250,000.

“The Love, Hope & Pizza campaign has become something we are known for in the restaurant and franchising industries and we are so proud of what we have accomplished over the last several years,” said Jeff Rinke, vice president of marketing, in a news release. “It’s not only something that our employees and franchise owners look forward to every year, but it’s also an event our customers anticipate. So many Americans are affected by breast cancer and we are happy to recognize National Breast Cancer Awareness Month with Love, Hope & Pizza.”
