Anthony’s Coal Fired Pizza donated $18,500 on Tuesday, November 17 to the Dolphin’s Cycling Challenge “Team Paul and Young Ron” in support of Breast Cancer Awareness.

Throughout October the dynamic duo of Paul and Young Ron visited Anthony’s locations in South Florida to meet and greet fans and enjoy a slice of pizza. During their visits, five percent of all the purchases made were tallied up to be donated to the Dolphin’s Cycling Challenge “Team Paul and Young Ron”.

The partnership is part of an ongoing commitment Anthony’s and the Team have to breast cancer awareness and breast cancer survivor, Gina Castronovo, wife of Big 105.9’s Paul Castronovo.

The Dolphin Cycling Challenge is a two-day tri-county charity cycling event to increase cancer awareness, encourage healthy hobbies, and raise funds for the University of Miami Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center.

With this year’s donation, Anthony’s has now raised more than $80,500 to support Gina Castronovo and her Dolphins Cycling Challenge team.

Since the opening of the first Anthony’s Coal Fired Pizza in 2002, the brand has been lauded by fans and media for its great food and service. In 2015, Anthony’s was chosen Best Pizza, Best Wings and Best Meatballs for the second consecutive year in the Sun Sentinel/SouthFlorida.com Best of South Florida readers’ poll. In recognizing Anthony’s, the Sun Sentinel noted: “It’s all served with great attention to detail. They get it right.”

Not only that, Anthony’s was chosen for best pizza by the Miami Herald, Miami.com, Palm Beach Post and WFLA’s iHeart Tampa Bay. The brand was also featured in the New York Times and has received rave reviews from Newsday. Anthony’s food and service continually are ranked “very good to excellent” by Zagat Survey, the distinguished dining and entertainment ratings guide, and is voted “Top 5 Most Popular” and “#1 Pizza” in Zagat’s America’s Top Restaurants edition.

“We visited Florida in February 2013 and upon landing in Ft. Lauderdale, we stopped for lunch at Anthony’s Runway 84. During our 9 day stay, we had Anthony’s Coal Fired Pizza and [went] back to dinner at Anthony’s Runway 84 just before departing from Ft. Lauderdale Airport. You are to be complimented because growing up Italian, we never ordered meatballs outside, but we tried yours for an appetizer and have had them several times.”
