Anthony’s Coal Fired Pizza to Honor Mike Eruzione with “Well Done” Award
Anthony’s Coal Fired Pizza, a casual dining concept that uses authentic 800-degree coal-burning ovens to create “well done pizza,” will honor 1980 U.S. Olympic Hockey captain Mike Eruzione with its signature “Well Done” Award.
Anthony’s “Well Done” Award honors individuals who have demonstrated outstanding service, loyalty and devotion to their communities. The award will be presented to Eruzione on Tuesday, Aug. 18 from 7 to 9 p.m. at the new Anthony’s Westwood restaurant, located at 119 University Avenue in University Station. Fifty percent of the evening’s restaurant sales will be donated to Winthrop Charities, an organization Eruzione founded in 2000.
Widely recognized for leading the underdog U.S. team to the gold medal and scoring the winning goal in the “Miracle on Ice” game, Eruzione is Director of Special Outreach at his alma mater, Boston University.
“Mike is an icon and it’s an honor for us to celebrate his achievements and dedication to the Boston area,” said restaurant founder/CEO Anthony Bruno. “It’s amazing that he’s still helping perform miracles 35 years later.”
Recently, Winthrop Charities has been a major financial supporter of the Winthrop High School cheerleading team, which won a national championship title.
“It is an honor to be presented with the ‘Well Done’ Award,” said Eruzione. “The Boston community has given so much to me over the years, so it’s rewarding to be able to continue to give back to them.”
