Tutta Bella Neapolitan Pizzeria is offering breast cancer patients a Slice of Hope by donating 20 percent of sales Friday to the Karen Mullen Breast Cancer Foundation, a national charity based in Seattle.
Tutta Bella operates restaurants in Issaquah and Seattle.
Slice of Hope unites pizzerias across the nation to fight breast cancer. Funds raised across the country support the nation’s leading breast cancer researchers, including those at UW Medicine and Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center.
“Tutta Bella wants to help end this disease,” Tutta Bella founder Joe Fugere said in a statement. “That’s why from now until the Oct. 12 event we will match dollar for dollar up to $5,000 for any donations made at Tutta Bella in addition to donating 20 percent of sales on Oct. 12.”
Fugere agreed to match each donation up to $5,000.
“Last year we contributed over $20,000 to the Slice of Hope event. We hope to beat that this year!” he said.
