Anthony’s Coal Fired Pizza Pushes Wine Sales to Boost National Autism Awareness Month

#CheersForACause promo will raise money for the Dan Marino Foundation.




Anthony Bruno and his sister Maria are the driving force behind Anthony’s Coal-Fired Pizza, but former Miami Dolphins quarterback Dan Marino is also a partner.

 

Anthony’s Coal Fired Pizza restaurants are partnering with the Dan Marino Foundation to help individuals with autism and other developmental disabilities, the Ardmore Patch reports.

In observance of National Autism Awareness Month, Anthony’s will donate a portion of sales from every $6 glass and $20 bottle of Kendall-Jackson chardonnay wine to the foundation, which has served the needs of people with autism for more than 25 years.

To help spread the word about the promotion and National Autism Awareness Month, Anthony’s encourages customers to share photos of their dining experience on social media using the hashtag #CheersForACause.

Dan Marino, the former star quarterback for the Miami Dolphins, is a partner in Anthony’s Coal Fired Pizza, according to The Ardmore Patch. “Dan and Claire (Marino) have created an amazing foundation, and we’re thrilled to support their efforts again this April,” Anthony’s CEO Anthony Bruno said. “It’s a wonderful way for our fans to give back while enjoying one of America’s most popular chardonnays.”
