Sacramento-based Pizza Guys has brought back its Raising Dough for a Cure campaign this October to raise money for breast cancer awareness.

A longtime partner of the American Cancer Society, Pizza Guys has raised more than $310,000 since 2014 and aims to raise an additional $35,000 or more this year.

Pizza Guys will donate $1 from every Raising Dough for a Cure deal sold during October. The deal includes two large two-topping pizzas. Proceeds will also be donated from every large pizza sold. Customers are able to donate both in-store and online.

Additionally, Pizza Guys’ large carryout boxes and team member uniforms will be pink for the entire month of October. The brand will also be the presenting sponsor of the Making Strides of Sacramento Walk taking place on Sunday, October 16, where they’ll give away free Pizza Guys merchandise and pizza cards to the public.

“Pizza Guys is proud to do our part to give back to the community in support of this cause,” said Shahpour Nejad, Pizza Guys’ CEO and co-founder. “We are excited to kick off our Raising Dough for a Cure Campaign and show our support for those affected by breast cancer. We hope we can encourage others to do the same.”

Pizza Guys was founded in 1986 and began franchising in 1994. The brand currently has more than 80 stores in three states.
