Pizza for a Cure


by Rachel Perlow

We received this email from our friends at Franco’s Metro in Fort Lee:

We are taking part in the Susan G. Komen For a Cure Restaurant week event.  It is a week long event where Franco’s Metro will be donating a portion of each check to the fight against breast cancer and cancer awareness.  It is something that we are very passionate about, as Breast cancer has touched our friends & family in a number of ways.  Obviously, we want to make the largest donation possible in our inaugural year, but in order to do that, we need support from friends like you to help fill our seats all week long.

Together we can find a cure.

The First Annual New Jersey Restaurants for the Cure™ will benefit the North Jersey Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure®, which will run from Monday, September 29th through Sunday, October 5th. The weeklong breast health awareness and fund raising event will benefit Breast Cancer support, research and development at participating restaurants. Participating restaurants will feature a selection of menu items that will represent a donation of $1 per item to the North Jersey Affiliate.

It’s great to see local businesses participating in events like this. I hope you all consider going to Franco’s Metro and support the Komen organization by doing so.

Here’s a link to Jason’s previous post about Pizza in Fort Lee, NJ, page down for Franco’s coverage.

Other participating restaurants: Bazzarelli Ristorante in Moonachie, Bensi in Clifton, Hasbrouck Heights, Hillsdale, Moonachie, North Arlington, Paramus and Wayne, the Cornerstone in Hillsdale and the Ho-Ho-Kus Inn.

    I believe Prostate cancer is more pervasive, yet where are all the ribbons for this disease?

    Sounds like a pretty good idea to me. By the way, have you ever been to the Big Red Tomato in Fort Lee? They are a fantastic little Italian place that has been around FOREVER. We only go there before 6 pm. otherwise you have to wait for a table–virtually unheard of in Fort Lee. The calamari salad is amazing. I have daydreams about it. Also in the Plateau Avenue neighborhood is an interesting sandwich shop (across the street) called TASTeastery. The ingredients are organic, artisanal bread and all, fresh cooked the minute you order. It takes a bit longer for them to get your order ready than an average deli, but the wait is worth it. Okay I’m too hungry to write anymore–gotta get something to eat. Ciao!

    Enough with all the tie-ins for the Komen Run…….

    How about a 5K run and promotions for prostate cancer which kills more people.
