Avalanche Pizza is offering a Slice of Hope

On October 7th, We will donate 10 percent of our sales on Friday, Oct. 7th to the Karen Mullen Breast Cancer Foundation, a national charity based in Seattle.

Slice of Hope, a pizza industry charitable initiative, has banded together pizzerias from across the nation in an effort to fight this invasive disease, which will impact hundreds of thousands of women and men.. In fact, more than 190,000 new cases of breast cancer will be diagnosed this year. And, sadly, approximately 40,000 women will die from the disease this year. That’s approximately 110 breast cancer deaths daily, and we think that’s simply too many.

It’s hard to find someone who hasn’t been affected by breast cancer in some way or another. Our company wants to do something to help end this disease. That’s why we’ve joined Slice of Hope and will be donating 10 percent of our sales on Friday, Oct. 7. So please come down to Avalanche that night to show your support of this cause.”
