TORONTO, May 6 /CNW/ - On May 11, Pizza Nova and Variety Village will hold their 11th annual "That's Amore Pizza for Kids" fundraiser. From 11:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. customers can walk into any participating Pizza Nova location in Ontario and purchase a delicious medium pepperoni pizza for just $4.99 including tax. One dollar from each pizza will be donated to Variety Village in support of programs for children with disabilities.

"Pizza Nova has been very supportive of our mission to provide opportunities in sport, fitness and life skills for children with disabilities," says John Willson, CEO of Variety Village. "In the past 11 years, 'That's Amore Pizza for Kids' has raised over $750,000."

The success of this annual event would not be possible without the continued and enthusiastic support of the Pizza Nova franchise owners and their staff, as well as the thousands of customers across Ontario who purchase pizzas during this one-day event.
