Pink Cannolis and Shirts at Brick Pizzeria for Breast Cancer Awareness Month
Brick Pizzeria has brought back the dainty pink cannoli this month. And it's all for a great cause!
According to Brick, it started with Pinkalicious. In mid-2015, the Zeiterion Theater hosted Pinkalicious the Musical and asked local partners if they could feature "anything pink" for the show.
Brick offered a Nutella pizza and came up with a version with pink cannoli cream instead of Nutella. Once the first one was ordered, the demand was never-ending.
They were just about to reintroduce the Pinkalicious pizza as a delicious way to help raise awareness and funds for breast cancer when they thought, "Why don't we try the pink cannoli cream in a... cannoli!?"
Every October, Brick donates $2 for every Pink Cannoli sold to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. As of September 2018, they have donated over $4,500 in total and hope to raise another $2,500 this year. If you would like to help them reach their goal, all you need to do is treat yourself or someone you love to a Pink Cannoli this month.
They are also donating 100% of the proceeds from Pink Cannoli t-shirts and a percentage of gift cards sold at their online store this October.
Brick is pacing slow and steady so far, but I'm sure they'll exceed their goal.
Brick Pizzeria Napoletana has three locations: Dartmouth, Fairhaven, and New Bedford.
