October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and Angelina’s Pizzeria is happy to announce that our guests can contribute to The Breast Cancer Fundraiser with every visit. All proceeds from the pink Cannoli in October will benefit The Breast Cancer Fundraiser. Supporting at Angelina’s is especially sweet thanks to our limited-edition Pink Strawberry Cannoli.
The Breast Cancer Fundraiser
About 1 in 8 women will develop invasive breast cancer in her life. That comes out to around 266,120 new cases of invasive breast cancer expected to be diagnosed in the United States this year alone. It is a very prevalent, very serious disease and many survivors will need some kind of outside assistance.
The Breast Cancer Fundraiser started 15 years ago in Orange County. They grew from small gatherings into a national movement and, in 2011, they officially became recognized as a nonprofit public charity. The group provides resources for newly-diagnosed breast cancer patients, helping them to navigate through the stress and other issues that come with the diagnosis.
The Cannoli – A Perfect Ending for Your Meal
One of the best ways to finish off an Italian meal, cannoli originated in Sicily and have been enjoyed by Italians for many, many years. The tube-shaped pastries come in a wide range of sizes and are filled with a sweet and creamy ricotta cheese, much different from any cheese you’ve had before.
The addition of fresh strawberries adds a new level of flavor and color to the traditional dessert, one that you won’t find in many places. The bright pink hue clashes wonderfully with the dark brown shell and the clean plate beneath it, creating not only a delicious dish but a beautiful one as well.
Worried about being too full from all the delicious pizza? The airiness of the ricotta cheese makes each cannoli relatively light and our cannoli are crafted to be the perfect size for adding just a little bit of a sweet touch to the end of your meal.
