Salvatore’s Pizza at the Donuts Delite location paired up with Special Touch Bakery on a exclusive donut-pie collaboration this week in efforts to raise money for Holy Childhood.
Donuts Delite introduced a Bumbleberry Pie Donut, using Special Touch Bakery’s pie filling and crumb topping in a Donuts Delite yeast-raised donut.
A total of $5,300 was raised for Holy Childhood, from July 7-12.
Established in 1946, Holy Childhood is a non-profit agency in Rochester, N.Y., which serves more than 200 people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, in its school program (ages 5-21).
“We hoped to sell 1,000 Bumbleberry Pie Donuts for Holy Childhood in a week; We DOUBLED that!” Salvatore SoccerSam Fantauzzo, CEO/Founder of Salvatore’s Pizzeria Brands said in a statement.
Fantauzzo also is owner of the Rochester Lancers, who competed in the Major Arena Soccer League, National Premier Soccer League and United Women’s Soccer.
“Thank you, Rochester!” said Ashley Maria King, president of business operations. “As requested by many customers, we will continue carrying the delicious Bumbleberry Pie Donut on our menu for the rest of the summer.”
Added Donuts Delight owner-operator Nick Semeraro: “My staff enjoyed working with Special Touch Bakery, and we are honored we could do something so incredible to raise awareness for Holy Childhood and raise over $5,000 for them!”
Salvatore’s Pizzeria is celebrating 42 years of business in Rochester throughout July. The company will continue efforts to raise additional monies for Holy Childhood and more local charities throughout the year.
