Enjoy a Pizza, Help Cancer Patients

Cugino Forno will donate 10 percent of proceeds to the patient assistance fund at Cone Health Cancer Center.

For many people with cancer, the diagnosis is just the beginning. Questions follow such as, “How do I make ends meet when I miss so much work?”

The patient assistance fund at the Cone Health Cancer Center helps. On Jan. 31, Cugino Forno invites area residents to donate to help those afflicted by such difficult circumstances. 

Ten percent of the Jan. 31 proceeds go to the Patient Assistance Fund at Cone Health Cancer Center. The fund helps cancer patients who otherwise would not be able to afford the basic items needed in their care. “We are about authenticity at Cugino Forno,” says Joseph Ozbey, one of the three cousins who opened the pizzeria. “Our ingredients are fresh from Italy and even our pizza ovens are made in Italy.  An important part of Italian culture is community. For our family at Cugino Forno, this is a great way to help those during the most trying period of their life.” 

“People shouldn’t have to worry about keeping the lights on or how they are going to get to the cancer center for the dozens of treatments sometimes required. The patient assistance fund makes a difference,” says Skip Hislop, vice president, oncology services, Cone Health Cancer Center. “And I can’t think of a tastier way to support the fund and those who need it.” 

Cugino Forno has a menu of pizza, salads and pastries true to Italian traditions. The restaurant is at 1160 Revolution Mill Dr. in Greensboro. It will be open from 11 am until 9 pm or until the freshly made, hand tossed pizza dough runs out.  You can call 336-897-7920 for carry out.
