Today, on Stand Up To Cancer Day, we’re taking a look back at the history of the Lou Malnati’s Cancer Research Fund.
Starting in 1971, Lou and Jean Malnati hosted their first annual charity event to raise a scholarship fund for a local athlete that would play football at Wake Forest University, in the name of famous Chicago Bear Brian Piccolo, who passed away from cancer. After Lou also fell victim to cancer in 1978, Jean transformed this dinner into the Lou Malnati’s Cancer Research Benefit.
The benefit will take place on Saturday, September 23rd at the Meadows Club in Rolling Meadows. All proceeds from the event benefit:
Donations to the Lou Malnati’s Cancer Research Fund can be made at any Lou Malnati’s pizzeria or online at www.lmcb.org. Sponsorships, raffle tickets, and tickets to the event are also available for purchase online.
Questions about the benefit? Leave a comment or contact us – we would love to hear from you.
We are excited to announce that our Park Ridge pizzeria is now open at 11am every day for carryout, delivery, and catering!
We look forward to satisfying all of your lunchtime pizza cravings!
What goes on at a Lou Malnati’s Company Picnic?
The picnic is a day where our entire Chicagoland team (our Phoenix team enjoyed their picnic in May!) comes together for a day of fun. We start it off with a soccer tournament, winner gets bragging rights for the year, and each store designs a team t-shirt that shows off their creativity and team spirit. There’s family fun games and entertainment, and of course, food.
We appreciate your understanding as we continue this tradition.
