Make your lunch count this month. Throughout June, the local family-owned and -operated Barro’s Pizza teamed up with Pepsi to funds for the Arizona Cancer Foundation for Children (ACFC), a local nonprofit whose mission is to help Arizona families with the high costs and challenging logistics of caring for their children during cancer treatment.

All 49 Barro's locations throughout Arizona will donate proceeds, up to $50,000, from the sale of any of their lunch specials, to ACFC.

This is the ninth year Barro's and Pepsi have joined forces for the cause.

“We look forward to this fundraiser every year,” says Ken Barro, co-owner of Barro’s Pizza. “Arizona Cancer Foundation for Children is instrumental in helping so many Arizona families during a very trying time. Thanks to our loyal customers, we’ve raised more than $261,000 to date and are excited to support them again this year.”

This current year marks the 10th anniversary for ACFC, which was founded by Chrisie Abramo after she lost her young daughter, Ava, to cancer. Abramo traveled the country seeking the best treatment and care for her daughter. Knowing the struggle and the financial toll that takes on a family, Abramo started ACFC to empower families by ensuring they have a secure place to live, access to medical treatment and continued support.
