Katie's Pizza and Pasta Osteria to Host April Giveback Tuesday Event Benefiting Pedal the Cause

The event is slated for Tues., April 25.
    ST. LOUIS, MO, April 12, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Katie's Pizza and Pasta Osteria in Rock Hill is proud to announce their upcoming Giveback Tuesday event, which will benefit Pedal the Cause. The event is slated for Tues., April 25.

Every month, Katie's Pizza and Pasta Osteria features a local nonprofit charity and donates 100 percent of the earned proceeds from the entire day to the charity. Lunch, dinner, drinks, and carryout are all included. So far, Katie's Pizza and Pasta Osteria has donated more than $100,000 to local nonprofit organizations.

Funds raised from this Giveback Tuesday event will be used to fund groundbreaking cancer research at Siteman Cancer Center and St. Louis Children's Hospital.

"We will be presenting these funds to our beneficiaries on November 16," said Carrie Sweigart, Chief Operations Officer at Pedal the Cause. "Last year, we donated over $3.8 million for cancer research, and we hope to grow our contribution in 2017."

Since its inception in 2010, Pedal the Cause has made it their mission to fund research that will ultimately lead to a cure for all cancers. In total, they have donated $15.8 million to the Siteman Cancer Center and St. Louis Children's Hospital. These donations have funded 84 research projects to tackle and cure cancer.

"In the face of diminished federal funding where support typically gets funneled to already-proven concepts, many potentially new ideas are not deemed eligible," Sweigart continued. "Pedal the Cause donations 'seed' best-in-breed ideas to allow the cultivation of proof of concept and critical data. These projects often turn into groundbreaking results that lead to new treatments and cures, preventions, and early detection diagnoses.

Katie's Pizza and Pasta Osteria is open every day at 11 a.m. and features Happy Hour specials from 3 to 5 p.m. and 9 to 10 p.m. Carry-outs are also available.
