Taste of Italy to kick off Childhood Cancer Awareness Month for Friends of Scott Foundation

If you didn’t know already, September is Childhood Cancer Awareness month. Dave Bono, owner of Taste of Italy Restaurant in Carmel Valley, is teaming up with the Friends of Scott Foundation for Cancer Kids to help raise money for the nonprofit that offers programs and special events for children with cancer from Children’s Hospital and their families.

For the entire month of September, you can stop by the restaurant and make a donation and enter a chance to win one of three adorable, 53-inch stuffed and dressed up Teddy Bears. All proceeds go to the Friends of Scott Foundation for Cancer Kids. The organization was founded 10 years ago by Carmen Delgadillo, who lost her 14-year-old son, Scott, to this disease.  They also host the Unforgettable Prom for Cancer kids every year for the past six years and create a magical evening for those kids who can’t attend their own prom.

At the end of the month, on Sept. 29, from 3-5:30 p.m., Taste of Italy will be hosting a private Make Your Own Pizza Party and Craft Day for about 50-75 kids from the Children’s Hospital, where the winners of the bears raffle will be announced. That evening, bring your family to Taste of Italy and enjoy a discounted drink or meal with your family while a percentage of the proceeds will also go to the Foundation.  So come on out and show your support for kids with cancer.

Having fun at last year’s Pizza Party.
