On Tuesday, Dec. 1, Barro’s Pizza will host the ninth annual Doran Barro Holiday Hunger Fight benefiting St. Mary’s Food Bank. From open to close at all 44 locations across the Valley, the Barro family will donate 100% of the proceeds from all sales to help those in Arizona facing hard times during the holidays.
“This has been an incredibly tough year for so many in our community, so this year’s event means that much more,” said Mike Barro, co-owner of Barro’s Pizza. Last year, Barro’s Pizza set a record raising more than $260,000 for St. Mary’s Food Bank, and Barro’s is hoping to set a new record this year.
