Babbo Italian Eatery supports pancreatic cancer research while celebrating the official grand opening of its Goodyear location.
On Saturday April 7, he will donate 100% of the profits to the Seena Magowitz Foundation. Plus, the family business will match donations earned dollar for dollar. Donations will also be matched by Roger Magowitz, Founder and CEO of the Seena Magowitz Foundation.
“The Seena Magowitz Foundation is an incredible organization that seeks to raise awareness about pancreatic cancer and help extend the quality of life for people with this disease by investing in research and amplifying its message,” said Ken Pollack, owner of Babbo Italian Eatery.
“Their mission is important to our entire family, and we are very proud to partner with them on April 7 – and beyond.”
The work of the Seena Magowitz Foundation aims to empower the public with knowledge on how to reduce the risk of contracting pancreatic cancer, as well as raising funds for innovative scientific medical research, with the ultimate hope of eradicating disease.
This Babbo location, the company’s eighth, had a soft opening in November, but April 7 is the grand opening.
“We are a modern take on Italian cuisine,” says Taylor Schultz, spokesperson for Babbo Italian Eatery. “We have traditional recipes, but we are always adding new things to our menu. Over the past four years we have changed a few items, added protein bowls and different menu items. »
Other novelties include zoodles, a “healthier version of noodle pasta”; the simple Babbo salad with romaine lettuce, red onions, pomodoro tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, basil, croutons and balsamic vinaigrette; and Lemon Garlic Spaghettini with lemon, garlic, garlic butter, basil, red pepper flakes and topped with shaved parmesan and basil.
