Fazoli’s Debuts Fab Five, Raises Funds For Cancer

Fazoli’s launches its second-annual breast cancer awareness fundraiser on September 30, 2013. At the same time, it begins a five-entrée limited-time offer dubbed the “Fab Five.”

During October, Breast Cancer Awareness Month, each sale of Pink Lemon Ice for $1.99 will generate a donation to the National Breast Cancer Foundation. The organization's mission is to save lives by increasing awareness of breast cancer through education and by providing mammograms for those in need.

Fazoli's hopes to raise more than $15,000 for the foundation.

"Breast cancer awareness is an important cause to Fazoli's guests, the majority of whom are women," says Cathy Hull, Fazoli's chief marketing officer. "Since the disease affects the entire family—not just a person—it is fitting that our family-oriented restaurants help in its prevention."

Pink Lemon Ice is available at participating Fazoli's locations until November 3 or while supplies last.

Also beginning September 30 is Fazoli's Fab Five, a collection of hearty and robust Italian dishes that stay true to their culinary inspirations.

The Zesty Penne Bolognese Bake features oven-baked penne topped with meat sauce, Italian ham, crushed red peppers, shredded Mozzarella and Provolone cheeses, and a cheese spice blend for $4.99.

The Tuscan Sausage Basil Bake combines oven-baked bowtie pasta with marinara sauce, basil pesto drizzle, caramelized sliced Italian sausage, broccoli, shredded Mozzarella and Provolone cheeses, and a cheese spice blend for $5.99.

Chicken Marsala Fettuccine takes fettuccine and tops it with Marsala sauce, whole chicken tenders, fresh-roasted mushrooms, and a cheese spice blend for $5.99.

 Chicken Marsala Ravioli mixes cheese ravioli with Alfredo sauce, Marsala sauce, diced chicken tender, diced red peppers, fresh-roasted mushrooms, and a cheese spice blend for $6.99.
