Raising Dough with Tony Gemignni

Set a World Record with Tony Gemignani!


Celebrate 5-years with Tony’s Pizza Napoletana at our Guinness Book of World Records Pizza Toss


WHO
In the heart of San Francisco’s storied Little Italy is Tony’s Pizza Napoletana, home of 11-time World Pizza Champion Tony Gemignani. When the restaurant opened five years ago, it brought a sense of renewed vibrancy to the Stockton block of North Beach, which at the time had many empty store fronts. Now, with an extensive pizza menu featuring seven differen ovens offering perfect temperatures for nine distinct styles of pies, Tony’s Pizza Napoletana is known as the “Best Pizzeria in the Nation,” as declared by USA Today, and has put the spotlight on San Francisco’s North Beach neighborhood.

WHAT
To celebrate the 5-year anniversary of Tony’s Pizza Napoletana, we have invited the Guinness Book of World Records to witness Tony and crew, along with 300 local children and chaperones, simultaneously toss pizza dough to set the record of the most people tossing pizza dough.

Attendees will witness pizza acrobatics from World Pizza Acrobatic Thrower Siler Chapman, and will have the opportunity to get in on exciting raffles and giveaways. Tony will also be taking photos with his fans during and after the event.

WHEN
Saturday, June 28, 2014 from 8:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m.; Registration begins at 8:15 a.m.; Pizza Toss is promptly at 10:00 a.m.

WHERE
We will close Stockton Street between Green Street and Union Street

ENTRANCE
$15.00 for kids, $20.00 for adults to participate in the Pizza Toss; Proceeds benefit the Family House in San Francisco, a home away from home for families of children with cancer and other life threatening illnesses.

About Family House

Family House serves as a home away from home for families of children with cancer and other life-threatening illnesses by providing physical comfort and emotional support, free from financial concerns.

In 2015, UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital will open its new facility in San Francisco’s Mission Bay and The Nancy and Stephen Grand Family House will be constructed right next door. Groundbreaking is scheduled for September 17, 2014. A capital campaign is underway for this new facility that will provide free, temporary housing for EVERY family traveling to San Francisco for their child's life-saving treatment. To find out more and how you can get involved, please visit www.familyhouseinc.org.

Family House is holding its first-ever crowdfunding campaign to raise $100,000 for the new Nancy and Stephen Grand Family House in Mission Bay. In partnership with the multi-platinum, Grammy Award-winning rock band Train, “Calling All Angels,” will generate funds needed to support ALL families who need free, temporary housing while their children are being treated for cancer and other critical illnesses at the UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital. The campaign runs through Wednesday, June 4th at indiegogo.com/projects/calling-all-angels. This campaign ends on June 15, 2014.

Founded in 1981, Family House is a 501(c) (3) (94-2722663) not-for-profit organization providing temporary housing to families of seriously ill children receiving treatment at the University of California San Francisco Benioff Children's Hospital. Qualifying families live more than 50 miles from UCSF, and many live at or below the low-income status as determined by UCSF. Our two locations sustain nearly a 100% occupancy rate and can accommodate 107 people per night. Over the course of a year we serve more than 2,000 families.
