Kansas City, Mo.-based SPIN! Neapolitan Pizza is hosting a fundraiser for the Lance Armstrong Foundation and the University of Kansas Cancer Center through Oct. 8. For any special Tour de BBQ Pizza or half carafe of Chianti Sangria sold, 15 percent of the proceeds will go toward the LIVESTRONG Army of Kansas City for those two causes.
The University of Kansas Cancer Center is seeking to become a designated national cancer center.
Available for a limited time, SPIN!'s hand-tossed, stone-fired Tour de BBQ pizza includes Kansas City staple Gates barbecue sauce and is topped with smoky roasted chicken sausage, four kinds of cheese, crisp sweet onions and roasted corn.
The Chianti Sangria is a combination of Chianti, oranges, lemons and secret spirits, topped off with frozen sugared grapes and apples.
In addition to donating 15 percent of the proceeds from each $11.95 pizza and $6.95 half carafe of Chianti Sangria, SPIN! Neapolitan Pizza served as a sponsor for the third Tour de BBQ bike ride. SPIN! also created a bike team specifically to participate in the fundraiser.
Members of Team SPIN! are frequent participants in free weekly community bike rides open to all ages and experience levels. The rides are sponsored by SPIN! at its Overland Park, Lee's Summit, and Kansas City locations spring through fall. This year, more than 80 cyclists rode in the Tour de BBQ with Team SPIN!
Tour de BBQ pizza is available through Oct. 8 at the four SPIN! Neapolitan Pizza locations, including Olathe, Kan., Summit, Mo., Kansas City, Mo., and Overland Park, Kan.
SPIN! will open a fifth location in Lenexa, Kan., in early 2012.
