Angelo's Pizza Hosting Fundraiser for Freed Kidnapping Victims

Legendary pizza shop plans to give 100 percent of its pizza sales to Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight.

One of the first meals Amanda Berry wanted after nearly 10 years in captivity was a pizza from Angelo's Pizza in Lakewood.

That's a loyal customer.

Now, Angelo's is looking to show its appreciation.

The Lakewood pizzeria is hosting a May 16 fundraiser for Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight, who were found this week in a Cleveland home after years in captivity.

Acccording to a flyer circulating around town — and making the rounds on social media — Angelo's will donate 100 percent of the proceeds from pizza sales to the women on May 16.

In addition, Angelo's employees are donating their hourly pay to raise money "for a very good cause."

Fox 8 reported on Wednesday that the Berry family dined on Angelo's pizza for a celebratory meal together.

Angelo's customers can dine-in, pick up or have delivery. In any case, "if you eat Angelo's on May 16, your money will go to help people in need."

Ruf Why be so cynical! Something is wrong with your phone because they are raising money hand over fist for this charity. They are jam packed with people either in the restaurant, ordering take out and to go all in support of Amanda, Gina and Michelle. They are going to be donating thousands of dollars and all you can say is negative? You sound like a Glass Half Empty kind of guy. Real Sensitive!

Real generosity is doing something nice for someone who will never find out who it came from. It's called a random act of kindness, Angelo's. Why not cut a generous check, without calling Newsnet 5. This reeked of self promotion.
