Casa Nuova Italian Restaurant, located at 5670 Atlanta Hwy, Alpharetta, GA, is hosting its annual Customer Appreciation Day on July 30th, 2017 from 2-6 pm. This event has two important purposes: to thank all the restaurants’ customers for their patronage and loyalty, and to raise awareness for Purple Pansies Inc. and its goal of funding research for pancreatic cancer prevention and treatment. The event features a full buffet, live music and fresh produce giveaway. Donations for Purple Pansies are accepted before and during the event and all proceeds go directly to Purple Pansies Inc., now a nonprofit 501(c)(3).
Maria Fundora started Purple Pansies Inc. in memory of her mother, Iluminada Milian, who passed away from pancreatic cancer in 2007. The goal of the nonprofit is to raise money for pancreatic cancer research, to find an early detection test, and to spread awareness.
“Our mission statement is to increase awareness about pancreatic cancer, to help fund development of an early detection test and to help families that are affected by pancreatic cancer like my family was.” – Maria Fundora
