Ridgefield High School Junior Christopher DiFabio will take over the pizza kitchen at ReNapoli in Old Greenwich on June 28 at 3 pm for an hour-long pizza-making competition to raise money for the charity Full Courts Peace. DiFabio will will race the clock, making as many pizzas as possible within the hour. He is asking for sponsors to pledge a dollar for each pizza produced. If the name sounds familiar, it should. Christopher is the son of six-time world pizza champion Bruno DiFabio, owner of 10 pizzerias around the country including ReNapoli and Pinocchio pizzerias in Wilton and New Canaan.

Proceeds from the fundraiser will support the building of a basketball court in Havana, which he plans to visit in the fall. He is asking for sponsors to pledge a dollar for each pizza produced. Connecticut residents interested in supporting the cause can contact christopherdifabio@aol.com or Bruno@pizzascience.com, or drop by ReNapoli to submit a pledge. All pledgers are invited to attend a pizza party reception at 4 pm, where Christopher and Bruno DiFabio’s award-winning pizzas will be served.

About Full Courts Peace

In 2007, Mike Evans and Dave Cullen formed Full Courts Peace, a volunteer group, whose mission is to boost, bond, and teach local and global communities through the creation of basketball organizations and youth basketball teams. Full Courts Peace shares their mission by sending volunteers locally and internationally to underprivileged areas in Connecticut, Cuba, and Mexico. In response to the acts of violence, basketball courts are being resurrected to promote a shift in culture and create a safe haven for families and youth living within the communities.

ReNapoli is located at 216 Sound Beach in Old Greenwich, CT.
