My heart stopped when I read about the earthquake in the Abruzzo region of Italy.

This week Silvio’s Pizzeria will be donating a % of their profits to the Disaster Relief fund for L’Aquila Italy. Also, Silvio’s employees have offered to donate their tips for the cause as well. Thank you for your support. We will be going to eat there on Friday; hope to see you there.

Here is his letter from his website:

Dear Friends,

         As you may have heard, a horrendous earthquake has struck my homeland region of Abruzzo Italy. Our hearts go out to the suffering of the people of L’Aquila. As a former volunteer of the Red Cross, which in Italy is always called in cases of natural disasters, my first instinct was to go there to help dig by hand every inch of the debris. As we know, the only result of an unorganized party going in, even with the best of intentions, to an area like this will only add to the chaos.

         The best I can do from here is to start fundraising amongst the great community of Ann Arbor and to send our little bit of help to those thousands of people who have lost everything. As Arborites have accepted me and the rest of the Medoro family as a part of this great community it is my hope that you will help me to keep alive my legacy with the region where I grew up.

         Thursday and Friday this week I will be donating part of my profits to help in the relief effort.

         Any contribution will be deeply appreciated,


                                                      Silvio Medoro


Thanks to the Ann Arbor Chronicle for helping to share the news.
