Food Circus Raises Money for Cancer Research

MIDDLETOWN, N.J. -- Food Circus Supermarkets, Inc. here has received an award from the American Cancer Society for an initiative held to benefit the company that raised $5,800 toward cancer research, according to a published report.

Paul DiNero, director of special events at the American Cancer Society, presented the award to Food Circus v.p. of administration and marketing Phil Scaduto and v.p. of operations and merchandising Louis Scaduto Jr. The Scaduto and Azzolina families, who own the company, have participated in such fundraising initiatives for over a decade, according to the company.

In May and June each of the retailer's stores sold star and moon icons, with all proceeds of those sales going to the American Cancer Society. Food Circus runs a cancer-research fundraising campaign annually. Assistant v.p. of human resources Nancy Fama told the Middletown Courier that the initiative was successful thanks to "the support of our team members and, of course, our customers."

Food Circus operates 10 Super Foodtown stores in Monmouth, Middlesex, and Ocean counties in New Jersey.
