BRANDON GRAHAM OF THE PHILADELPHIA EAGLES AND COLLEGEVILLE ITALIAN BAKERY ARE TEAMING UP TO RAISE FUNDS FOR AUTISM FOUNDATION

Montco Bakery Helps Eagle’s Brandon Graham Raise Money

What do football and baked goods have in common? Well for one, carbs are a great source of energy. No, seriously.

While carbs are not what we’re here to talk about, they play an important role in the story.

 Collegeville Italian Bakery, a Montco Bakery Helps Eagle’s Brandon Graham Raise Money.

Eagles defensive Brandon Graham and the bakery have launched Detroit 55 Pizza.

Graham, who is originally from Detroit, has a deep love for Detroit za.

Undeniably, our area has pretty amazing pizza. I mean just look at this:

Albeit, carbs aren’t great all the time. But everyone needs a good pizza every now and then.

Alas, the promotional pizza will be loaded with pepperoni, bacon, sauce, mozzarella and other cheeses.

In essence, pizza may sound a little strange for a bakery right? Wrong! Collegeville Italian Bakery houses Pizzeria Napoletano.

In addition to their bakery menu, they also serve up ice cream, salads, strombolis, sandwiches and so much more!

For every pizza sold, $2 will be donated to the Eagles Autism Foundation.

Currently, the Eagles Autism Challenge is dedicated to raising funds for innovative research and care programs.

As stated, they provide necessary resources to doctors and scientists at leading institutions. For that reason, they are able to assist those currently affected by autism as well as future generations.

Collectively, the foundation fundraising events hope to inspire and engage the community. Given that we can provide much-needed support to make a lasting impact in the field of autism.

Today, millions of people around the world are connected to autism.

The Center for Disease Control estimates that 1 in 44 people under 21 living in the United States are on the autism spectrum. This makes it the fastest-growing developmental disorder.

For Eagles owner and CEO Jeffrey Lurie, it is personal.

With autism in his own family, Lurie knows his is just one of many. So many families deal with this condition. Lurie has seen first hand what a difference these resources can make.

ABOUT EAGLES AUTISM FOUNDATION

“At the Eagles, we take our responsibility to the community very seriously and look for how to best leverage our brand and ability to bring people together in order to drive critical resources and funding to autism.

We want to give a voice to families who live with autism – the ones who are out there every day advocating, promoting, supporting, and seeking out opportunities for their loved ones.

One organization can’t do it alone, so we are partnering with thought leaders to advance scientific breakthroughs.

Together all of us can shift from autism awareness to action for transformational impact, not only in Philadelphia but throughout the country and the world.”
