DiFabio to spin pizzas for Full Court Peace

UPDATED FRIDAY 2:15 P.M. — Ridgefield High School Junior Christopher DiFabio has partnered with charity organization Full Court Peace to become an honorary diplomat to Cuba.

The son of master pizzaiolo Bruno DiFabio, Christopher will be hosting a fund-raiser at his family’s ReNapoli Pizzeria in Old Greenwich to raise awareness and funds to support the restoration of school basketball court in Havana, which he plans to visit in August.

Christopher is the son of six-time world pizza champion Bruno DiFabio, owner of 10 widely lauded pizzerias around the country including ReNapoli and Pinocchio pizzerias in Wilton and New Canaan.

On Saturday, June 28 at 3 p.m., Christopher will take over the pizza kitchen at ReNapoli on 216 Sound Beach Avenue to race the clock, and make as many pizzas as humanly possible within an hour.

He is asking for sponsors to pledge a dollar for each pizza produced. Connecticut residents interested in supporting the cause can contact [email protected] or [email protected], or drop byReNapoli to submit a pledge.

All pledgers are invited to attend a pizza party reception at 4 p.m., where Christopher and Bruno DiFabio’s award-winning pizzas will be served.

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.
