The Pizzurro Family Foundation is a private, family foundation endowed in 2016. The Foundation was founded by Chris, Cara, Adam, and Dominic Pizzurro for philanthropic support and the advancement of pediatric cancer research, youth education, and organ donation. The Foundation’s focus areas are intended to continue the charitable workings of the late Tony and Debbie Pizzurro.
About Tony and Debbie and The Pizzurro Family:
Both Tony and Debbie were born and raised in Columbus, OH. In 1973, Tony graduated from Bishop Ready High School and Debbie from Northland High School. The two first met working at Chemical Abstracts Service. Tony was a computer operator and Debbie an administrative assistant. At the young ages of 20 and 21, the couple married in 1976. In 1984, they welcomed their first born, Christopher. Two years later, the family was blessed with twins, Cara and Adam. In 1991, their fourth and final, Dominic was born.
At 6 months old, Dominic was diagnosed with a rare form of liver cancer, hepatoblastoma. Over the course of several years, Dominic spent months at Children’s Hospital in Columbus and Cincinnati, OH where he underwent multiple operations and rounds of chemotherapy. While Tony and Debbie were fighting for one child’s life, they managed to remain actively engaged with the other children and their activities through the continuous support of family and friends. After three years waiting for a liver donor on the national transplant list, in 2005 Dominic received the gift of new life at the age of thirteen.
Through it all, the Pizzurro children attended Westerville City Schools and graduated from St. Francis DeSales High School. The Pizzurro children were involved in many sports, after school programs, and community activities as Tony and Debbie emphasized the importance of education and development within the household. With their most sincere appreciation, Tony and Debbie were generous donors to Children’s Hospital and Lifeline of Ohio as well.
In February 2009, Tony was diagnosed with stage IV esophageal cancer. A few months after his diagnosis, he passed at the age of 53. In 2014, Debbie was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. After numerous treatments and operations, she too lost her battle with cancer in January 2016 at the age of 60.
The Pizzurro Family Foundation is our way to continue our parent’s legacy and charitable contributions.

There will be an additional mixer at 6:30 Friday night at Harry Buffalo’s, 6150 South Sunbury Rd. Westerville right off of 161.
Everyone who attended the 40 year reunion were glad they did and wished there had been more time because there were so many friendships to renew. I am hoping that more than half of our class will attend this event. I have been able to locate almost all of our classmates. If you were in this class for only one year you are welcome to join us.
