Pizza Sales, Variety Show to Benefit Cancer Support Center

BUCKSPORT — Anyone who likes eating pizza or laughing at a comedy routine and listening to live music can help the Cancer Support Center of Maine this month.

All month long, the Bucksport House of Pizza will donate $1 to the center for each large pizza sold.

The pizzeria’s goal is to sell 3,000 large pizzas.

“It is important for us to support this local organization that gives so much to those battling cancer,” said restaurant owner Dino Kisamitakis.

Then, on Friday, Oct. 13, the center is holding a “Got Gas” variety event at the Next Generation Theatre in Brewer from 6 to 10 p.m.

That event will feature swing dance music from The Moon Puppies and a comedy routine from Mike Bunker. Appetizers will also be offered.

The cost is $20 per person, and tickets can be purchased at Frank’s Bakery in Bangor, BookStacks in Bucksport, at Next Generation Theatre in Brewer or by calling the Cancer Support Center at 469-6363.

Justin Wardwell of Wicked Wines will be serving drinks for purchase at the Oct. 13 event, and the center reports that “many area businesses have donated great items for auction and raffle.”

The “Got Gas” event is so-named because proceeds will be used for the center’s transportation and gas card program.

The Cancer Support Center of Maine provides free support and services to those affected by cancer, in addition to offering free cancer risk reduction education to schools and social organizations.

The center is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit. For more information, visit its website at
