Customers who visit Cooley’s Pizza on Tuesday will get more for their money than just a slice of pizza.

Every dime taken in Tuesday at the Old Atlanta Road (click for map) restaurant in south Forsyth will go to research, education and community health programs for breast cancer.

Restaurant owner Andy Cooley said he’s also asked his employees to work for free Tuesday so the restaurant can contribute more to the cause.

“This is going to cost us money, but it’s something that’s worth it,” said Cooley, adding that proceeds will go to the Breast Cancer 3-Day Walk on Oct. 23-25 in Atlanta.

Specifically, the money goes to six local women who are working to raise more than $2,000 each for the event.

“For all six of them, it’s a lot of money to try and raise, but we hope to help,” Cooley said.

According to its Web site, the Breast Cancer 3-Day is a 60-mile walk for women and men “who want to make a personal difference in the fight against breast cancer. Participants commit to fundraising, training and dedicating an entire weekend to the cause.”
