From the very start, the Malnati family has been passionate about giving back to the community that supports them.

Marc, Lou, Rick, and Jean MalnatiStarting in 1971, Lou and Jean hosted their first annual charity event to raise a scholarship fund for a local athlete that would play football at Wake Forest University, in the name of famous Chicago Bear Brian Piccolo, who passed away from cancer.

After Lou also fell victim to cancer in 1978, Jean transformed this dinner into the Lou Malnati’s Cancer Research Benefit. To date, the Lou Malnati’s Cancer Research Fund has raised over $3.5 million to benefit organizations who are dedicated to finding a cure for cancer.
