Slice Night returns Sept. 21 with all-you-can-eat pizza

100% of ticket proceeds benefit the UC Cancer Center

Cincinnati Magazine’s popular Slice Night is returning to Yeatman's Cove for an evening of all-you-can-eat pizza for an incredible cause. The 9th annual Slice Night benefiting the University of Cincinnati Cancer Center is set for 5-9 p.m., Wednesday, Sept. 21.

Slice Night is an outdoor event along the riverfront featuring pizza from nine Greater Cincinnati pizzerias with 100% of ticket proceeds benefiting cancer patients and care teams at the University of Cincinnati Cancer Center.

“This family-friendly event is something we look forward to every year, as we get to showcase some of our city’s incredible local pizzerias while supporting a very worthy local cause,” said Ivy Bayer, Publisher of Cincinnati Magazine. “Slice Night is a fun and delicious way to not only experience a wide variety of styles and toppings, but you’ll also feel good about eating copious amounts of pizza as 100 percent of proceeds go directly to the important work of the Cancer Center, and the patients they care for.”

This event is a pizza lover’s dream. Guests will enjoy upbeat music and entertainment from DJ Toad while strolling the riverfront and enjoying unlimited pizza samples from Cincinnati’s favorite local pizzerias. Fritsch from Q102 will be in attendance also, serving as the official event emcee. Bonus menu items include pasta, flatbreads, dessert and snacks from sponsors. Beer, wine, soda and water will be available for purchase. 

Participating pizzerias: 

  • LaRosa’s Pizzeria
  • Dewey’s Pizza
  • N.Y.P.D. Pizza
  • Krimmers Italianette Pizza
  • Taglio
  • Goodfella’s Pizzeria
  • Bourbon House Pizza
  • Pop’s Pizza
  • Terry’s Grocery and Pizza

"I look forward to Slice Night each year, not only because it's a great event, but for how meaningful it is for our entire community to come together in the fight against cancer,” said William Barrett, MD, co-director of the Cancer Center and professor and chair of the UC Department of Radiation Oncology. “The funds raised continue to make innovative, multidisciplinary care accessible to our patients — from early screenings to survivorship programs. We're immensely grateful for our region's support."
