Jimmy V’s Osteria + Bar and The V Foundation Partner in the Fight Against Cancer

Restaurant Donates $40,000 to The V Foundation to Fund Cutting-Edge Cancer Research

The V Foundation for Cancer Research, one of the nation’s leading cancer research funding organizations, and Jimmy V’s Osteria + Bar are proud to announce the restaurant has raised more than $40,000 for cancer research.  Named for the late Jim Valvano, North Carolina State basketball coach and ESPN commentator, Jimmy V’s Osteria + Bar donates 2.5% of its revenue to fund cutting-edge cancer research through The V Foundation. 

“Jimmy V’s Osteria + Bar, Northview Hotels & Resorts and the Sheraton Raleigh Hotel are honored and humbled to be a part of this donation to The V Foundation,” said Jim Henning, General Manager of Jimmy Vs, & head of Northview’s Food and Beverage group.  “We especially thank all of our customers who have shown great support for Jimmy V’s Osteria + Bar while being able to be part of such a great donation and cause.”

Located adjacent to the Sheraton Raleigh Hotel, Jimmy V’s Osteria + Bar celebrated its official Grand Opening on September 24, 2013.  Jim Valvano’s love for food influenced the restaurant’s menu creation, featuring local and seasonal dishes with an emphasis on delicious Italian/American traditional comfort foods – all using local farm grown ingredients.  Jimmy V’s Osteria + Bar is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner and has the largest open air patio and outside seating area in Raleigh. 

“Jimmy V’s Osteria + Bar has been a tremendous partner to The V Foundation,” said Nick Valvano, President Emeritus of The V Foundation.  “This restaurant combines all the things Jim loved: delicious Italian food, a warm atmosphere and friendship over a good meal.  Moreover, this winning combination supports Jim’s greatest legacy, The V Foundation.”

As the official charity partner of the Rock ‘n’ Roll Raleigh Marathon & ½ Marathon, The V Foundation is also pleased to announce Jimmy V’s Osteria + Bar as a Team V sponsor.  Team V, a group of runners raising funds for The V Foundation, will enjoy a pre-race pasta party at the Sheraton Hotel in Downtown Raleigh provided by Jimmy V’s.  Rock ‘n’ Roll Raleigh is officially sold out with limited entries still available through Team V.  For more information and to sign up for Team V, please visit www.run4v.org.
