CENTENNIAL, Colo. - Bill Ficke, the father of former Loyola University Maryland men's basketball player Dan Ficke '09, paired his deep roots with New York City and his dedication to raising money for cancer research in a recent fundraiser at his Denver-area restaurant.

Ficke has hosted a 'Day of Giving' at his restaurant, Big Bill's N.Y. Pizza, since the first anniversary of September 11. Patrons receive free food at the restaurant in exchange for donations to the foundation. The pizzeria's staff also donated their salaries for the day to the cause.

Several Denver-area celebrities, from Denver Nuggets Head Coach George Karl to gold-medalist swimmer Missy Franklin, stopped by the event.

Denver's KUSA-TV covered the event. Watch their highlights here.
