Buenos Aires’ Longest Pizza Made to Help People with Down Syndrome

BUENOS AIRES – A dozen pizza cooks and some 100 volunteers kneaded 60 meters (197 feet) of dough for the longest pizza ever made in Buenos Aires, an attraction aimed at collecting funds for people with Down syndrome, the event’s organizers said.

The pizza, prepared Sunday next to the iconic Obelisk of Buenos Aires on the popular Avenida Corrientes thoroughfare, was sliced into 3,000 portions available to all who came by, for the modest price of 20 pesos ($2.10) that included two pieces and a drink, the online news site Infobae said.

The act of compassion also included a magic show by Magia Inclusiva, live music, a pizza-making acrobat and raffles, according to a communique from the Down Syndrome Association of the Argentine Republic, or ASDRA, organizer of the event together with various chambers of commerce and other associations.

Those in charge of selling the pizza portions were ASDRA young people.

“All the money collected will go to the NGO’s activities” on behalf of “inclusion in the family, health, education, employment and an independent life” for Down syndrome sufferers, ASDRA said in the note.
