HoneyBaked & Café of Streetsboro is among the HoneyBaked Ham stores replacing their iconic gold foil with pink for the first time ever this October in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
Customers are invited to help "foil" breast cancer by assisting HoneyBaked in its support of the National Breast Cancer Foundation in its mission to provide free mammograms and diagnostic breast cancer services to underserved women.
"Everyone knows someone whose life has been affected by breast cancer," said Maggie DeCan, HoneyBaked chief operating officer.
During the month of October, one dollar from each limited edition, pink foil-wrapped ham sold at HoneyBaked of Streetsboro will benefit the NBCF. In addition, customers can participate in "Friends Foiling Breast Cancer Fridays." Customers that wear pink and bring a friend for lunch on Fridays in October will receive buy-one, get-one free sandwiches. All month long, customers will have the option to add a donation of one dollar or more to their purchase, directly benefiting the NBCF.
Fans of HoneyBaked's Facebook page will also have the opportunity to nominate friends and loved ones who have been touched by breast cancer to receive a free family meal from HoneyBaked. One hundred families will be selected throughout the month of October.
"We're excited to partner with HoneyBaked this year because they understand that early detection of breast cancer saves lives," says Janelle Hail, NBCF Founder & CEO. "Through their donation, we are able to offer free mammograms to those in need and spread a message of hope to women across the country."
In 2012, donations helped the NBCF provide 25,681 free mammograms to women in need. According to the American Cancer Society, over 200,000 women are diagnosed with breast cancer each year. The key to surviving breast cancer is early diagnosis. Regular screening mammograms, breast self-exams and yearly breast exams by a physician can help. NBCF helps save the lives of uninsured women by reaching them at a vulnerable time in their lives and ensuring their good breast healthcare.
