CINCINNATI -- Tuesday marks the beginning of Cancer Awareness Month and Panera Bread plans to kick off their 12th annual Pink Ribbon Bagel campaign to help support cancer research.
The eatery will offer Pink Ribbon Bagels and Pink Ribbon Bagel Coffee Tumblers to support the American Cancer Society of Southwest Ohio and breast cancer support during the month of October.
“The Pink Ribbon Bagel has been a customer favorite for over a decade. Not only is it a delicious way to add flavor to the day, but each bagel sold helps bring us closer to assisting Ohio residents affected by breast cancer. Additionally, we are excited to introduce the sale of the Pink Ribbon Bagel Coffee Tumblers as an additional way to support the American Cancer Society of Southwest Ohio,” said Craig Flom, President, Breads of the World LLC, franchisee of Panera Bread in Ohio. “Panera Bread is proud to partner with the American Cancer Society of Southwest Ohio to help raise money for such a worthy cause.”
Panera will donate net proceeds to the American Cancer Society of Southwest Ohio from each Pink Ribbon Bagel Coffee Tumbler sold and $.25 for each signature Pink Ribbon Bagel sold throughout the month.
Pink Ribbon Bagel Coffee Tumblers will be on sale at all 20 Cincinnati-area Panera Bread locations for $10.
People who purchase a tumbler will receive free brewed coffee refills at any area Panera through October 31.
“The Pink Ribbon Bagel not only helps bring awareness to breast cancer, but it is also an opportunity to help finish the fight against the disease,” said Brittany Donnellon, Director, Mass Marketing Events for the American Cancer Society. “It is because of these funds that are donated to the Society, groundbreaking research can continue in hopes that one day soon there will be a cure for this disease. We know from our 100 years of saving lives that silence won’t finish this fight – only action will. Our 100th birthday gives us all the opportunity to be as loud and active as possible in the battle to end cancer.”
