Doris Italian Market is happy to announce that, in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month, we will be offering our pink and white cookies through all of October. Each cookie purchased will raise $1 for the American Cancer Society- Making Strides against Breast Cancer. We are proud to be supporting this wonderful foundation and hope you will join us in our fundraising efforts.
Did you know that 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime? Breast cancer is one of the most commonly diagnosed cancers in women and the second leading cause of death. A surprising fact is that there are about 2,150 men diagnosed with breast cancer every year as well. It’s estimated that 231,840 new cases of invasive breast cancer will be diagnosed in 2015, as well as 60,290 cases of the non-invasive variety. These heartbreaking statistics are the reason why fundraising to help find a cure is so important to us.
Along with the sale of our cookies for a cure, we invite everyone to come out and join the next [“Making Strides Against Breast Cancer”](http://makingstrides.acsevents.org/site/TR/MakingStridesAgainstBreastCancer/MSABCCY15FL?pg=entry&fr_id=70050 ) 5k walk being held on October 24th at Mizner Park in Boca Raton. This event is a great opportunity to get involved in the local community in the pursuit of raising awareness about the disease and, of course, to raise money! Visit http://makingstrides.acsevents.org to sign up and find out more information on how you can get involved.
If you’re a fan of our original black and white cookies, then you’ll love their new pink and white look. Come stop into one of our locations and indulge your sweet tooth for a very important cause!
