Community Involvement: Breast Cancer Angels

November 6, 2009

Pink Sapphire Ribbon Pin

Benita Jensen of our store at the Glendale Galleria in the Los Angeles area has been active with an organization called Breast Cancer Angels after losing 2 aunts to the disease.

The organization was founded in 2000 to provide financial assistance to women (and men) in treatment for breast cancer. They provide help with food costs, housing, and provide clothing and Christmas gifts to families in need. In 2008, Breast Cancer Angels purchased a 5 bedroom home in Orange County where women can live rent free while they are in treatment in an effort to keep women from being homeless and alone while they fight their breast cancer battle.

We are pleased to support Benita and the Breast Cancer Angels by donating a 14K gold and pink sapphire breast cancer ribbon pin to their Holiday Luncheon on Sunday, November 15th. The pin will be raffled off with all the proceeds going directly to women in treatment.

Thank you Benita for your work on this important cause!
