Panera Bread and Breast Cancer Foundation of the Ozarks Join Forces
Panera Bread and Breast Cancer Foundation of the Ozarks (BCFO) have once again joined forces in the local effort to support families facing breast cancer. Panera Bread is offering the cherry-flavored “Pink Ribbon Bagel” during the entire month of October – National Breast Cancer Awareness Month – at Springfield locations and Branson, with a portion from the sale of every Pink Ribbon Bagel being donated to Breast Cancer Foundation of the Ozarks. Panera kicked off the month on October 1st with donating 100% of sales of the pink ribbon bagels to BCFO raising $4,458 in one day. There is still more money to be raised through the rest of the month with $.25 of each bagel going to BCFO.
Breast Cancer Foundation of the Ozarks is the only local organization that provides financial assistance for individuals with breast cancer and their families. In addition the BCFO offers education, support services and a free mammography program for women who are uninsured or under insured.
