Panera Bread is joining the fight against breast cancer by baking its signature Pink Ribbon Bagels
This October, a portion of the proceeds from the sale of each Pink Ribbon Bagel sold in the participating Johnstown and Altoona area Panera Bread bakery-cafes will be donated to Joyce Murtha Breast Care Center at Chan Soon-Shiong Medical Center at Windber. Additionally, on Monday October 3rd, 100 percent of the net proceeds from the sale of the Pink Ribbon Bagels will be donated to the organization
“The Windber Healthcare Foundation is honored to continue our ongoing partnership with Panera Bread,” commented Kim Oleksa, Foundation Coordinator at Chan Soon-Shiong Medical Center at Windber. “Together we have raised over $38,000 in the last seven years for the Joyce Murtha Breast Care Center and our Pediatric Therapy department through Pink Ribbon Bagel sales and April’s Autism Awareness cookie sales. We thank everyone for their continued support of these important causes.
Shaped in the form of the iconic pink ribbon, Pink Ribbon Bagels feature cherry chips, dried cherries and cranberries, vanilla, honey, and brown sugar. They are baked fresh early each morning by Panera’s bakers at each bakery-cafe
In addition to the Pink Ribbon Bagel sales, Panera Bread also supports Chan Soon-Shiong Medical Center at Windber through donation collection canisters placed at the registers of the participating Johnstown and Altoona area bakery-cafes
