Thanks to everyone who Passed The Pink

by Josh Early Candies

 
For the month of October, we called on our customers and the local community to help Pass The Pink. Whether you bought our Pink Nonpareils, an official Pass The Pink T-shirt or simply helped spread the Pass The Pink message through social media- you came through in grand fashion!

Every October we make a commitment to donate 100% of the proceeds of our Pink Nonpareils and Pass The Pink T-shirts to the Woman's 5k Classic, a local organization that raises funds for research and female cancer related programs in the Lehigh Valley. This year they celebrated their 20th year as a nonprofit organization and we set a very ambitious goal to raise $20,000 for their cause. The Pass The Pink campaign is now over, we've tallied the sales and are very happy to report we will be donating $23,681 to the Women's 5K Classic!

This exceeded even our most ambitious expectation and we'd like to thank everyone who did their part to help us reach the goal.

If the Woman's 5k Classic is new to you, we encourage you to look into their organization. We've had the pleasure of aligning with them for the last 8 years and we could not be more proud of the association. Their 5K Classic is one of the most remarkable race events in the country and the fact that they pull it all off with an all volunteer crew makes it that much more remarkable. If you were not able to be a part of this year's 5K, here is what you missed:



Thanks again for helping Pass The Pink and we hope to see you all at the 2013 Women's 5K Classic!
