Garrett Popcorn Shops® Takes Action During Breast Cancer Awareness

 
CHICAGO (October 2012) — During the month of October, Garrett Popcorn Shops® will join the fight against breast cancer by donating 10 percent of Garrett signature pink tin sales to Chicago-based A Silver Lining Foundation®, a 501c3 non-profit organization that provides women access to cost-free mammograms and diagnostic follow up. 

In 2011, Garrett Popcorn Shops partnered with its loyal fans to raise $12,000 which funded 90 mammograms for uninsured women. 

"Garrett Popcorn Shops’ donation doesn’t just affect the women who receive these potentially lifesaving mammograms," says ASLF founder and breast cancer survivor Dr. Sandy Goldberg.  "These screenings also positively affect the lives of their families and generations to come."

A Silver Lining Foundation works to ensure that socioeconomic status does not affect an individual's ability to obtain information, a timely cancer screening and diagnosis. The mission is to ensure dignified, respectful and equal access to quality cancer education and services for all, by creating meaningful partnerships with community, advocacy and healthcare organizations. For more information visit www.asilverliningfoundation.org.

"From the day we opened the doors of Garrett Popcorn Shops more than 60 years ago, we remain committed to supporting local programs in our hometown Chicago," comments Megan Chody, Community Relations Director for Garrett Popcorn Shops. "We’re honored to enter into our third year of partnership with A Silver Lining Foundation, which turns Breast Cancer Awareness into Breast Cancer Action through its preventative and educational services."

The Garrett signature-striped pink tin is available in one and two gallon sizes in Shops and online; and online only in "Shorty Packs," one-quart 12-packs which are perfect for gifting.  These tins, available in Shops and online, can be filled with a choice of traditional Garrett flavors like CaramelCrisp® (which can be selected with almonds, pecans or cashews), CheeseCorn™, Buttery, Plain and the famous The Chicago Mix - a blend of savory CheeseCorn™ and rich, sweet CaramelCrisp®.
