This month is filled with opportunities to make personal purchases that also benefit the Hutchinson Center's breast cancer research. For the 10th consecutive year, when you buy a bottle of FAT bastard wine, a portion of the proceeds will benefit breast cancer patients, awareness and research, including the work of the Center. The wine company will donate 25 cents for every bottle sold in a restaurant or retail store through the end of October.
Need a new car? If you are in the market for a new car, consider a purchase from Michael's Toyota of Bellevue. The company will donate $50 to breast cancer research at the Center for every new or used vehicle sold this month.
Looking for environmentally friendly beauty products? All month, purchases of Global Goddess beauty products will benefit breast cancer research at the Center. For every sale from its makeup and skin care line, Global Goddess will donate 20 percent of proceeds to the Center.
October cancer awareness promotions generate thousands of dollars for Center research; through the years, more than $200,000 has come in from FAT bastard alone. For more information on promotions this month and beyond, visit www.fhcrc.org/shoptosupport.
