On October 17th, the florist donated pink floral arrangements for Komen Miami/Ft. Lauderdaleâ€™s 20th Anniversary Race for the CureÂ®, which raises money for local breast health education, screening, treatment and support. The arrangements were displayed in the Komen Survivor Tent, which honored more than 1,000 breast cancer survivors who participated in the inspiring survivor ceremony and race.
During Octoberâ€™s National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Flowers by PoupariĂ±a pledged to donate 10 percent of the proceeds from sales of its special â€śFlower Me Pink for the Cureâ€ť arrangements. Today Flowers by PoupariĂ±a announced it has decided to strengthen its commitment to the fight against breast cancer by extending the promotion and its 10 percent donation to the Affiliate beyond October, to 12 months a year.
â€śThe battle against breast cancer is personal for us â€“ we have faced it in our own family,â€ť said Janella Alfonso, President of Flowers by PoupariĂ±a. â€śWe are committed to supporting the Komen mission of saving lives and ending breast cancer forever through our Pink for the Cure promotion, beyond Breast Cancer Awareness Month to the entire year,â€ť she said.
