Eggland’s Best Continues its Commitment to Fighting Breast Cancer, with More Than A Decade of Supporting Komen’s Mission to Save Lives
Cedar Knolls, NJ – September 30, 2020 – For the 11th consecutive year, Eggland’s Best (EB) is supporting the fight to end breast cancer by “going pink” in honor of its partnership with Susan G. Komen®. Eggland’s Best is committed to providing support to help fund Komen’s mission to save lives by meeting the most critical needs in our communities and investing in breakthrough research to prevent and cure breast cancer.
“We’re thankful to have generous partners such as Eggland’s Best to support us in our mission to eliminate breast cancer,” said Sarah Rosales, Komen’s VP of Corporate Partnerships. “One in eight women during their lifetime will have a moment that will change everything – the moment they are told they have breast cancer. Eggland’s Best’s long-standing support ensures that we are able to be there for everyone touched by breast cancer, every step of the way.”
Throughout October, EB is proudly showcasing its commitment to the cause and encouraging consumers to join the fight against breast cancer by featuring Susan G. Komen’s signature pink Running Ribbon® on its iconic EB-stamped eggs. In addition, Eggland’s Best egg cartons will display Susan G. Komen graphics to show its support for the breast cancer community. Eggland’s Best is also pledging a $100,000 donation to Susan G. Komen in 2020-2021, regardless of sales.
“Eggland’s Best is thrilled to once again join forces with Susan G. Komen to support research, advocacy and patient support to help save lives from breast cancer,” said Charlie Lanktree, CEO of Eggland’s Best. “While we’ve come a long way, this awful disease still touches too many Americans each year. We are committed to helping Komen’s life-saving work.”
