We’ve updated our ‘Power of Pink’ arrangement to continue breast cancer awareness efforts

Connells Maple Lee’s fall catalog will arrive in mailboxes just as October ushers in National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

The catalog includes a new version of our “Power of Pink” arrangement, which is offered year-round to raise money for breast cancer awareness.

The new arrangement features hydrangea and roses in a swirled glass vase and measures 12 inches high and 11 inches wide. It is priced at $56.99 and can be ordered online, over the phone or in-store.

With each arrangement sold, we earmark $10 for breast cancer organizations.

In 2015, that meant a $1,000 donation to the Stefanie Spielman Fund for Breast Cancer Research at The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center – Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital and Richard J. Solove Research Institute (OSUCCC – James).

In the United States, approximately 40,290 women are expected to die from breast cancer in 2015, according to breastcancer.org. However, death rates have been decreasing since 1989 as a result of treatment advances, earlier detection through screening, and increased awareness.

Our new Power of Pink bouquet benefits breast cancer research

Power of Pink bouquet

Among the arrangements debuting with our 2014 fall catalog is the Power of Pink bouquet.

It packs plenty of pink: a 9-inch pink vase holds an all around arrangement in shades of pink, featuring a lily, gerbera, three roses, alstroemeria, carnations, mini-carnations, caspia and a sheer bow.

As for power, that derives from the good we hope it does in the fight against breast cancer.

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Approximately 40,000 women in the United States are expected to die from breast cancer in 2014, according to breastcancer.org.

The much better news is that death rates have declined for decades, there are millions of breast cancer survivors, and the fight for a cure continues.

This is why for every Power of Pink arrangement sold, we are donating $10 to breast cancer research. We are committed to this cause, so we’re offering this arrangement year-round.

Meanwhile, if you are a woman between the ages of 50 and 74, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that you have a screening mammogram every two years.
