"Every single dollar makes a difference and we want to do our part to help [support breast cancer awareness]." - Robert Jucker
Houston, TX (PRWEB) October 09, 2014
Every year, in observance of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Three Brothers Bakery donates a portion of the proceeds of the sales of its pink ribbon themed treats to Susan G. Komen® Houston supporting screening, research and treatment. This year, the famous bakery, will once again be hosting its annual bake sale the entire month of October, and a Shred for Komen event at the Braeswood location on Saturday, October 25th with Texas Security Shredding.
Pink ribbon baked goods supporting breast cancer awareness include pink ribbon gingerbread cookies, pink gingerbread men with pink ribbon sprinkles, pink themed petit fours and cupcakes, and a four-inch white ribbon cake with pink scrollwork, pink filling and topped with a pink ribbon.
Partnering with Texas Security Shredding, a woman-owned business, Three Brothers Bakery will be holding a Shred for Komen event on October 25 at the Braeswood location in order to encourage fundraising efforts for Komen Houston. Texas Security Shredding will be on-site at the bakery to shred up to 10 boxes of sensitive documents, in exchange for a suggested donation of $5-$10 per box, all benefitting Susan G. Komen Houston.
As an eight-year breast cancer survivor, and ninth in her family to be diagnosed, Three Brothers Bakery co-owner, Janice Jucker, is passionate about the cause and is active in educating and spreading awareness for the importance of early detection, helping other newly diagnosed patients, and also serves as a board member of Susan G. Komen Houston.
“We are always committed to fundraising during Breast Cancer Awareness Month,” says Bobby Jucker, bakery co-owner and fifth generation baker. “My wife explained the correlation between the founding of Susan G. Komen and survivorship numbers today. In the early 1980s, it was about 75% and today it is almost 95%. To me, this means what they do is making a difference. Every single dollar makes a difference and we want to do our part to help.”

About Three Brothers Bakery
The traditions of Three Brothers Bakery began in Chrzanow, Poland circa 1825, and were preserved despite the family’s concentration camp imprisonment during the Holocaust. Their miraculous liberation, and subsequent move to Houston, brought Eastern European scratch baking traditions to 4036 S. Braeswood Blvd, 12393 Kingsride Lane, and 4606 Washington Ave where the owners are now proud to call themselves “memory makers who just happen to be bakers.” Perfecting the process for almost 200 years, each day the fifth generation bakers produce mostly dairy-free breads and pastries, cookies, a full line of specialty dessert cakes and pies, as well as custom birthday, special occasion, wedding and groom’s cakes using only the highest quality ingredients.
