Carthage, MO (PRWEB) October 5, 2010
In honor of breast cancer awareness month, on Saturday, October 16, 2010, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., more than 70 retailers across the country will host the third annual Precious Moments retail event. This year’s event will raise awareness and funds for Precious Moments, Inc.’s new philanthropic partner, National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc. (NBCF). The event is themed, “Together We Can Win the Race,” and all who attend will have the exclusive opportunity to purchase the limited edition Precious Moments figurine also titled, “Together We Can Win The Race.” This special piece, (item #109033), features two exquisitely hand-sculpted bisque porcelain girls racing toward a cure for breast cancer. It carries a suggested retail price of $50.
Event attendees will have the chance to win one of several valuable sweepstakes prizes, one drawn every half hour at every retail event location. The final winner will receive an event figurine signed by Deb Butcher, today’s creative force behind the Precious Moments collection in collaboration with her father, Samuel J. Butcher.
“Breast cancer awareness month is the perfect time to implement a nationwide event to benefit NBCF,” says Jim Malcolm, CEO of Precious Moments, Inc. “Precious Moments enthusiasts have always been extremely generous and caring, and NBCF is a non-profit organization that our collector-base can really relate to. It is our hope that they will embrace the opportunity to help us support this amazing cause,” Malcolm continues.
