Klosterman Baking Company, a family-owned bakery headquartered in Cincinnati, wrapped up its Pink Ribbon Loaves campaign benefiting The Pink Ribbon Girls, on October 31st 2012. In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Klosterman Baking Company donated $0.10 to The Pink Ribbon Girls for every Pink Ribbon Loaf sold throughout the month of October. In its first year, the campaign saw great success by raising $7,500 for the Pink Ribbon Girls. In the first week alone 30,000 loaves were sold.
“We are thrilled to see such success with this campaign in its first year,” said Kim Klosterman, CEO, Klosterman Baking Company. 100% of the proceeds raised went to The Pink Ribbon Girls, an outreach mission aimed to provide breast cancer awareness to young women. With the proceeds raised, they aim to launch new educational and support efforts to expand young women’s knowledge on breast cancer. “It is great to see companies such as Klosterman’s get involved with important causes and we were thrilled to partner with them for the Pink Ribbon Loaves donation campaign,” shared Tracie Metzger, Co-Founder and Executive Director, Pink Ribbon Girls. “Support like this is vital to expanding our efforts and reaching the younger community of women that need education on Breast Cancer Awareness.”
