October brings to mind sweater weather, pumpkins and Halloween festivities. However, among the sea of orange and black this time of year, there are bright bursts of pink signifying October’s most important initiative: Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
This year, we kicked off our support in late September by hosting more than 500 guests for The Women’s Breast & Heart Initiative’s Pink Walk. Now, visit Aventura Mall to shop for a cause at several of our retailers offering promotions and donating proceeds from select purchases to benefit life-saving breast cancer organizations.
See below for a list of month-long events, in-store promotions and products that give back to breast cancer education, research and awareness. Together, we can help save lives and lead the way to a future without breast cancer.
