Avon Lake — Peter & Co. Jewelers, 32020 Walker Road, announces the launch of its month-long fundraising event in support of Susan G. Komen Northeast Ohio. A portion of all sales made at the store during October will be donated to the organization to help support local services and fund research to find a cure for breast cancer. It’s just one of three activities Peter & Co. Jewelers is conducting to remind customers and the surrounding community about the importance of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
“Over 57,000 people will be diagnosed with breast cancer this year in our state alone,” said store owner Theresia Oreskovic. “Early detection is important, so one of the things we are doing is posting reminders in our store, and telling everyone to check for breast cancer.” The store will also be selling Breast Cancer Awareness jewelry, “so all of us can show our commitment to defeating breast cancer.”
A portion of these purchases will also be donated to the Susan G. Komen Northeast Ohio organization to help support valuable local services, including providing mammograms to individuals who cannot afford to pay for them on their own.
