Breast cancer is among the leading health issues women face in the United States: 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime. These statistics are not only alarming, but they are also growing, which is one of the reasons D’Arrigo California began its partnership with the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF) back in 1999. To date, D’Arrigo California has donated $2 million dollars to fund more than 42,000 hours of cancer research.
To learn more about what D’Arrigo CA is doing to advance breast cancer research, tune in on Thursday, October 14th at 11:30 am PST to be part of a Zoom webinar (register here) and hear directly from BCRF experts. The 15-minute webinar features panelists John D’Arrigo, D’Arrigo California president and CEO, Myra Biblowit, BCRF president and CEO, and Dr. Dorraya El-Ashry, BCRF chief scientific officer. The discussion will highlight the correlation between healthy eating and the prevention of breast cancer, what BCRF is doing to help drive cancer breakthroughs, and how D’Arrigo has been a long-time funder enabling BCRF to achieve its mission.

“The synergy that exists between D’Arrigo California and the BCRF is tremendous, which is why we felt compelled to support their work in cancer research,” said D’Arrigo. “We have supported BCRF for over two decades and are committed to continue providing support.”
“Our gratitude runs deep for D’Arrigo’s longstanding partnership,” said Biblowit. “BCRF could not do what we do without support from dedicated partners. By partnering with the largest private funders of breast cancer research in the world, D’Arrigo is making a genuine and tangible impact on propelling research forward, faster.”
A pink ribbon with the words “Proud supporter of BCRF” can be found on all of the packaging and cartons of Andy Boy products found in grocery stores and restaurants.
