Panera Bread is joining the fight against breast cancer by baking its signature Pink Ribbon Bagels. This October, a portion of the proceeds from the sale of each Pink Ribbon Bagel sold in the 32 participating Pittsburgh-area Panera Bread bakery-cafes will be donated to The Young Women’s Breast Cancer Awareness Foundation, which recently merged with the Cancer Caring Center.

They are $1.39 each.

Since 1988, the center has offered free services to patients and families, including neighborhood support groups, professional counseling, wellness programs and Young Adult Cancer Support.

“We are beyond grateful to our continued partnership with Panera Bread,” says Jen Kehm, founder, The Young Women’s Breast Cancer Awareness Foundation and development and liaison manager for the Cancer Caring Center in a news release.

Over the past nine years, participating Panera Bread bakery-cafes in the area have raised nearly $100,000 for The Young Women’s Breast Cancer Awareness Foundation through this campaign.

Shaped in the form of the iconic pink ribbon, these bagels feature cherry chips, dried cherries and cranberries, vanilla, honey and brown sugar. They are baked fresh each morning.

Customers can also make monetary donations.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
