THE POWER OF PINK
October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month and Brighton Collectibles has created a new, limited-edition bracelet featuring dangling heart and pink ribbon charms with light rose Swarovski crystal accents. They retail for $50 and are available through Oct. 31 at all Brighton Collectibles stores.
For each bracelet sold between now and Oct. 31 at the North County Mall location, Brighton Collectibles will donate $5 to the Jean McLaughlin Women’s Center for Health and Healing, located in the Pomerado Outpatient Pavilion, and store owners Craig and Angela Pettitt will add an additional $5 to the corporate contribution. Proceeds will be used to provide recommended breast imaging services to women in North County who otherwise could not afford the appropriate screenings.
