All about the cause

Cookies by Shar and A Rhea of Hope will be teaming up for Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October, resulting in a deliciously good cause! The gourmet bakery will be presenting limited-edition pink ribbon cookies in two different sizes. Large pink ribbon-shaped cookies will also be available in several Florida retail locations and small pink ribbon-shaped cookies will be available in packages of two at Epicure Gourmet Market in Miami Beach, Florida, and can be shipped nationwide.

As well as the pink ribbon cookies, Cookies by Shar will be offering cookies with the lavender Rhea of Hope label trimmed with silver crystals during October. These cookies will help fund the organization’s goal of increasing awareness about cancer-related fertility issues and provide options for men and women who face these obstacles. These cookies can be purchased exclusively online.
