From the bottom of our hearts, thank you to our amazing fans for helping us raise donations for A Silver Lining Foundation again this year with our October Pink Tin Promotion! We raised $15,000 this year, and we couldn’t have done it without you!

This is our third year partnering with Dr. Sandy Goldberg and her organization, whose mission is to ensure dignified, respectful and equal access to quality cancer education and services for all. A Silver Lining Foundation’s Buy Mom A Mammogram program is designed to help underinsured women receive no or low cost mammograms, which is critical for early detection and breast cancer treatment.

“311 lives have been eased and saved as a result of this program over three years,” says ASLF founder and breast cancer survivor Dr. Sandy Goldberg.   “Studies show that when one person is diagnosed with cancer, an average of 50 people are also personally impacted as a result.  These important funds reverberate throughout the community as we work together to save one life at a time.”

Here is our team with Dr. Sandy celebrating another successful year!

During the month of October, Garrett Popcorn Shops will once again join the fight against breast cancer by donating 10 percent* of their Signature Striped Pink Tin sales to Chicago-based A Silver Lining Foundation® (ASLF), a 501c3 non-profit organization that provides access to cost-free mammograms and diagnostic follow ups.
Now entering into an unprecedented third year of partnership, Garrett Popcorn Shops has donated a total of $24,000 over the past two years to ASLF. Thanks to the generosity of Garrett and their fans, these donations have helped uninsured women receive the mammograms and diagnostic testing critical for early detection and breast cancer treatment through ASLF’s Buy Mom a Mammogram program.

“We treasure our relationship with Garrett Popcorn Shops. Through their support of our program, well over 200 lives have been eased and saved,” says ASLF founder and breast cancer survivor Dr. Sandy Goldberg.

A Silver Lining Foundation works to ensure that socioeconomic status does not affect an individual’s ability to obtain information, a timely cancer screening and diagnosis. The mission is to ensure dignified, respectful and equal access to quality cancer education and services for all, by creating meaningful partnerships with community, advocacy and healthcare organizations.
