2 Gallon Pink Tin

Thanks to the overwhelming support and generosity of our customers, Garrett Popcorn Shops® was able to raise $12,000 in the month of October for A Silver Lining Foundation. Your generosity will give women in the Chicago-area access to the mammograms and diagnostic testing that are critical in detecting and treating breast cancer. Thank you again for joining the fight!

Live with Dr. Sandy!

Signature Pink Tin | Join the Fight Against Breast Cancer

If you’ve walked around Chicago this month, you can’t help but notice pink everywhere — on the rooftops, on the sidewalks, and in windows across town. That’s because it’s National Breast Cancer Awareness Month once again. Garrett Popcorn is supporting this cause by donating 10% of all Signature Pink tin sales to A Silver Lining Foundation, an organization that provides mammograms to under-served women in our community.

On Saturday October 15, between 10:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m., A Silver Lining Foundation along with Fifth Third Bank, will have screenings to pre-qualify women for free mammograms. Locations include:

  • 7112 West Cermal, Berwyn
  • 6018 West Cermak, Cicero
  • 3957 W. 26th St., Chicago

For more information visit them online or call (312) 345-1322.

As added incentive to take advantage of this offer, there will be coupons for free snack sized samples of The Chicago Mix for participants. We believe a little sugar helps the medicine go down!
