Why a special Breast Health International preserve?
Best of Philly” Gregory Benjamin Jam Offers Support to Local Breast Foundation in Honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month
Philadelphia (Oct. 1, 2014) –Philadelphia favorite Gregory Benjamin Jam is joining in on the fight to raise awareness of the importance of breast health, and local Philadelphia-based Foundation for Breast and Prostate Health (FBPH) is directly benefiting from their generosity during Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
The “Best of Philly” winner and recipient of “Best Artisanal Spread” by Cooking Light magazine is partnering with FBPH for the first time this year by using their artisanal craft to create a signature raspberry and lemon jam called “Scented Lemon Raspberry Preserves.”
“In creating the recipe for the Scented Lemon Raspberry Preserves, we wanted to use fresh antioxidant-rich ingredients like raspberries, cinnamon, nutmeg and clove to not only make a great tasting jam, but also one that had important health benefits to shine a light on how nutrition can play an essential role in in breast health,” said Gregory Conocchioli, founder of Gregory Benjamin Jam. “As a long time supporter of FBPH, I’m honored to use my talents to help FBPH in the Philadelphia area in their mission to raise breast health awareness.”
The specialty jam will be sold online at www.gregorybenjaminsbest.com and in select area retail stores from Oct. 1-31, 2014, and all proceeds will go to benefit FBPH’s Fund for Living program. The program assists women by covering costs or addressing unique problems associated with breast cancer care that are not commonly covered by health insurance programs, such as transportation to a medical appointment or childcare during treatment.
“We are eternally grateful to Gregory Benjamin Jam for their thoughtful and generous support,” said Colleen Daley, executive director of FBPH. “The proceeds from the preserves will go a long way in strengthening our mission to improve the quality of life for women and families who are affected by breast cancer.”
