Mundelein’s Tiemart to Donate Half of Sale Proceeds to Fight Against Breast Cancer

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and Tiemart, Inc. is supporting the American Cancer Society’s fight against breast cancer through the sale of select socks, ties and other accessories now through November 30. Tiemart has custom-designed pink ribbon accessories and the company has pledged a $5,000 minimum donation to the American Cancer Society through this initiative.

For each pair of breast cancer awareness socks sold, Tiemart will contribute $2.50 (50% of the sales price) to the American Cancer Society. For all other cancer awareness items sold, the American Cancer Society will receive 25% of the sales price.

“This is our second year working with ACS. We also have two other partners we are working with this year on our "pink" programs. This year we have already raised over $25,000 that will go to breast cancer prevention organizations, including ACS. In the nine years since we first got involved with breast cancer awareness, we have now raised over $150,000 for this cause,” explains Mike Martyka, President, Tiemart, Inc.

Products can be purchased at https://www.tiemart.com/american-cancer-society.html. Local pick-up is available at their Mundelein location, 525 Morris Ave, Mundelein. The American Cancer Society does not endorse any service or product.

Breast Cancer Awareness Month is an annual campaign to raise awareness of breast cancer risks, the value of screening and early detection, and treatment options available to women and men who are diagnosed with one of the many forms of breast cancer. More than 249,000 people in the United States are diagnosed with invasive breast cancer every year, and nearly 41,000 die from the disease.
