A check for $50,000 was presented by Balistreri Owned and Operated Sendik’s Food Market to ABCD prior to the opening of May 23rd Milwaukee Brewers vs Washington Nationals game. Major league baseball may never be the same!
Support for ABCD’s work has been a part of Sendik’s since 2006 and involves direct corporate support and contributions from Sendik’s loyal customers. This year’s gift will be used to assure the quality and continuing growth of free one-to-one support services for patients, family and friends slots online affected by breast cancer.
This year’s campaign included ABCD volunteers sharing information in each of Sendik’s nine area stores and the annual Valentine’s Day chocolate promotion. In addition, the traditional power of one-to-one ice cream sale and proceeds from the sale of Sendik’s Real Food magazine contributed to the fundraising.
The Balistreri family personally understands the stress and worry that accompanies a love one’s diagnosis with breast cancer. Family members and co-owner, Margaret Harris notes, “breast cancer affects an entire family, as well as friends and other love ones. We at Sendik’s are humbled to support ABCD’s distinct support services-helping to keep them free of cost, of the highest quality and available to anyone who calls.”
