Savvi Formalwear of Minnesota unveils the "Pink Ribbon Collection" of Men's Formalwear to raise awareness and support for Susan G. Komen™ in the fight against breast cancer.
Minneapolis-St. Paul, MN-WI (1888PressRelease) April 04, 2012 - Savvi Minnesota is a participating Savvi Formalwear member and has designated special tuxedo styles to be "Pink Ribbon Collection". These styles when chosen by customers will help contribute to a guaranteed minimum donation by Savvi of $33,000 in 2012.
Savvi Minnesota along with the Savvi Formalwear companies believe that within the celebratory nature of their business that there is an opportunity to reflect on the challenges many have faced, and couple that with an opportunity to give back.
"In conceiving the idea for the "Pink Ribbon Collection" at Savvi's Summer Convention, attendees were asked how many knew of friends or family touched by breast cancer? The response had about 75% of the hands raised in the air. That was enough for Savvi Companies, made up of long standing small businesses in markets across North America to reach out to Susan G. Komen to present the Pink Ribbon Collection idea." said Greg Goodwin, Marketing Chairman of Savvi Formalwear.
Customers visiting Savvi Minnesota can look for the designated "Pink Ribbon" styles and choose them knowing that at their special event they have helped others. Customers can also visit www.savviminnesota.com click on the "Pink Ribbon Collection" logo to see available styles in the collection. In addition, participating stores will also be collecting additional donations from customers who wish to contribute to the cause.
