The Pink Pumpkins got their start with Doreen Koenig, mom of CEO Andrew Koenig, who everyone thought of as the CITY mom. She was always known for her philanthropy, and one of her biggest causes was ending breast cancer, long before she was diagnosed in 2015.
As Doreen reached the end of her brave battle, she had the idea to give out thousands of pink pumpkin buckets in our stores and around our community. It was her special and cute wish to fill the community with the color of hope for breast cancer awareness.
Her idea is that moms and families everywhere in South Florida would be using these pink pumpkin buckets on Halloween, and that this would spread some awareness to the cause—ending breast cancer.
Where Does the Money Go?
The American Cancer Society is an important resource for women who are newly diagnosed with breast cancer. We owe it to those women to support the organization that does more than any other for them by funding innovative research and providing free information and services.
