October is not only a month of fall celebrations and Halloween thrills, but it is also a time for us all to bring awareness to an illness that, according to the American Cancer Society, affects about 1 in 8 women and about 1 in 833 men – breast cancer. If you were to think about it, you would likely be able to name at least one person in your life who has been affected by breast cancer, either directly or indirectly. With well over 300,000 new cases of breast cancer diagnosed each year, the fight against the illness can feel formidable, but every dollar given toward research provides hope that we will soon conquer breast cancer together.

This year, Ellianos Coffee will be raising money for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF). As the highest-rated breast cancer organization in the U.S., the BCRF is a nonprofit organization committed to achieving the end of breast cancer. They provide critical funding for cancer research worldwide to fuel advances in tumor biology, genetics, prevention, treatment, metastasis, and survivorship. To learn more about the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, please visit the website here.

Starting on Monday, October 18th, and running through October 31st, Ellianos is going pink! Your favorite Ellianos drinks will be adorned with a pink lid to raise awareness for breast cancer. For every customer who posts a photo on social media with their Ellianos cup and uses the hashtag #EllianosCares, Ellianos will donate $1 to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. You may also donate directly to the BCRF by following the link here. Ellianos is looking forward to contributing to the fight and serving coffee for a cause that truly counts!

About Holly Key

Holly grew up in the suburbs of Lake City, Florida, and cherishes the sweet memory of her mother regularly treating her to an Ellianos Cookies & Cream Freezer when she was young. Throughout her high school years, she remembers frequenting the drive-thru coffeehouse before classes for much-needed fuel. As Holly transitioned into college at Southeastern University to pursue a bachelor's degree, she continued to rely on an iced Tuscany Toffee latte to get her through late nights of studying. Her love of Ellianos has blossomed over the years, so when presented with the opportunity to combine her love of the coffee brand with her writing skill, she was quickly on board. Holly joined the Ellianos team early in 2021 to assist in content writing, and she has loved every moment. She currently resides in her hometown of Lake City, Florida, with her husband Alvin and dreams of continuing to be a part of the Ellianos family for years to come.
