All October long, visit Panera bakery-cafe in Rolla or St. Robert, purchase a Pink Ribbon Bagel and Panera will donate 25 cents of each bagel sold to benefit the Phelps Regional Health Care Foundation.
In recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Panera Bread donates a portion of the proceeds from their signature Pink Ribbon Bagels to worthy charitable organizations across Missouri, Arkansas, Oklahoma, and Arizona. The Pink Ribbon Bagel was created in 2001 by breast cancer survivor and franchise owner Sue Stees and has raised over $1 million since its inception. Locally, Pink Ribbon Bagels are available throughout the month of October at both the Rolla and St. Robert locations. Panera Bread representatives personally delivered Pink Ribbon Bagel packs to local businesses as a thank you for supporting the Annual Cancer Gala and the Hospital Foundation.
Thank you to Panera Bread of Rolla and St. Robert for designating the Phelps Regional Health Care Foundation as the benefactor of the region’s funds and for supporting local cancer initiatives.
