NEWTOWN, Pa., Nov. 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- All 46 Norman's Hallmark locations throughout Pennsylvania and New Jersey will host a special event during Black Friday weekend, November 28th – 30th, to raise funds for breast cancer research. With the $3.99 purchase of Norman's special 'A Gift for a Cure' ornament, customers can save 25% off their entire regular-price purchase all weekend long. Proceeds from this purchase benefit The Vera Bradley Foundation for Breast Cancer.
"We're delighted that Norman's Hallmark is raising funds for breast cancer research," said Catherine Hill, executive director of the Vera Bradley Foundation for Breast Cancer. "Our Vera Bradley retailers are the perfect ambassadors to help us bring more awareness and support to our corporate cause."
In 2013, Norman's proudly donated $12,000 from the generous support of its customers and its goal is to make an even larger donation this year.
The Vera Bradley Foundation for Breast Cancer has contributed $20 million to the research being conducted at the Indiana University Melvin and Bren Simon Cancer Center in Indianapolis, IN and pledged an additional $15 million in spring 2014. This team is world-renown for its collaborative approach to research -- leading national clinical trials and hosting the world's only healthy breast tissue bank. The Foundation's main benefactor is Vera Bradley, Inc., which contributes approximately $1 million each year to the cause. Additional support comes from several sources including events and individual donations. Vera Bradley's co-founders began raising funds for a cure after the loss of a dear friend to the disease in 1993.
