NORTH HOLLYWOOD, Calif., Nov. 22, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Every October is breast cancer awareness month and Golf Pro Market wanted to keep the feeling alive going into Black Friday by offering a woman's only golf subscription box that donates to breast cancer research all year long.
"One of the fastest growing consumer segments is subscription boxes," said Noble A. DraKoln, founder and president of GolfProMarket.com. "There's a simple opportunity to do good all year long with that. Last month I walked with my wife, who works in a cancer center, and our children along with her boss, a recent cancer survivor and realized our company needed to do something to help."
Golf Pro Market, for the past 18 months, has had a monthly golf subscription box geared toward men. In the past 18 months alone they have seen their growth go up 300% and climbing, with record sales expected this holiday season, but noticed something odd- a good number of subscriptions were being bought by women for husbands, sons, fathers as gifts.
"I believe business has a civic responsibility that extends beyond just making a profit. I thought to myself since so many women are buying our subscription boxes we want to support women's issues and breast cancer hit home for me. "
Golf Pro Market has four different golf subscription boxes, a "Golf Starter" monthly subscription box that sells for $20/month along with a His, Hers, and a Junior premium subscription called a "Golf Ready" Box that sells for $59.95/month on www.golfpromarket.com
When any box is subscribed, a percentage of sales are given back to breast cancer research. This Black Friday a select number of subscriptions can be had at over 50% off along with free shipping.
