Go Pink At Knotts Berry Farm To Help Cure Breast Cancer
Although October is designated as National Breast Care Awareness Month, striving to raise awareness and educating individuals about breast cancer should be shared year round. About one in eight women will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime with the rates ranging to be one in 1,000 for men. Finding the cure to this horrible disease is crucial, a stance that Knott’s Berry Farm takes seriously.
From now until March 31st, Knott’s Berry Farm and Susan G. Komen Orange County are working together to raise money for breast cancer awareness, services and research by offering a special “Pink Ticket” and limited edition specially designed “pink” merchandise that provides guests the opportunity to enjoy Knott’s world class entertainment while supporting an important cause that touches both men and women.
“It’s wonderful to see Snoopy hugging Woodstock on top of the logo for Knott’s Berry Farm for the Cure benefiting Susan G. Komen Orange County,” said Lisa Wolter, Executive Director of the Komen Orange County Affiliate. “This partnership will raise much needed funds for mammograms and breast health outreach, and it shows the warmth and caring embrace we can extend to women and families going through their struggle with breast cancer.”
Knott’s Berry Farm kicked off the promotion by donating $25,000 to Susan G. Komen Orange County, which will provide 400 women in Orange County, CA life-saving breast health services. Guests who purchase “Pink Tickets” and “pink” merchandise from Knott’s will further contribute to the overall funding that goes to the wonderful cause which has funded research, created new treatments and helped raise awareness of the importance of annual mammograms to raise the survival rate for breast cancer dramatically over the 33 years of the organization.
Guests can purchase “Pink Tickets” for theme park admission online at a discounted rate of $33 for juniors/seniors and $39 for adults, at a savings of $23 per ticket. Each ticket is valid until April 15, 2014 with a portion of the proceeds benefiting Susan G. Komen Orange County.
In addition to the great cause, guests can use this promotional period as a wonderful way to explore the latest addition to Knott’s Berry Farm, Boardwalk Pier! The new area of the parks includes three new family attractions; Coast Rider, Surfside Glides and the Pacific Scrambler. Likewise, Camp Snoopy is under renovations currently, with a grand opening in the near future that will be completely redesigned with new attractions and a more revitalized area you can preview here.
Spend quality time with family or loved ones while benefiting a great cause, through the “Pink Tickets” and “Pink” merchandise at Knott’s!
