One in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime and, according to the American Cancer Society, 1 in 833 men will also be affected. In Delaware alone, there will be more than 1,000 new cases of breast cancer diagnosed in 2022. In an effort to reduce those numbers, encourage early detection and provide additional information about updated treatments, Bonefish Grill in Wilmington is partnering with Delaware Breast Cancer Coalition (DBCC).
“From Monday, October 17 through Thursday, October 20, from 11 AM until 10 PM, Bonefish Grill will donate 20 percent of customer’s total checks from both dine-in and carry out to DBCC,” Mackenzie Blithe, Public Relations Coordinator for DBCC, said. “This is to support the mission of DBCC to educate the community, connect survivors to local resources and enriching the lives of those living with breast cancer while promoting a healthy community.”
This partnership came about through the Delaware Ducks Youth Hockey Team, according to Blithe.
“It all started when Joe Duca contacted DBCC on behalf of the hockey team,” Blithe said. “Joe has both friends and family who have dealt with breast cancer and are now doing great, which inspired the partnership with DBCC. The team wanted to host various fundraisers to benefit DBCC during the month of October. Mike McMann, a regional manager for the restaurant group that Bonefish is a member of, has a son who is on the hockey team. He had the wonderful idea to connect DBCC with the manager of the Bonefish grill on 202 and they created a give-back night to benefit the coalition. The Delaware Ducks hockey team is encouraged to participate in the event as well. This goes to show how one partnership can create a ripple effect to spread awareness and raise funds for a great cause.”
In order to participate, guests are asked to present or mention a flyer describing the event which can be found by clicking here. DBCC is a 501(c)(3) that empowers communities by raising awareness of breast health issues through survivorship support services, outreach and education in order to facilitate the early detection and treatment of breast cancer.
