Rutgers Cancer Institute/Panera Bread Pink Ribbon Bagel™

Supporting breast cancer efforts at Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey in New Brunswick can be as simple as picking up a tasty treat at your local Panera Bread® bakery-cafe during the month of October.
The Cancer Institute of New Jersey is one of the many breast cancer-related entities nationwide that will receive contributions from the sale of Panera’s Pink Ribbon Bagel.
For every Pink Ribbon Bagel sold in the participating Panera Bread locations in northern and central New Jersey (panerabread.com), 10 cents will support breast cancer research and patient education programs at the Cancer Institute.
