‘Biscuit’ aids in cancer fight

In honor of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, dressbarn is kicking off a campaign dedicated to fundraising for breast cancer research.

Beginning October 1, all dressbarn stores, including its Brooklyn location, 2117 Ralph Avenue in the Georgetowne Shopping Center, will allow customers to “adopt” Biscuit, a stuffed plush dog, for $5.

The total net profit of $2 for each one sold will be donated to the American Cancer Society to support local and national breast cancer initiatives. The campaign will continue through October 31, while supplies last.
