Eat Popcorn to Raise Money for Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Two Austin business partners throw a benefit party for the Austin affiliate of the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Awareness organization.

Business partners Nikki Dugas and Nadia Elhaj, owner of Cornucopia Popcorn Creations (1914 Guadalupe, Suite B, 477-2676, will culminate a month-long fund drive with a benefit party at their store on Wednesday, Oct. 29th. at 6pm. The party will include complimentary pink cocktails, popcorn samples, and a screening of the irreverent and life-affirming documentary Crazy Sexy Cancer. Proceeds from the sale of all five pink popcorn flavors and the specially-made pairs of breast cancer awareness popcorn balls will benefit the Komen organization. In addition, guests will receive breast self-examination pamphlets and key chains decorated with various sized marbles (to help women in detecting and describing potential tumors)provided by the Austin affiliate of the Susan G. Komen organization.
