Survivor Soireé in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month

In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month, we have partnered with event planning company byrd + bleeker in Texas and New York to spread some pink love.

Both Libby and I wanted to find a way to help in the fundraising efforts to promote the advancement of breast cancer research. We have known and been touched by the courageous stories of these survivors, many of whom are close to us. This inspiration gave birth to the concept of Survivor Soirée— a pink party to celebrate celebrate the vitality of the women who have survived breast cancer. The creative strength of both our companies resulted in these "New Beginnings" letterpress invitations (by chewing the cud) and the "Sweetness of Life" candy bar (by byrd + bleeker).

Perhaps it’s your sister. Your mother. Your best friend. Celebrate their triumph with a “Survivor Soirée”.
• Surprise your guests with these “New Beginnings” letterpress invitations by chewing the cud.
• Make your event sweeter by having byrd + bleeker create a “Sweetness of Life” candy bar and more pink party goodness.

Sweetness of Life Candy Bar.
These are actually "Breast Cancer Awareness" candies; Hershey Kisses, York Peppermint Patties, Dove Dark Chocolate Pieces and Mars M&Ms Promise Blend. A portion of those candies' purchase price also goes towards the Susan G. Komen foundation - so really, it's a charity two-fer!
