For over 40 years, DeCicco & Sons Market has been a preferred supermarket destination for Westchester shoppers, winning countless awards for their quality food, products and service. But if you ask anyone of them, they will tell you that that’s not what they are most proud of. As Marie DeCicco, Vice President, puts it, “A life is only important when it has an impact on other lives”.
So it’s not surprising when you pass by the DeCicco & Sons Market on Fifth Avenue in Pelham that their windows are filled with donation pledge cards from their customers, supporting Making Strides Against Breast Cancer campaign. In fact, you’ll see the same filled windows when you visit their other stores, as well, in Larchmont, Harrison, Ardsley, Armonk, Millwood and Brewster! The “walking event” - to be held on October 15th - celebrates survivors and raises awareness and money to help the American Cancer Society save lives. The money is used to fund innovative research, provide free information and support, and to help people reduce their breast cancer risk or find it early when it's most treatable.
DeCicco & Sons is a proud sponsor and donor of the event, joining other businesses and individuals who together have made the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer fundraising initiative a huge success. This year, they’re looking to do even more, as Marie added “1 out of every 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. It’s up to ALL of us to work as hard as we can to support the advanced research being done so we can, hopefully in our lifetime, eradicate this hideous disease.”
Stop by DeCicco & Sons today and pick up a pledge card! For more information, you can contact Katherine Fosella, Event Planner for DeCicco & Sons Events & Cuisine at 914-738-1377.
