Harry & David Introduces Latest Pink Pear Collection, Charitable Gifts to Support Breast Cancer Research

MEDFORD, OR--(Marketwired - Aug 22, 2013) - Harry & David announces today the 2013 Pink Pear Collection that will be available this October in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. For the fourth consecutive year, Harry & David has partnered with the Noreen Fraser Foundation, a non-profit organization that focuses on advancing research, prevention and treatment of women's cancers, to raise awareness and support in the fight against women's cancers. A portion of the proceeds from the Pink Pear Collection will go to the Noreen Fraser Foundation.

Harry & David's Pink Pear Collection is made up of four charitable gourmet gifts, each with a pink twist. The collection includes Pink Truffles, Pink Moose Munch® Popcorn, the Pink Pear Gift Box and the Pink Pear Gift Basket. Harry & David will donate 25 percent of the proceeds of all online and in-store sales of Pink Pear products during the month of October to the Noreen Fraser Foundation.

Pink Truffles are a decadent and delightful treat made in Harry & David's candy kitchen with a signature blend of chocolate. The truffles are a thoughtful gift for a worthy cause, available in-store and online for $19.95.

Pink Moose Munch® Popcorn is created as a limited edition Moose Munch® Popcorn, produced in Harry & David's candy kitchen with cherries, vanilla, almonds and cashews, available in-store only for $12.95.

Pink Pear Gift Box is a gift that continues to give long after the box has arrived. It features Harry & David's famous Royal Riviera® Pears, including two wrapped in pink foil, in a beautifully wrapped gift box, available in-store and online for $19.95.

Pink Pear Gift Basket is a wooden crate filled with juicy Royal Riviera® Pears, strawberry truffles, strawberry yogurt covered pretzels and chocolate strawberries. It's as scrumptious as it is thoughtful -- available online for $39.95.
