Target Your Breasts on Mother's Day, in Support of Rethink Breast Cancer by Visiting Jack Astor's

BURLINGTON, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - May 5, 2008) - RETHINK BREAST CANCER and Jack Astor's are teaming up this Mother's Day to raise awareness and raise some money.

"Mother's Day is a time to celebrate - it's a busy time for us at Jack's, with families getting together to enjoy great food, have some fun and say thanks to Mom," said Kristen Hamilton, Director of Marketing for Jack Astor's. "We believe it's also a great opportunity to contribute to a cause that helps Moms every day of the year."

"We are proud to partner with Jack Astor's for this Mother's Day fundraising initiative, and hope to remind Mothers and Daughters to target their breast health through our Fashion Targets Breast Cancer messaging". said Alison Gordon, VP, Strategy, Marketing and Communications for Rethink Breast Cancer.

The Mother's Day event takes place from Tuesday, April 29th to Sunday, May 11th, 2008 at all Jack Astor's locations. Many servers will be purchasing Rethink's Fashion Targets Breast Cancer T-shirts to wear in the restaurants in support of this initiative. $2 from every shirt purchased will be donated to Rethink.

Guests can also get involved in the cause by ordering one of Jack Astor's most popular signature menu items. For every purchase of Lobster and Crab Dip, Frozen Raspberry Twister, or Jack's Apple Pie, Jack Astor's will donate a dollar to Rethink.

"Our family at Jack Astor's takes great pride in our community involvement, and we are excited to once again support Rethink's innovative research, support, education and advocacy programs," added Hamilton. "We're hoping our Rethink Breast Cancer T-shirt-wearing servers are busy serving up as many Frozen Raspberry Twisters, Lobster and Crab Dips and Apple Pies as possible, as Guests enjoy time with their Moms."
