SEATTLE Regional retail pharmacy chain Bartell Drugs is sponsoring an annual women’s cancer benefit in Seattle on Oct. 3.
Bartell said Wednesday that it would sponsor the City of Hope’s Walk for Hope event, taking place in a local park. The chain will sell Seattle Chocolates’ Survivor Chick line of chocolate bars, donating $1.50 from each $2.99 bar sold to City of Hope. It also will sell tote bags for $1.99, donating $1 from each purchase to the organization.
City of Hope described the Walk for Hope as the only national series of walks meant to directly benefit research, treatment and education programs for cancers unique to women. The organization has more than 40 collaborations with cancer and medical centers in Washington.
