Keep Teeth Pearly White:

BORRACHA Wine Wipes/MARIAN MEDICAL CENTER: For the month of October, Borracha will be donating $2 for every $25 Borracha “CHEERS TO A CURE” set, which includes a limited-edition Syrah blend paired with the line’s signature Wine Wipes, to The Breast Cancer Care Program at Marian Medical Center in Santa Maria, CA. The Borracha “CHEERS TO A CURE” blend (Syrah and Zinfandel) is produced and bottled by Ranchero Cellars in Paso Robles, and features dark fruit aromas with plum and black raspberry leading to exotic spice, pepper, and toasty oak notes. The palate is plush and smooth, with a burst of fruit reminiscent of pie cherries and a kiss of sweet oak that lingers on the finish. Wine Wipes are made for red wine lovers, and the proprietary blend of stain-removing and teeth-protecting ingredients will help you smile pretty, not purple, and won’t interfere with the taste of your wine! The Breast Cancer Care Program at Marian Medical Center provides free medical services to patients in need including mammograms, dietary counseling, exercise regimen, follow-up care and support groups, and also helps low-income patients with basic living expenses such as rent and utility bills. //

POMEGA/TO CELEBRATE LIFE BREAST CANCER FOUNDATION: Biodynamic and organic skincare line Pomega will be donating 10% of proceeds from sales of ALL Pomega5 products in October (BCA Month) and November (Pomegranate Month) to the CA-based To Celebrate Life Breast Cancer Foundation. The Pomega5 products feature potent natural ingredients like pomegranate seed oil/CLnA, which has been shown to stimulate cell production and promote regeneration of the epidermis. Multiple studies demonstrate the efficacy of pomegranate seed oil in treating multiple diseases, including breast, prostate and skin cancer. To Celebrate Life Breast Cancer Foundation is a volunteer organization that works to increase awareness about Breast Cancer, offers financial help to those living with the disease and provides grants for early detection screening, support programs, and educational services. //
