Pink Ribbon Bagel sales will take place in all 28 Pittsburgh café locations; the closest Paneras to residents of the Pine-Richland community are:
at Shoppers Plaza, 4960 William Flynn Highway, Allison Park;
Panera also encourages people to "like" the "Virtual Pink Ribbon Bagel" on its Facebook page from Sept. 30 to Oct. 31 and 10 cents will be donated to the Dr. Susan Love Research Foundation to help fight breast cancer.
The Pink Ribbon Bagel was created 10 years ago when Sue Stees, a Panera Bread franchisee and breast cancer survivor, had the idea to create the bagel to raise money and awareness for breast cancer, according to Panera's Facebook page.
Donations from the sales of the Pink Ribbon Bagel have now raised more than $1 million for breast cancer charities, according to a Panera press release.
