The Tic Tac Brand made a $100,000 donation today to CancerCare, a national nonprofit organization that provides free support services to anyone affected by cancer. CancerCare CEO Helen H. Miller, LCSW was on hand to accept a check during a ceremony held at the GBK Luxury Gift Lounge in honor of the 2011 EMMY Awards in Los Angeles, CA.
The donation was made as part of Tic Tac’s 2011 Shake, Share & Care campaign, which marks the seventh year of Tic Tac’s partnership with CancerCare.
In honor of CancerCare and Breast Cancer Awareness, Tic Tac® has again made available the popular limited edition Pink Grapefruit flavor. The flavor will be available at select drug, grocery and convenience stores through November 2011.
