The business raised a total of $64,289.71 to donate to the cancer center through the TLC Garden Centers’ “Plant It Pink” event in October, which is also Breast Cancer Awareness Month. 100% of all sales on the day of the event were donated to further breast cancer research.
“We are thrilled to support breast cancer research in Oklahoma, and we’re thankful for our loyal customers who supported our efforts during ‘Plant It Pink’ day,” said Frank McDonald, president of TLC Garden Centers.
The event was held in support of those affected by breast cancer, such as Katie Keyser, whose husband worked with TLC Garden Centers when Keyser was first diagnosed with the disease in 2018.
“TLC rallied behind us in a huge way,” Keyser said.
Keyser now works with Stephenson Cancer Center, where the funds donated will be used to further breast cancer research in Oklahoma.
Stephenson Cancer Center serves as Oklahoma’s only National Cancer Institute (NCI) Designated Cancer Center.
