Knott’s Goes Pink For the Cure With Susan G. Komen
Disclosure: I will be attending a media event at Knott’s Berry Farm courtesy of Gigasavvy to hear about the Susan G. Komen & Knott’s partnership. The Knott’s Ticket giveaway is also kindly provided by Giga Savvy! All thoughts and opinions remain my own.
It’s no secret that I love the amusement parks that Southern California has to offer. When I heard that one of my favorite places was teaming up with a good cause like Susan G Komen to help fight breast cancer, I knew I had to help spread the word and share about the wonderful work they were going to do together.
For the months of February and March, Knott’s Berry Farm and Susan G. Komen of Orange County are working together to raise money for breast cancer awareness, services and research by offering a very special “Pink Ticket” and limited edition specially designed “pink” merchandise. Knott’s will offer a specially discounted “Pink Ticket” February 1st-March 31st in support of the organization.
In Orange County, one in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer. Thanks to Komen’s funding of research, new treatments and awareness of the importance of annual mammograms to detect breast cancer in its earliest and most curable stages, the survival rate for breast cancer has risen dramatically over the 33 years of the organization. The Orange County Komen Affiliate provides mammograms for uninsured women and works with other organizations to bring information to people throughout the county.
The promotion will provide guests with the opportunity to enjoy Knott’s world class entertainment, attractions and specially-themed “pink” décor, while supporting an important cause that touches many women. Starting February 1, through March 31, guests can purchase “Pink Tickets” for theme park admission only online at www.knotts.com. A portion of the “Pink Tickets” proceeds will benefit Susan G. Komen Orange County.
Knott’s Berry Farm has kicked off the promotion by donating $25,000 to Susan G. Komen Orange County. The money that the theme park has already donated will provide 400 women in Orange County with life-saving breast health services. Guests entering the theme park will be greeted by a pink Knott’s Berry Farm for the Cure display adorned with Snoopy and his pal Woodstock. Guests can purchase a commemorative limited edition magnet to place on the special display in honor of, or in memory of, someone affected by breast cancer. The magnet will be sold at select merchandise locations inside Knott’s Berry Farm and all proceeds will benefit Komen Orange County.
