“The bead is compatible with all major bead jewelry and it is a welcome addition to any bracelet,” Cathy Varunok, Co-Founder of Miles of Hope said. “It is an honor for us to have a commemorative bead along with other Hudson Valley charities . Five dollars from each bead sale comes directly to Miles of Hope to fund support services for people affected by breast cancer in the 8 counties of the Hudson Valley,” Mrs. Varunok added.
The bracelets cost $49 at De’s and customers chose whichever beads they like from a large display. The Miles of Hope bead has a pink enamel ‘road ribbon’ which is the logo of the Miles of Hope Breast Cancer Foundation.
Beads are for sale at De’s and at the Miles of Hope Spring Brunch on Sunday, May 6, at the Grandview in Poughkeepsie from 11-2:00.
