Wellesley High School students Katie Lofblad and Tali Peretti have organized a fundraiser for the Avon Foundation for Women and Breast Cancer as a senior project.
Lofblad, who works at Truly Yogurt, says she and Peretti have joined forces with the ice cream/frozen yogurt shop owner so that 50 cents of every Flavor of the Day (Candy Cane) purchase on May 4 from 12-930pm will go to the Avon Foundation.
“The main reason we’ve chosen this cause is because cancer, in one form or another, has affected many of our friends and family members. The Avon Foundation also runs a walk for Breast Cancer every year in Boston; Tali and I participated a few years ago and were inspired by the positive energy from all of the walkers and volunteers that day. We are volunteering at the walk this May and thought that the Avon Foundation for Women would be a deserving charity for our efforts,” according to Lofblad.
