Peach Glen, PA, October 18, 2011 – Musselman’s Apple Sauce and the National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc. (NBCF) today launched the You’re The Inspiration campaign to support the fight against breast cancer. Musselman’s will support the NBCF’s mission - to save lives through early detection and provide mammograms for those in need - by donating $1 for every new “like” on the Musselman’s Facebook page.

The You’re the Inspiration campaign also includes a sweepstakes, featuring three grand prize trips to the Musselman’s Brian Boitano Skating Spectacular and 99 featured prizes in the form of digital downloads of the new Chicago album, Chicago XXXIII – “O Christmas Three.” Entries can be submitted via Musselman’s Facebook page.

Musselman’s recently launched another part of the You’re the Inspiration campaign, a photo submission contest that allows entrants to submit a photo and description of the person that inspires them to live life to its fullest. The photo and description finalist that garners the most votes will win a grand prize trip to one of the 2012 Disson Skating events, including exclusive, behind the scenes access to the figure skating cast at the event.

“Breast cancer has impacted millions of families, many of whom could have benefitted from early detection and early treatment,” said Bob Fisher, Vice President of Marketing at Knouse Foods. “We’re thrilled to partner with the NBCF in their efforts to provide early detection and mammograms to help those in need.  ”
