October 1, 2015 – Cardinal International and Chef & Sommelier® brand proudly announce their Strength and Clarity Partnership with National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc. (NBCF) following the inaugural success of its partnership last year. Cardinal International, a leading tableware manufacturer of high-end glassware, dinnerware, and flatware, is offering customers an opportunity to join the fight against breast cancer.

Raise your Chef & Sommelier® Cabernet Collection glasses to toast the cause and support “pink.” The Cabernet Collection brings strength and clarity, aligning with NBCF’s mission of Helping Women Now® through early detection education. With each purchase of the ever-popular Chef & Sommelier® Cabernet Collection made between October 1 and November 30, 2015, Cardinal International will make a donation to NBCF. And, to add even more excitement, Cardinal International has recently added several new wine glasses and tumblers to the Cabernet Collection. To see the full and extensive range of qualifying glassware items, visit NBCF – Cardinal International Product List and to see the new shapes, visit New Products Brochure.

“Last year Cardinal raised over $10,000 in 3 months for NBCF and we are pleased to be continuing the partnership this year,” says Bryan O’Rourke, President and CEO of Cardinal International. “One out of eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer at some time in their lives, and that includes many in our industry. We are proud to play a part in fighting this disease.”

“This year, we will make a donation to National Breast Cancer Foundation each time we sell one of the 38 different glasses from the Cabernet Collection, one of our best-selling lines,” according to Alexandre Bollengier, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Cardinal International. “We are once again honored to be supporting NBCF in the fight against breast cancer and we count on doing it for many more years to come.”

“We are excited to partner with Cardinal International again this year to provide help and inspire hope to those affected by breast cancer,” says NBCF Co-Founder & CEO, Janelle Hail. “The funds they raise will help us provide free early detection services for those in need in all 50 states.”
