Peary good idea

Harry & David's latest Pink Pear Collection is available this fall for Breast Cancer Awareness month in October. The Pink Pear Gift Basket is a wooden crate filled with juicy Royal Riviera Pears, strawberry truffles, strawberry yogurt covered pretzels and chocolate strawberries. It's as scrumptious as it is thoughtful. Harry & David is teaming up with the Noreen Fraser Foundation for the fourth year to develop delicious products that help benefit one of the leading causes of cancer deaths amongst women of all races and donate 25 percent of proceeds from all online and in-store sales during the month of October to the Noreen Fraser Foundation.
