11 Ravens, the premier US-based design and manufacturing company for custom luxury game tables including billiards, table tennis, poker, mahjong, etc., is shifting its year-round giving for the month of October, proudly going pink to support the National Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF). The company will donate 5% of the purchase of customized pink tables being highlighted during October, Breast Cancer Awareness Month: the Trigon Pool Table, Cabaret Tennis Table, and Arclight Pool Table. Each sale will send over $1000 to BCRF.
With a mission to prevent and cure breast cancer by advancing the world's most promising research, BCRF provides critical funding for cancer research worldwide to fuel advances in tumor biology, genetics, prevention, treatment, metastasis, and survivorship. Founded in 1993, the foundation is recognized as one of the most financially efficient nonprofits in the country.
“What we value about donating to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation is that they fund people, not just a project, through a unique and streamlined grants program. As a company, we believe investing in well-trained, creative people is the best path to solving great challenges. And curing or preventing breast cancer–the most common cancer in women worldwide and the second most common cancer overall–is certainly a most significant challenge,” states Sea Zeda, Director of Brand Development for 11 Ravens.
According to BCRF, in 2021-2022, the foundation will award $47.5 million in annual grants to 250 scientists from top universities and medical institutions around the globe.
Continues Zeda, “We are fortunate to regularly collaborate with or encounter people who are top in their field, who have ‘changed the game’ in whatever they do. This is why BCRF’s approach resonated and inspired us to select them for our donation, the least we can do in this field.”
