Cardinal International and Chef & Sommelier brand announced their Strength and Clarity Partnership with the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) following the inaugural success of their 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 a Chef & Sommelier Cabernet Collection glass to toast the cause and support “pink.” The Cabernet Collection brings strength and clarity, aligning with the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) mission of Helping Women Now through early detection and education. With each purchase of the ever-popular Chef & Sommelier Cabernet Collection made between October 1 and November 30, Cardinal International will make a donation to NBCF. In addition, Cardinal International has recently added several new wine glasses and tumblers to the Cabernet Collection.

“Last year Cardinal raised over $10,000 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 the National Breast Cancer Foundation each time we sell one of the 38 different glasses from the Cabernet Collection, one of our best-selling lines,” adds Alexandre Bollengier, vice president of aales 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 Janelle Hail, NBCF co-founder and CEO. "The funds raised will help us provide free early detection services for those in need in all 50 states."
