Dooney & Bourke Pink Ribbon Tote

Dooney & Bourke Pink Ribbon Tote

Fine leather goods maker Dooney & Bourke has created a bag to benefit Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF). Though the company has supported breast cancer research for many years, the Pink Ribbon Tote is its first bag designed exclusively for the cause.

The Pink Ribbon Tote will be available in October for Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and for every bag sold, Dooney & Bourke will donate $5 to BCRF. The bag is made of durable cotton canvas in navy blue with pink piping or pink with hot pink piping, and has leather-trimmed handles. It retails for $58, and will be sold at Dooney & Bourke retail and outlet stores, and on

Also, on Oct. 5 from 2 to 5 p.m., stop by Dooney & Bourke at Ala Moana Center for a special in-store event featuring 20 percent off all regular-priced items (excluding the Pink Ribbon Tote). There also will be cookies and refreshments. And the first 25 people at the store who purchase a Pink Ribbon Tote also will receive a Dooney & Bourke gift bag with goodies inside.
