Brighton’s Power of Pink Campaign Marks a Dozen Years of Making a Difference Through Supporting Breast Cancer organizations

Once again, Brighton is honored to pledge its support of breast cancer charities nationwide with its twelfth annual Power of Pink program. To date, through the sale of its exclusive Power of Pink bracelets, the company has donated more than $5.3 million to over 300 breast cancer organizations across the nation.

For the fifth consecutive year, the Brighton Collectibles store at the Maine Mall in South Portland has chosen the Maine Breast Cancer Coalition as the recipient of funds raised through the “Power of Pink” initiative.

For the first time ever, Brighton will offer two limited edition bracelets, available from September 26th while supplies last. For every bracelet purchased, Brighton, along with its specialty stores, will contribute much needed dollars to breast cancer charities.


For each $60 bracelet purchased, Brighton will donate $5 to a breast cancer charity. All of the company’s 190 Brighton stores will match this donation, and the company is encouraging its more than 700 participating specialty stores to do the same, bringing the total donation to $10 per bracelet.

Brighton’s founder and owner, Jerry Kohl, explains how, with these bracelets, “Each one of us can make a difference. By joining together, we can create change.”

Additionally, Brighton stores are offering limited edition pink leather goods and accessories and will donate 10% of the purchase price to breast cancer charities. With more than 300 fund-raising events scheduled in stores throughout the country during the first weekend of October, Brighton’s intention is to set off a chain reaction of donations to breast cancer organizations.

The Maine Mall Brighton Collectibles store has been a long-time supporter of the Maine Breast Cancer Coalition’s work. We greatly appreciate their efforts!
