Representatives of the Women In Action Against Cancer Coalition recently held an outreach at Riesbeck's in Wintersville on Sept. 21 and 22, selling tickets for a 50-50 drawing and also promoting the store's Breast Cancer Awareness Lunchboxes.
On Fridays in October, which is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, patrons can order ahead a sandwich or salad lunchbox for $4.99, and a portion of the proceeds will go toward breast cancer research and local cancer support.
Orders can be placed on Wednesdays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. to pick up on Fridays between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., according to Scott Briggs, store manager

The sandwich lunch will consist of: two pink dinner roll sandwiches that will be either made of Delallo Virginia ham and Delallo baby swiss cheese; Delallo gold classic turkey and Delallo mini provolone cheese; or Delallo buffalo chicken breast and Delallo mini colby cheese; a bag of Utz potato chips; two pink iced butter cookies; a bottle of water; and 4 ounces of potato or macaroni salad.
The salad lunch box offers a mini tossed salad with choice of ranch or Italian dressing, an apple, two pink iced butter cookies, a bottle of water and potato or macaroni salad.
While ordering in advance for the lunchboxes is encouraged, Briggs said a few extras will be made to accommodate walk-ins.
"The community of Wintersville has been fantastic in their support of this," Briggs said.
Orders can be placed by calling the store at (740) 264-4242.
The lunchboxes are available at all Riesbeck locations, including Toronto where the phone number is (740) 537-4300.
Last year, WIAACC received funds from the event.
