COLUMBIA, S.C. (October 1, 2010) – Pure Fishing has partnered with the American Breast Cancer Foundation (ABCF) to help with early detection of breast cancer in women and men. Shakespeare® began the program in 2007 and Ugly Stik® joined the program one year later. Donations to date exceed $150,000.
In recognition of October as National Breast Cancer Awareness month, Pure Fishing announces that future donation plans have expanded to encompass Pure Fishing Brands like Berkley®, PENN® and Stren®.
“Pure Fishing is a proud supporter of the American Breast Cancer Foundation and its mission to provide individuals in financial need, their families, and their loved ones with education, support and access to the early detection of Breast Cancer,” said Mike Phillips, Shakespeare Product Manager. “Since choosing American Breast Cancer Foundation as our charity of choice, Pure Fishing has donated over $150,000 to the organization and will continue to support ABCF, which provides life saving breast cancer screening assistance through outreach events.”
The Shakespeare Ladyfish series was created using lightweight actions and lengths, sleek grips, and reels specifically for women anglers. The Shakespeare Ladyfish series includes five spinning combos, spincast combos, rods and reels. The Ladyfish series offers a wide range of actions and lengths designed to help women tackle any fishing challenge.
For 2011, Shakespeare is also offering a new women’s specific Catch More Fish combo – a spincast reel and rod complete with line, hooks and bait. Also new for the coming year is a Ladyfish combo rod and reel and two new Ugly Stik LadyFish kits available in a spincast or spinning rod and reel with bait, line and terminal tackle.
