It is hard to believe that today is October 1st! As we head into fall, there are two very important, but very different things we celebrate in October—one serious and one just plain old fun!
The first is Breast Cancer Awareness Month-- a very important topic to women. To highlight the topic, Jody's just introduced Breast Cancer Awareness Popcorn. It is pink and white kettle corn- but the most important part is that for a portion of every sale will be donated to the Eastern Virginia Medical School (“EVMS”) for breast cancer research at the Leroy T. Canoles Cancer Research Center. This is particularly meaningful to me for two reasons: First, Leroy (“Buddy”) Canoles was my partner when I practiced law at Kaufman & Canoles, and this center is in his memory. Second, the school has been very important in the lives of our family -- my husband did his residency at EVMS and is very involved with the school, and our son, Jason, just graduated from that medical school, and received a fantastic education.
Here is a picture of the popcorn! It can be purchased at our store or online.
The second celebration is far less serious—Halloween! For this holiday, we are offering orange and caramel Halloween Funfetti. Here is a picture of the popcorn.
For those that want a little more gore- we also offer Black and Orange Halloween Corn—check out this picture:
We are selling our Halloween corn through various outlets—in Hampton Roads they can be purchased at our store and at the Hunt Club Farm Halloween Celebration, where Jody’s will have a tent—come out and see the festivities! In addition, many of our retailers are offering Jody’s Halloween Funfetti—we are working on a map for our website to show you where our products are offered. It is not ready yet, but please feel free to call (866-797-JODY) or email (firstname.lastname@example.org) our GREAT Customer Service Representative, Betsy, and she will let you know where in your area you may find it!
Here’s wishing you a great beginning to Fall!
