Full Moon Bar-B-Que is supporting the fight against breast cancer by launching its “Half Moon Cookies for a Cause” campaign benefiting the Breast Cancer Research Foundation of
Alabama (BCRFA). The iconic half moon cookie tins have gone pink and $1 from every pink tin of cookies purchased beginning Sept. 10 will be donated back to the organization. All money raised through the fundraiser will then be matched by Coca-Cola Bottling Co.
“We’re thankful for Full Moon BBQ’s commitment to engaging the community in funding breast cancer research in Alabama, which will save lives,” said Beth Bradner Davis, Executive Director of the BCRFA.
“Half Moon Cookies are a local favorite, and we’re excited that these sweet treats will be supporting innovative research to eradicate breast cancer.”
Considered one of the essential “100 Dishes to Eat in Alabama,” Full Moon’s Half Moon Cookies are made from scratch daily with fresh ingredients including southern pecans and decadent chocolate chips. Crisp from the oven, each cookie is hand-dipped in rich, melted milk chocolate, Half Moon Cookie Tins come with 20 cookies and can be purchased at any Full Moon Bar-B-Que location or online at FullMoonBBQ.com to schedule a pick up in store for $22.99 with $1 of every tin going back to the BCRFA.
“Full Moon is a proud supporter of BRCFA and excited for this partnership to continue to give back to such a worthy cause,” said David Maluff, Full Moon BBQ Owner. “Place your order for your pink cookie tins now as we are confident these will go quick.”
