This delicious drink is made up of 100% blue agave tequila infused for two days with fresh watermelon and Hibiscus flowers. It is shaken with a touch of limejuice and agave nectar and garnished with hibiscus flowers.

With words added on the top and bottom, the message reads, "All you need is love, love is all you need." It's the perfect symbol for a renewed commitment to make a difference in the lives of women and their families who have been challenged by this disease.

To Brighton, the Power of Pink represents the power that each one of us has to make a difference in the lives of the women who mean so much to us. Anyone can be diagnosed with this disease- not just the elderly and middle-aged, but thousands in their 20s and 30s. In the U.S. alone, an estimated 240,000 new cases of breast cancer will be diagnosed this year; 11,100 under age 40. Each year, 40,000 women die of breast cancer - 1,100 are under age 40.

This beautiful Brighton bracelet was available from October 1st to October 31st at the the Brighton store at Kierland Commons in Scottsdale and this store selected AIBH as their beneficiary this year. $10 from every bracelet sold at this location was donated to AIBH!
