With some of the highest rates in the country, breast cancer is something that touches almost all of us on Long Island, and like so many others, finding a cure is a cause near and dear to our hearts. That’s why we’re focused on coming together with our generous community to raise funds to support the cutting-edge research happening right in our own backyard, at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory. 

During the month of October, a portion of every premium paint purchase made in any of our 32 Aboff’s stores and online will be donated to support the lab’s research. 

 “We are thrilled to revive the Breast Cancer Awareness Month partnership with CSHL. We did something similar in 2012 and are excited to bring it back. It’s a cause dear to our hearts and we’re confident that our fundraising efforts are going to the right place.” – Matthew Aboff
