For the Women in Your Life!
Pink Party is a not-for-profit 501(c)3 tax exempt foundation. In addition to our annual benefit event (the Annual Gala) we host various events throughout the year, we partner with local groups and organizations, and we continue to provide grants to local organizations and individuals in need throughout our local communities. See out events page for the latest news :)
Our ANNUAL Gala/event will be held in October of every year. This event features music ALL DAY, kicking off with our 4th annual "PINK LACES WALK" (download registration form here), our 4th annual "PINK ACES CRIBBAGE TOURNAMENT" (download registration form here), women's expo, basket raffles, silent auction, and other raffles throughout the day.
The idea of Pink Party originated with a young woman named Kaitlyn Verbruggen in honor of her mother, Connie, an 13 year breast cancer survivor, and for the many, many, countless women (1 in every 8), and men (much more rare), that find themselves diagnosed with this disease annually.
A committee of passionate community members rallied around this idea and Pink Party Breast Cancer Foundation became a reality.
An annual fund-raising event is held every October, during National Breast Cancer Month, to increase awareness and to raise funds for LOCAL breast cancer support organizations and local women and men in need. Other events are held through out the community and neighboring communities throughout the year. This year's Gala will be held on October 12, 2013.
Our First Annual Pink Party held in 2010 was a HUGE success....a Gala Celebration in honor of the women (and men!) in our lives.....mothers, grandmothers, aunts, cousins, sisters, friends, and neighbors. And sometimes men: brothers, uncles, cousins, fathers! In the past 2 years, Pink Party has helped over 120 women (and 1 man) from our local communities, suffering from breast cancer. In addition, funds raised helped us to support the local AMC Cancer Center and TCBH's "CancerVive" program, a 12 week counselling program for those newly diagnosed. We also assisted with mastectomy supplies, genetic testing, wigs, and gifted to the "Sisters Study" UW Madison, and MORE.
