February 23, 2015-Private Pink Party-Invitations with RSVP's will be sent out. This is an invitation only event.
This is the Breast Party in the city. 
This is a Feel Good Event. There is no income involved. It is to give some sunshine to those who need it. This is 
possible because of local donations and because of a specific created fund. It is local and the referrals come from 4 
medical breast cancer providers.

This is our 3rd Annual Event. The first year we had the event at Hawthorne Suites. This donated event
included two local caters, one musican,  games, drawings, and freebies. We will never forget the games
and the "Breast Cake." The second year was at Inn on the Lake, food was catered by Savories. We had
a larger space, had three musicians, many, many pampering stations, pink limo rides, drawings, and 
freebies. It was amazing. This year it is going to be a light supper, speakers, entertainment, drawings. 
It will be motivating, lots of laughing, inspirational, and lots of kicks and giggles.
