Dear Pink Zone friends,
This season we are thankful to YOU – our donors, partners, volunteers, beneficiaries and friends – and want to THANK YOU for your support. Without you we could not make the impact towards our mission of raising funds critical in supporting vital breast cancer organizations, charities, and facilities that focus on breast cancer education, prevention, diagnosis, research, and treatment.
We have had an extremely busy fall and wanted to update you on what is taking place now and the next few months as well.
The Lady Lion Basketball Play4Kay Game benefiting Pink Zone, is scheduled for Sunday, February 26, 2017. Online registration for breast cancer survivors is open (papinkzone.org/survivorreg) and we have almost 200 survivors registered to date! It is sure to be a wonderful celebration of survivorship. Sponsorship information for the game can be found here: https://papinkzone.org/wp-content/uploads/2016/06/PinkZone_SponsorshipForm_2017.pdf. We hope that you will partner with us for this incredible event.
As we cheer on the Lady Lions this season, each time they make a 3-point shot, they are raising money for Pink Zone. If you would like to join in the fun, please consider making a pledge per 3-point shot throughout the season. Even if you pledge 50 cents per 3-pointer, it will help us get to our goal! Sign up here: https://pledgeit.org/pinkzone.

Last year, more than 45,000 organizations in 71 countries came together to celebrate #GivingTuesday. Since its founding in 2012, #GivingTuesday has inspired giving around the world, resulting in greater donations, volunteer hours, and activities that bring about real change in communities. We invite you to join the movement and to help get out and give this November 29. Encourage friends and family to donate to Pink Zone (www.papinkzone.org) or a cause or charity that is meaningful to them. Use the hashtag #GivingTuesday to talk about charity and the causes and organizations you support. We hope you will consider donating to Pink Zone!
