This past year, we hit a big number…..$300,000 raised for Focused on a Cure! We feel so blessed to be able to make a difference in our community through this organization. This is possible because of supporters like you who attend our Girls Night Out, Pink at the Rink, Piggin’ Out for Pink and shopping benefit nights!
While breast cancer certainly isn’t fun and games, we like to make Focused on a Cure events fun whenever we can! Events like Pink at the Rink are a bright spot in our fundraising efforts because it’s an opportunity to bring entire families together for an evening of fun and new experiences for many!
Pink at the Rink brings back childhood memories for parents, and is the setting for new memories for the young ones! It’s the perfect family bonding experience and these families sure had fun.
Pink at the Rink has been a main-stay event for Focused on a Cure for the past eight years now! All proceeds from the night are donated back to FOC.
When everyone wasn’t skating laps around the rink, they were entering raffle tickets in to one of the many raffle baskets up for grabs! A BIG “thank you” goes out to each of our vendors who donated a basket!
Baskets included everything from beauty products to steak house gift cards! Thank you, Erin with Arbonne, Mainstream Pets, Chelsea Price with Lula Roe, Cabo Winery, Logan’s Steak House, Jersey Mikes on , East Coast Wings and Erica Wilson with Scentsy. Because of their raffle basket donations, we were able to raise $650 from raffle tickets alone!
The big ticket item of the night was the pair of pink skates donated by Frye’s Roller Rink!
All in all, the evening was a huge success! We added more than $850 to this year’s funds from this event alone! Be sure to like our Facebook page to stay up to date on Focused on a Cure events. Every donation makes a big impact for local women to detect and fight breast cancer! #SupportLocal
