It’s our favorite time of year! Time for the Shay Sharpe’s Pink Wishes, Black Tie Fundraiser.
Every year we host a beautiful evening of food, fun, fundraising and philanthropy, to assist in our wish granting and education efforts. This year, we have 3 pending wish requests. Help us make these wishes come true!
Being a 9 year breast cancer survivor, who has lingering side effects and mounting medical expenses, I know first hand, the hardship that could be created by spending $100 on a fundraiser ticket. For this reason, we have created a Crowdrise Fundraiser in hopes of sending 30 breast cancer survivors to this event, at no expense to them.
Every year, we receive messages from young women, thanking us for giving them the opportunity, to attend this event. Some of the women have never attended a black tie event and some have never worn a gown. This event also gives women the opportunity to meet and take photos with other young survivors, many they only know from social media. Sadly these pictures have been used in the obituaries of past wish recipients and attendees.
Donate today. Every little bit counts! $10, $20, $50… whatever you can afford. Even if you cant donate financially, please share this message with your friends, followers, co-workers and family. You can donate at www.crowdrise.com/2014SSPWBTF. We thank you in advance and we hope to see you on Sunday, September 28th. xoxo ~ Madame President
