Doylestown-based breast cancer nonprofit organization, Pine2Pink Foundation, will be turning the streets of Doylestown pink this October.
Founded in 2017 by local resident Keith Fenimore, the Pine2Pink Foundation centers around helping local breast cancer patients in their treatment and recovery phases. As someone who has had breast cancer touch his life, as his grandmother passed away from breast cancer and his mother is a breast cancer survivor, it’s no doubt that this organization is near and dear to the founder’s heart. The foundation has an immediate and primary goal of helping local breast cancer patients and hopes to expand its reach across the country by eventually turning all Pine Streets into Pink Streets for October’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
Leading up to October, and the time in which the streets of Doylestown will take on a pinkish hue, Pine2Pink Foundation is hosting a variety of events around town, including the following:
Pine2Pink Movie Night: Thelma and Louise (Sept. 20)
A re-mastered screening of Thelma and Louise will be shown at the County Theater from 7:30-9:30 p.m. on Thursday, September 20. In addition to the movie showing, with free popcorn courtesy of Pine2Pink, there will be a Q&A session with Pine2Pink founder Fenimore and breast cancer surgeon Dr. Donna Angotti. A minimum donation of $25 per person will go directly to benefit Pine2Pink and the wonderful work which this organization will be doing for those in the fight against breast cancer. There is a maximum capacity of 145 individuals for this event, so be sure to reserve your spot online ASAP.
Yoga Class in the Grass at the Mercer Museum (Sept. 22)

On Sunday, September 30, from 1-2 p.m., on the lawn at the Mercer Museum, Pine2Pink Foundation will be holding its official launch event and press conference. Mayor Ron Strouse will be on hand, in addition to a number of other special guests. Also, at this time, Pine2Pink will be kicking of its virtual scavenger hunt, where participants can use the app to capture over 150 pink ribbons hidden throughout town and win one of more than 100 prizes.
