Pine2Pink, Doylestown’s local breast cancer organization, is rolling out the fundraising events this October, which happens to be Breast Cancer Awareness Month. By joining forces with local restaurants, shops and venues, Pine2Pink is providing many opportunities for individuals to take part in fun events and enjoy dining and product specials, while raising money for breast cancer patients and Doylestown Health’s Cancer Institute.
“Doylestown is a special place and really the perfect town to launch Pine2Pink. The local retailers and merchants are so giving and ‘community first’ minded,” states Keith Fenimore, executive director/co-founder of Pine2Pink. “They embraced Pine2Pink and found creative ways to work with us to support local breast cancer patients.”
“As for the deals and special offers, my dad, Ron Fenimore, suggested I contact Jules Thin Crust early on to see if they would be willing to make a Pine2Pink Pizza and split the proceeds with Pine2Pink,” continues Fenimore. “They agreed, and from that one idea, we have now engaged with close to 30 local business owners and created proceed sharing throughout our monthlong Pine2Pink program, which we coined Eat, Drink and Buy Pink!”
Here are some of the events and dining/product specials taking place throughout October in support of Pine2Pink:
Crafting Event at Board & Brush (Oct. 10)
On Wednesday, October 10, put your creativity and fundraising efforts to work at the Board & Brush from 6:30–9:30 p.m. For $65 per person (must be at least 16 years old), each participant will be able to create their own gorgeous wood sign, with step-by-step instruction from the Board & Brush staff. 20% of the proceeds from each participant fee will go directly to benefit Pine2Pink.
