THE Pink Party is an annual Breast Cancer Fundraiser held by Maize Valley in support of the Susan G Komen Foundation. The Susan G Komen Foundation is the largest contributor to Breast Cancer Research in the world.
This fun evening is a celebration of life! Held on May 9, 2017 it features live music, wine/beer, hors d’oeuvres, raffle baskets, silent auction, live auction, wine pull and more. Every guest receives a commemorative wine glass to take home!
Breast Cancer has had a profound impact on the family of Maize Valley – current owners Michelle Bakan, and her mother, Donna Vaughan are both breast cancer survivors. Donna’s sister is also a survivor. Donna’s sister-in-law and mother-in-law passed from breast cancer. Michelle’s sister in law also passed from breast cancer.
Michelle and her husband Bill have made commitments since 2010 to participate in the Susan G Komen 3 day walk for a cure. In order to participate, they must each raise $2300 and then they are permitted to walk 60 miles over the course of 3 days to show their support for all who have been impacted by this terrible disease. The Pink Party is the annual fundraiser for Bill and Michelle to reach their goal – each year the friends of Maize Valley have helped us raise between $7,000 and $10,000!!!
This year’s event is on May 9, 2017 – please make plans to join us that evening as we raise money for this very worthwhile cause!
Maize Valley is hoping area businesses and individuals will join in their support against breast cancer. Sponsorship letter PP.
