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. 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 both 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 12 – the kitchen at Maize Valley will close at 4 pm on this day.
Maize Valley is hoping area businesses and individuals will join in their support against breast cancer. Sponsorship letter PP.
