Pink Par-Tee 501c3 Fund donations go directly to women of mid-Michigan who are in active treatment fighting breast cancer. A breast cancer diagnosis can destroy the financial health of a patient, as many patients are unable to work. Pink Par-Tee funds provide financial support to help meet the critical expenses such as housing, utilities and transportation.
Plus, funds have also gone toward:
- Four prone breast boards used in radiation therapy, which greatly increases treatment accuracy and success.
- “Breast cancer care packs” given to patients undergoing breast cancer radiation or chemotherapy treatments, and Kroger and gas gift cards.
- Free mammogram services helping local woman regardless of their ability to pay.
- Treatment goggles that greatly aid in the timing of breathing during treatment.
Each year the Pink Par-Tee 501c3 Fund chooses organization(s) that are able to distribute monies raised per the intent of the fund. Monies are then given to the organization whereby fund usage is approved and tracked by the organization and Pink Par-Tee leadership. Once diagnosed, your life changes, you are now a survivor and the support of funds like ours makes surviving just a little easier.
In addition to benefiting breast cancer patients, The Pink Par-Tee fund encourages the event’s Title Sponsor to choose a non-profit dear to them in which we bring awareness and a donation. For example, in 2019 250 children’s books and cuddly bears were given to cancer patients at Mott Children’s Hospital in Ann Arbor. In 2018 Career Dress of Pontiac, MI received over 70 bras that were donated during our fundraising events.
