Paint It Pink
Are you ready to paint the town pink?! The benefit will be a night of drinking and dancing, with a raffle and silent auction. We'll be rolling out the pink carpet and encourage everyone to wear pink. It will be a night that you won't want to miss! Purchased tickets can mailed to you, or printed at home, please click on "Begin Order" to start the process.
On Thursday, October 6th, 2011, we will be hosting the inaugural Paint it Pink Gala in honor of a young girl named Kim Sibbach. Kim was diagnosed with stage four breast cancer in August of 2008, at the age of 23, with no prior family history of breast cancer. The benefit will be a pink night of fun and fundraising at The Stockroom at 230, on Fayetteville Street in downtown Raleigh.
Kim fought hard for almost three years, and her positive attitude has inspired many. Sadly, on April 28, 2011, Kim lost her fight with breast cancer. While she may be gone, she is not forgotten, as we come together to continue the fight to find cure for breast cancer.
All proceeds will be donated to 1in9 (www.1in9.com), a breast cancer charity that works closely with UNC to help women who are currently in treatment but lack the means necessary to continue it- whether it's transportation, food for their children, hotels while they are at UNC...1in9 gives these women the support group that they don't have but desperately need. If there was one thing that Kim was always in awe of, it was the amount of support she had from her church, her friends, her family. We want to pass that on to others.
I leave you with an excerpt from Kim's blog, where she has been documenting her journey (www.myleftone.blogspot.com):
"Most of my scars are hidden, so the average passerby does not know or see the trophies I carry for winning the battle. Because really, that's what this is...a war. And every battle takes some sort of toll on me. Some seen. Some not. And I try to not let the battles weigh on me and my attitude too much. But sometimes I get tired of having to fight so hard just to have one day that I'm not tired, one day that something doesn't hurt, one day without a doctor appointment, one day without thinking about cancer...Today has been that day.
I woke up today and I felt good.
I felt AWESOME.
I feel AWESOME.
Today I won the battle. "
We're fighting a war with cancer, and every day and every dollar is another step closer to victory. Together, we can fight this. And we can win.
