Pink Wings September 2012 Newsletter and Specials

The kids are back in school and Breast Cancer Awareness Month is just around the corner. Where has this year gone?

The summer ended with a fantastic Play for the Cure event in Salem, Oregon in August.  The goal for this year was to raise $45,000. They surpassed this goal and raised $58,000!!! Way to go Kris Knox and Play for the Cure Salem, Oregon!!  Our Pink Wings booth was also a success at the event and we nearly sold out of our new black wicking shirts with the big pink ribbon and wings. The shirts looked great on the softball players.

UPCOMING EVENTS

Pink Wings will be busy over the next few months at different events through out the country. We just had a Pink Wings booth at the Komen Health Expo for the Portland Race for the Cure last weekend. This weekend, my sister and I will hold fundraising events for FORCE (Facing our risk of cancer empowered). We will raffle off a 40” Flat Screen Emerson HDTV (raffle tickets are just $10 and being sold to those who live within driving distance of Salem, Oregon).

This event will be for kids ages 5-12. We have an Agent G bully prevention workshop and also a Board Breaking and Numchucks session.

NEW ITEMS

We have some beautiful new designs coming to the Pink Wings website in October. Check out our new Cross Pink Ribbon pin. It will also come as a charm/pendant with the Pink Ribbon and it will come as a pin with a Teal ribbon and also in a Purple ribbon. Our new Bust 2012 pins will be here in October. We liked this design so much that we are doing it in 2 colors. These items are on the website under New Items for pre-order. They will ship as soon as they arrive in October. Order yours today!

Our new Ribbon and Wings shirts have been a great hit at all of our events this summer. These great quality v-neck t-shirts are just $20 for white and come in sizes S-3XL. The shirt is also available with the word Survivor down the side. This shirt runs big, so you may want to order one size down. The black shirts also come in sizes S-3XL with or without the word Survivor on them. They are $22. Shirts are also available at fundraising and wholesale pricing.

The wicking shirts come in Pink in sizes XS-2XL with or without the word Survivor. These shirts run a little small- so you should order one size up from what you would normally wear. Wicking shirts are $26 and also come in White or Black in sizes S-2XL.

Our white and pink ribbon pins for Co-Survivors make a great gift in the month of October to give to those who have helped you in your journey to become a survivor. Give one to your mom, your sisters, your husband, your friends or your co-workers…anyone who has helped you along the way and has been affected by breast cancer is considered a co-survivor. The Co-Survivor pin is available in 3 different styles. We also have many of the dated walk pink ribbon pins in stock from 2004 to the present. Finish your collection to commemorate the walks you have completed over the years, or start your collection today!
