We Couldn’t Do It Without You
Pink Ribbon is incredibly fortunate to have a community who supports our organization and the services and programs we provide.
Each year we are contacted by various businesses and groups who want to support Pink Ribbon Society. For the most part businesses and groups contact us during October or Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Some of them are recurring fundraisers and others just find us and appreciate the fact that our funds are kept local to our community.

The Times Media Company has been a major media supporter since the inception of Pink Ribbon. The services they have provided have been invaluable – newspaper advertising, special articles, raffle contributions, storage space, Times representation on the Pink Ribbon Committee and pretty much anything else we ask for. When we say we couldn’t do it with you, we mean it.
Strack & Van Til has also been a major supporter since our inception. They have donated desserts, centerpieces, committee representation, and gift bag products. Again, when we really need something, we know we can call on Stracks to be there for us.
Another perfect example of how Stracks has supported Pink Ribbon in a BIG way is through their Check Out Challenge Program. To date, the Strack & Van Til Families and Times Media Company have raised and donated to Prnk Ribbon over $ 94,000 during their annual Check Out Challenge.
Southshore Ladies Thursday Morning Golf League – the ladies of the Thursday Morning Golf League have become our friends. Three years ago, they made the decision that they wanted to keep the money their raise at their annual golf outing for breast cancer in the local community to support local breast cancer patients.
To date, they have donated over $ 30,000. Now mind you, this isn’t a huge league, but they are certainly generous. The partnership we have forged with these ladies is awesome. They are not only supporters, but have also become true friends to Pink Ribbon. Thank you, ladies. We look forward to seeing you again next year, awesome ladies.
