It was an unbelievably awesome year for Pink Ribbon Society. As we take a look back on 2016, we want to thank all those who supported our efforts making it possible for us to achieve at the level we have accomplished.. We could not succeed without the help of our contributors and sponsors.
Money raised by Pink Ribbon is used to support the men and women of our community whose lives have been touched by breast cancer. Although, we hope that a cure for breast cancer is found SOON, we are very aware of the immediate needs breast cancer patients have following this devastating diagnosis and we have made a pledge to keep the funds we raise in Lake, Porter, Jasper and Newton Counties in Northwest Indiana.
As we close 2016 and embark on a bigger and more prosperous year we are very proud to share our accomplishments. To date, Pink Ribbon has returned over $ 400,000 back into our community through contributions and donations to individuals and other organizations who share our passion for the cause.
We have one goal is mind and that is to do whatever we can to make the weeks and months and even years, following the diagnosis of breast cancer a more tolerable time for the patient and their caregivers and families AND to do whatever we can to encourage women to have their annual mammograms….we know that the best cure is early detection.
Some especially exciting new for our organization this year, is that we have found a new home. As of January 1, 2017, Pink Ribbon will have a new home. Our new address is 303 East 89th Avenue, Suite 100, Merrillville, IN 46410 and our new number is (219) 472-0407. Of course, our website address (pinkribbonsociety,org) and our facebook address of Pink Ribbon Society will remain the same.
Moving into this location will provide more visibility and accessibility to the community and give Pink Ribbon a permanent place to call home. Those who are in need of our services can feel free to drop in to see us when needed. To begin with, we will have limited hours on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday each week from 9:00 am – 4:00 p.m. Hopefully hours we expand as time goes on.
In the meantime, we are just a phone call away and look forward to a really awesome 2017. AND don’t forget to mark your calendars for the 16th Annual Breast Cancer Tea on Sunday, September 24, 2017 at the Avalon Manor….watch for details.
