About Us

Unwavering Community Spirit

The Pink Ribbon Society is a beacon of hope and support in Northwest Indiana, dedicated to promoting breast cancer awareness and aid. Founded in 2001 by Ann Peters, a breast cancer survivor, we are committed to keeping all funds raised within our local communities of Lake, Porter, Jasper, and Newton Counties.

Our mission is to directly support individuals and other local organizations in the fight against breast cancer. From funding mammograms and ultrasounds to providing wigs and compression sleeves, we’ve proudly returned over $750,000 to our community, embodying the spirit of local support and care, and also in an effort to provide financial support to women in treatment.
