Support Breast Cancer Patients in the Brainerd Lakes Area!
6th Annual Pink Tie Party – October 22
Join us to celebrate the 6th Annual Pink Tie Party to support Breast Cancer patients in the Brainerd Lakes Area from 6:00-9:00 pm on Thursday, October 22 at The Woods Event Center (formerly Timbermist), 19624 County Road 3, Brainerd. The Pink Tie Party will feature hors d’oeuvres, cocktails, dessert samples, music, silent auction, jewelry raffle, and engaging activities.
The Pink Tie Party presented by Spectrum Reach offers a special occasion to socialize with the members of your community while supporting an important cause. All proceeds benefit breast cancer patients through the St. Joseph’s Foundation at the Essentia Health Cancer Center and The Pink Ribbon Cupboard. Last year the Pink Tie Party raised over $8,000 and we hope to surpass that amount at this year’s event. In addition to the silent auction, we will feature a reverse raffle of a diamond pendant necklace donated by Riddle’s Jewelry.
The funds are used to support patients who are undergoing active treatment for breast cancer through continued improvements in care and non-medical assistance. The St. Joseph’s Foundation and Pink Ribbon Cupboard distributed to patients the following with last year’s funds:
- Gas cards
- Wigs for breast cancer patients
- Rent for a month to lessen the stress on a family
- Payment of mortgage for a month to prevent home foreclosure
- Payment of auto insurance to keep this transportation resource available to the family
- Payment of utilities to keep the lights on
- Grocery gift cards for help with family grocery expenses
“It’s one way that as a community, we can collaborate to extend our outreach to improve the life of cancer survivors and their families in the Brainerd Lakes Area,” said Marian Foehrenbacher, Cancer Center manager at Essentia Health-St. Joseph’s Medical Center. “Having resources for helping to treat the entire patient, not just physically, spiritually, and emotionally through compassionate care by Essentia Health staff, but practically by helping to meet the needs patients have beyond the disease.”
David Jeremiason, Director of St. Joseph’s Foundation, comments, “We are so excited and appreciative to Spectrum Reach, The Woods Event Center, Riddle’s Jewelry and all the individuals and businesses that are supporting this event. We hope both men and women will attend and help us raise money to support breast cancer patients and their families through The Pink Ribbon Cupboard. All money raised will stay local—to help the men and women in the community undergoing breast cancer treatment.”
