Neighborhood Lemonade Stand

Encourage your kids to set up shop outside the house and entice neighbors outside with a refreshing glass of lemonade. It’s a great opportunity to meet new friends and spread the message of breast cancer awareness.

Get your Golf On!

Want to take your passion outdoors? The ladies of The Kahkwa Club 18-Hole Women’s League “tee’d” up to host a golf tournament/educational luncheon to help raise $1,050 for the fight against breast cancer. These ladies pinked out everything from their shirts to the club house, and even the laces on their shoes!

Silly Pink Days

In October 2009, White Center Community Service Office in Seattle celebrated Passionately Pink® all month long. They collected donations for Susan G. Komen® to help end breast cancer forever. Employees also dressed in pink all five Thursdays in October, including two “Silly Pink” days that the staff members took quite literally!

Santa Monica Passion for Pink

One day five ladies were discussing love, life and the world. Next thing you know they were planning and organizing a fun social event where all proceeds went to Passionately Pink. With the help of 15 bachelors, all willing to be auctioned off in the name of breast cancer awareness, these ladies pulled together with their friends and had a fabulous Passionately Pink night, proving that men like to get involved too!

Wearing Pink is Hot!

The Corpus Christi Fire Fighters Local 936 turned up the heat on breast cancer and raised over $7,000 during their Passionately Pink event. These brave men and women had a change of uniform with pink event t-shirts. They also hosted a community walk, and sweetened up the day with a custom Passionately Pink ribbon cake.

Make the most of the winter weather with a Pink Snowlady Challenge! Transform a snowy construction with pink floral paint and challenge your community, your colleagues, your friends, family and neighbors to raise funds before the snowlady melts! The pictured snowlady lasted a week before she melted and helped raise over $10,000.

Pink Profile: Line Dancing For Donations

 Soul/Urban Dancing (with the help of a few friends) showed support for breast cancer awareness through their love and passion for Soul/R&B/Urban line dancing.  According to team captain Donna Burns, the passion behind this team is all about awareness: “Line Dancing is our means for bringing family, friends and community together to help build energy levels with fitness, fun and self-gratification.” Through their community event, they danced their way to over $2,000!
