Project Pink was established by Leigh & Margie in 2005 to raise monies for the National Breast Cancer Foundation through their Pink Ribbon Breakfast initiative to fund breast cancer research. The initial aim of Project Pink was to gather a group of friends and family to show support for a dear friend battling breast cancer at that time. That year, Project Pink raised $700 at the Pink Breakfast.
Each year since, Project Pink has hosted a Prink Breakfast to raise monies for breast cancer research and awareness, totalling $75,000+ with the generous support of family, friends and the local community.
In 2010, Project Pink hosted another fundraising event to raise monies for a lovely lady within our community who was in the last stage of breast cancer, which put a massive strain on her family’s finances. With the help of family, friends and the local Wilston community, Project Pink was able to raise $3000 to fund house cleaning, respite care and finally, hospice care.
Project Pink is 100% administered by volunteers and all our supplies/materials are generously donated by friends, family and the local business community, so that every cent raised goes directly to NBCF or a community member in need. Our major commercial supporters include:
