Pretty In Pink Raises $13,500


If you happened to be walking along our beautiful bay last Thursday night, you may have noticed a sea of pink, the sound of music, feather boas, flowers, and about 150 women getting ready to board the duc d’Orleans! June 22nd marked the 8th annual Pretty in Pink women’s only cruise in support of the Canadian Cancer Society’s Wheels of Hope program.

The committee is pleased to announce that a total of $13,500 was raised this year to help local cancer patients undergoing treatment outside of Sarnia. Committee Chair Jennifer Crawford says “We are beyond thrilled with this year’s fundraising results and feel very fortunate to be living in such a giving community”. The total of the funds raised came from a combination of local business sponsorships, ticket sales, and on-board raffles.

Plans are already underway for next year’s event and the date will be announced soon. Details can be found on the event’s Facebook page “Pretty in Pink Sarnia”.
