Pink Party a Raging Success

Emma Garrard/Sierra Sun

The Fourth Annual Pink Party was another rowdy, fundraising success. Held at the Bar of America on Oct. 17, sponsored by the Tahoe LUNA Chix, the event raised $21,000 with more than 250 folks in attendance.

Half the monies raised will be directly donated to The Breast Cancer Fund. The other half will stay here in the community and will again be funding local programs through its annual grant cycle, which begins in June. The Tahoe LUNA Foundation Board of Directors will review all grant proposals to decide where the money is granted. If Tahoe Forest Hospital and Reno Cancer Foundation submit another grant application this year, they will be considered for renewal. Tahoe LUNA Chix encourages all cancer organizations to apply.

The team is excited about another successful year and is already planning for the Fifth Annual Pink Party. The organization expresses thanks to all 2008 sponsors that donated. They are the ones who make it a success.
