After a smashing success last year, Meadows Farms will once again be hosting PINK DAYS, a fundraiser for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF). BCRF is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) that is the only breast cancer organization to be awarded an “A+” by CharityWatch. Pink Day 2014 will be held over the Columbus Day weekend- October 11-13, 2014.
In 2013 Meadows Farms raised over $23,000, and have a goal this year of $30,000. Since they began hosting Pink Days they have raised over $50,000 for the BCRF. “We are extremely excited to be hosting our third annual Pink Days. It’s a great way for us to support an instrumental organization in the fight against breast cancer, and an exciting way to get the community involved!” says Bobby Lewis, Vice President at Meadows Farms.
Over the Columbus Day weekend, Meadows Farms Nurseries will be rockin’ the pink t-shirts and bandanas, and invites the public to do the same, setting the tone for some serious fundraising. Highlights will include raffles, silent auctions, local vendors, music, community organizations & local fire departments, food vendors, and other fun and festive events! Meadows Farms will also offer a special discount for customers making a donation at the time of purchase on Saturday October 11. For more information contact your local Meadows Farms Nursery.
An exciting new event this year features select brave employees fundraising for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation by asking sponsors to champion them as they jump out of an airplane on Saturday October 4th at the Warrenton Airpark! All funds raised go directly to the BCRF.
