The Pink Fund Has Cancer Survivors Dancing For Breast Cancer Awareness

The Pink Fund Has Cancer Survivors Dancing For Breast Cancer Awareness

The Pink Fund

We’re halfway through Breast Cancer Awareness Month, but for The Pink Fundbreast cancer survivors, breast cancer awareness is a 24/7, all-year-long continuous mission.

The Pink Fund

This past weekend, four local New Jersey breast cancer survivors took to the dance floor to help raise funds for their neighbors currently undergoing treatment.  As part of The Pink Fund’s annual fundraiser, Dancing with the Survivors, local women teamed up with instructors at nearby Fred Astaire Dance studios, spent four months perfecting a ballroom dance, and then premiered it Saturday in front of families and friends. (the dancers had friends and family sponsor them and they raised nearly $20,000)
Dancing was bestselling author Sarah Price and Nicole Forini of Morristown, Penelope Lopez of Morris Plains and Michele Lombard of Denville.

Orchard Juice
In addition to funds raised at the event, Pink Fund sponsor, Natalie’s Orchid Island Juice Company, is contributing 40% of sales on its Orange Beet Juice for the month of October and raising awareness about The Pink Fund’s mission with pink-labelled bottles. Each bottle features a special inspirational quote from one of the Pink Fund Survivors and the juice company also created a signature cocktail called the Pink Drink for the event. 

For this year’s event, four local New Jersey breast cancer survivors, hailing from Morris Plains, Denville and Morristown, paired up with professional dancers from their local Fred Astaire Dance Studios. Each practiced a dance routine for four months, and this Saturday, the survivors performed their ballroom style dances in front of family and friends for the first time.
