Annual event to support the Bonnie's Bus
The annual Pink Party benefits Bonnie’s Bus, which has provided more than 20,000 mammograms to West Virginia women since 2009, many of whom are uninsured and unable to cover the cost of a mammogram otherwise. 110 women and counting have been diagnosed with breast cancer following a screening on the Bus. Although the world has changed in 2020, Bonnie's Bus keeps rolling and the need for its services continues to grow. This year, out of an abundance of caution, the decision has been made to host The Pink Party virtually. Fellow supporters and friends of the WVU Cancer Institute can safely support Bonnie's Bus and the women of West Virginia remotely, all while enjoying a fully interactive experience including special presentations, contests, and auction.
Date: Monday, September 14, 2020
Time: 7:00 p.m.
Location: Online via Zoom
The $100 ticket price of 2019 will be preserved in 2020 in order to ensure funding for the Bus is maintained, even during the pandemic. An email will be sent to each registrant to include a Zoom link through which the LIVE party can be viewed Sept. 14. Bonuses include:
Each registrant will receive via postal mail a Pink Party face mask party favor. For every mask sent, another will be donated to the Cancer Institute for patient use.
Each registrant will also be entered to win a new MacBook Air during a special Pink Party drawing!
Registrants and all those interested will be sent digital collateral which can be used to join us in personally fundraising for Bonnie’s Bus leading up to the Party.
Registrants will have access to a silent auction in the days leading up to the Party. The auction will close at 11 p.m. the night of the Party. More details regarding the auction are forthcoming.
Sponsorships are available at varying levels. Details can be found on the registration page. Simply visit the registration page and select “I would like to sponsor the party” from the first drop-down menu.
