PINK VAIL ASTOUNDS In 2018 and Prepares for 2019
Pink Vail 2018 astounded last year! Pink Vail had one of the most successful years of Fundraising in their event’s history. Wow! A goal of $800,000 for Shaw Cancer Center’s Spirit of Survival program was exceeded by $120,000 which benefits ALL of their patients by providing complimentary nutrition consultation, fitness classes, emotional counseling, wellness programs and much more. What a gift.
This year they have set the bar at $900,000 so it is time to begin fundraising!
