BigWigs Raise $19,790.92! 

Our inaugural BigWigs campaign was a huge success! In six short weeks our eight BigWigs raised $19,790.92. The competition was close, but Aura Sarmiento of TaxStar Services came out victorious as the BigWigs’ top fundraiser. With the help of her family, friends, and TaxStar clients, Aura raised $3,318. All of the BigWigs did a phenomenal job, and we could not be more thankful for their dedication to this fundraising campaign.

PROJECT ONE MILLION  

Eighty million people are expected to try yoga for the first time this year. Manduka Yoga and Susan G. Komen® know something about statistics. With 40,000 women expected to die this year alone in the U.S. of breast cancer, Komen and Manduka want to help change that statistic through the power of yoga. Join Project: OM this Mother’s Day weekend and help us reach our Bold Goal of reducing the current number of breast cancer deaths by 50 percent in the U.S. by 2026. Go to projectOM.com to learn how you can get involved and help us change the lives of women and men facing a diagnosis.

VOLUNTEER SPOTLIGHT

The Volunteer Spotlight is a unique honor given to volunteers who go above and beyond the call of duty to help the Affiliate fulfill its mission. For the month of April we spotlight Kathy Binkowski. Kathy is quick to help us with office work, whether as complicated as data entry and analysis, or as simple as tying bows and assembling give aways. We thank Kathy for her time and for being More Than Pink™. Kathy was asked about her experience as a volunteer with the Affiliate, and you can read what she had to say here
