Evening In Pink

Hello Sisters!

I just wanted to make sure that you all were invited to attend the 2008 Evening In Pink @ 6:30 PM at the Show Barn at Thanksgiving Point. It's a HUGE breast cancer awareness event sponsored by For Every Body. It is going to be a wonderful event and the best part is that it's FREE!!! Kevin Sharp will be performing and speaking! They are giving away gift bags to the first 100 people in attendance so show up early. I'm not sure what's going to be in the bags - but knowing these people it's going to be good! There will also be a Silent Auction and Tributes to Breast Cancer Heroes.

You can learn more by visiting www.ithinkpink.org

I hope you can all make it!

:) Ginger

P.S. I'm working on putting together a phone directory for the group - so if you would be willing to send me a picture of yourself/family in a jpg file to add to the directory I'd sure appreciate it!

Also - Don't forget to watch for upcoming announcements about the 2nd Annual Celebration of Life Dinner and Social coming up later this fall. There will be giveaways this year and it will be fun to get to know the newest memebers of the group!
