Can I make a donation if I can't come to the event?
You may make a donation by mail by using the addressed response card enclosed in your invitation. You can also click the "Contact Us" tab to the left and we can arrange your donation or attendance. A donation in any denomination is accepted and greatly appreciated.
You may also choose to donate an item to be raffled at the event, including homemade gift baskets, store bought items, or gift cards.
How is the money raised distributed?
Every year we split our funds into two areas:
1. A scholarship awarded to North Rockland High School senior(s) who display courage and community mindedness
2. A worthy breast cancer related cause. We NEVER donate to a general fund. While that is an important part of the fight against breast cancer, our attendees come because of their personal connection with Ginny, so we find projects that make a distinct and immediate difference.
Example of this are funding televisions for patients rooms at the Bone Marrow Transplant Unit at North Shore Hospital. We have also donated wigs, turbans, and scarves to chemotherapy patients who could not afford to buy it themselves, and we have funded a mobile scanning unit that gave no cost mammograms to women. Most recently, we provided a weeklong retreat to a family fighting cancer through Little Pink Houses of Hope.
Who receives the scholarship?
One or more seniors attending North Rockland High School will receive the award. These students have completed numerous community service activities and in many cases have had their lives touched by cancer.
Is there an open bar?
There will be an open bar for the entire 4 hour event. Top shelf liquor, wine, bottled beer, and soda are available.
What is the proper attire?
Dress casual is fine, but feel free to come a little gussied up if you please.
What is the menu?
There is a full buffet and dessert and coffee will also be served.
What prizes will be raffled?
Click the Raffle Prizes tab to the left for a full listing that will be updated up until the day of the event. In past years we have raffled off items including: a 42 inch TV, tickets to pro sporting events, a $500 Apple gift card, and a PSP. We have also raffled spa gift certificates, baskets of cheer, and various other gift baskets, often donated by friends and family.
