How to Plan a Pink Ribbon Event
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month! Do your part to spread awareness and raise money to find a cure with a fundraiser or pink ribbon event. Some great ideas for fundraising events are breast cancer walks and traditional dinner banquets. If you are planning a breast cancer awareness event, try to partner with companies who are doing their part to support breast cancer awareness as well. At Century Novelty we are doing our part to support finding a cure for breast cancer. Century Novelty donates 5% of all breast cancer awareness sales to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
For Your Breast Cancer Awareness Walk:
A breast cancer awareness walk is very straightforward; just have your participants raise pledge support from their friends and family for every mile they walk. Motivate and reward your participants by having a grand prize for the participant who has the most sponsors.
It’s also nice to have a small gift to give to all of your participants. Some simple ideas that are perfect for the walk are Pink Ribbon Visors, Pink Ribbon Terrycloth Wristbands, and Breast Cancer Awareness Bottles. Give these gifts out at the beginning of the walk so that the participants can use them while they walk.
Another great idea for fundraising at a breast cancer awareness walk is to set up a booth and sell pink ribbon merchandise. You can sell Pink Ribbon Baseball Caps, Jumbo Breast Cancer Awareness Rubber Bracelets, and Pink Ribbon Reusable Bags at booths along the walk route. Make sure to set up a booth at the start and end where there will be family and friends cheering the participants on. All the profits made from the sale of pink ribbon products at a booth like this can be an additional donation to the breast cancer awareness organization you are supporting.
Plan a Dinner Banquet:
A great breast cancer awareness fundraiser is a traditional dinner banquet. You provide dinner and entertainment for all of your guests, and ask that all those who enjoy themselves to please give a donation to the breast cancer awareness foundation of your choice. Your job as the dinner organizer will be to decorate the room with pink ribbon tableware. You can use pink ribbon Breast Cancer Awareness Balloons, Pink Ribbon Divided Plates and Pink Ribbon Plastic Table Covers to remind your guests of the cause.
You can also put together a small gift bag for your guests filled with pink ribbon merchandise. A small Pink Ribbon Organza Bag filled with Rhinestone Pink Ribbon Charms, Breast Cancer Pink Ribbon Key Chains, Pink Ribbon Message Pens and more. These simple pink ribbon gift items will let your guests know that you appreciate their attendance and support. Plus these pink ribbon products will continue to spread breast cancer awareness to all they come in contact with.
