Bountiful Home and Susan G. Komen Maryland are joining forces for the fifth year in a row to host a community event that raises awareness about breast cancer and helps fund the organization’s ongoing battle to eradicate it. On Friday, October 11th from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m., Bountiful will host The Pink Party at its new location at “The Gateway to Easton,”at the corner of U.S. Route 50 and Goldsborough Street. The event is free and open to all.
Jamie Merida, owner of Bountiful Home, said, “This event is so important to us because many of our customers, colleagues, and friends have been affected by breast cancer. The Pink Party honors their courage and helps raise funds to support survivors and those currently in the fight.” Merida said Bountiful Home will donate 20% of all retail sales during the event to Susan G. Komen Maryland to support local grant, educational, and survivorship programs.
The event will also feature a raffle with prizes donated by local businesses and favorite Bountiful Home vendors. Pink-themed cocktails will be served, and Chef Steve Konopelski of Turnbridge Talbot, which is located within the Bountiful building, will provide light snacks.
Lori Yates, Eastern Shore Manager for Susan G. Komen Maryland, said, “We look forward to this event every year and are grateful to Bountiful Home for their partnership. The statistics on breast cancer are staggering. In 2019, more than 5,000 new cases of breast cancer will be reported in Maryland alone. Although most breast cancer incidence occurs in women, some of those individuals will be men and Komen Maryland includes them in its community grant programs as well. Everyone in the community can count on The Pink Party not only for a great evening, but also as an opportunity to learn about the most current breast health research and information while supporting the work of Komen Maryland.”
Susan G. Komen Maryland provides grant funding to organizations that offer breast health services throughout the state. In 2019, $569,000 was distributed to twelve programs across Maryland, with four of those programs serving and based on the Eastern Shore. Susan G. Komen has been a global leader in the fight against breast cancer for more than 35 years. During those three and a half decades, tremendous progress has been made in providing access to screening and reducing death rates. Despite that progress, the actual number of deaths has remained relatively unchanged. To change that reality, the organization set a Bold Goal in 2016 to reduce the nation’s breast cancer deaths by 50% in ten years.
