Pink Ribbon Luncheon

Published October 5, 2009 by Patty Brisben

For those of you who were watching football this past weekend, you probably noticed the pink gloves, sneakers, ball cap bills and the like – all in support of breast cancer awareness. It’s officially Breast Cancer Awareness Month and it’s SO important to get out and do your part for this important cause!

I kicked off the month at the Pink Ribbon Luncheon at the Duke Energy Center Thursday, October 1st, where Pure Romance was a sponsor. The Luncheon was preceded by a women’s health-themed panel which featured 7 local physician experts answering many of the common questions asked by their female patients.

Chris Collingsworth emceed the “Gems and Jeans” event which featured adorable country-themed table centerpieces (blackberry cameras don’t always do it justice!)

and headlined with a concert by two-time Grammy award winning country music singer and songwriter Lee Ann Womack. She did quite a few of her songs and some covers (my favorite cover was “Help Me Make It Through the Night”). And of course, the song she is most famous for and so many of us love, “I Hope You Dance”:

The Pink Ribbon Luncheon has raised more than 1.4 million dollars over the past 8 years for the Pink Ribbon programs!
