Black River church to host benefit


By Kristy D. Carter - [email protected]



In an effort to help breast cancer patients, Black River Presbyterian Church in Ivanhoe will be holding a pig picking and yard sale Saturday, May 21. All proceeds from the event will be donated to the Pretty in Pink Foundation.

The Pretty In Pink Foundation’s mission is to provide financial assistance to uninsured and underinsured breast cancer patients with quality, life-saving medical treatment regardless of their ability to pay. The foundation makes this happen with financial commitments through sponsorships, fundraising, donations and pledge drives that support our Champions locally and throughout North Carolina.

The ultimate vision of Pretty In Pink Foundation is to eliminate financial barriers and to provide financial resources to any breast cancer patient with true financial needs for treatment and surgery. The first goal is to expand the foundation’s efforts to all counties in North Carolina.
