Welcome to the 3rd Annual Paint For Pink - This is a cause very near and dear to me. We all somehow go through our daily lives and then something happens when we decide to jump on a personal cause. In this case, it's Breast Cancer. My grandma (my moms side) was diagnosed at age 70 and did not make it through. In May of 2017 - I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer - after my diagnosis, my mom thought she should get checked as well and unfortunately was told the same thing! I would have rather said we went through "photography" school or "baking bread" together but instead we encouraged each other daily through our surgery and chemo. I truly believe that if we both would have kept up with our yearly check ups we would not have had the need to go through surgery and chemo. Join us on October 25th for our 3rd Annual Paint For Pink at the West Kelowna Yacht Club

We painted "PINK" inspired quotes on wood pallet boards. We hosted paint parties at Summerhill Pyramid Winery, Ex Nihilo Vineyards, and Earls On Top - raising $1200 with the combined efforts of ticket sales from a round trip for 2 anywhere WESTJET flies. Congratulations Danielle Magnan.
Looking forward to next years' PAINT FOR PINK in October 2018
In May of 2016, I was diagnosed with Triple Negative Breast Cancer. Fortunately for me, during chemo, I felt pretty good so we were able to bring an idea to life- and that was to raise funds for Breast Cancer through Paint Parties - in October of 2016 PAINT FOR PINK was born.
We held paint parties at Earls On Top, Summerhill Pyramid Winery and
Ex-Nihilo Vineyards - raising money from each painter for the BC Cancer Foundation. This combined with a round trip for 2 from WESTJET (congratulations Denise Harris) we were able to raise $2060
