The New Hanover Regional Medical Center Foundation has postponed the upcoming 21st annual Pink Ribbon Project Luncheon and Cocktail Party. This decision was made due to circumstances surrounding the recent impacts of Hurricane Florence on the southeastern region of North Carolina. We understand many people have been affected by this storm and are devoting their time and efforts to recovery and assisting others in need.
The events have been rescheduled for March 2019. Below are the details pertaining to the new dates, locations and times.
Pink Ribbon Project Luncheon
When: March 14, 2019
Where: Wilmington Convention Center
Time: 11 a.m. until 1 p.m.
Pink Ribbon Project Cocktail Party & Celebration
When: March 22, 2019
Where: Cape Fear Country Club
Time: 7-11 p.m.
The postponement of the events does not interfere with the Pink Ribbon Project’s ongoing efforts to support women and their fight against breast cancer.
“The Pink Ribbon Project offers year-round support, providing women who need access to compassionate care,” said NHRMC Foundation Executive Director and Vice President of Development Schorr Davis.” The annual luncheon and cocktail party are community celebrations and fundraising opportunities for these efforts. This postponement will in no way deter us from continuing to deliver care to those in need.”
The Pink Ribbon Project provides patients in southeastern North Carolina access to 3D mammography screenings, comfort to those undergoing cancer treatment and community awareness of breast cancer and the benefits of early diagnosis and screenings. The Pink Ribbon Project funds more than 1,000 screening and diagnostic breast procedures each year for eligible patients.
