Embrace Your Sisters cancels Positively Pink fundraiser
The Embrace Your Sisters’ annual Positively Pink in Pittsford Walk scheduled for Sept. 27 is canceled. This would have been the 10th annual event.
“We are saddened to announce our second 2020 event cancellation due to COVID-19,” Vice President Megan Freida said. “Our fundraising efforts from the fashion show ‘Tea at Two’ and Positively Pink Walk bring in a majority of the annual donations to the organization, and assist many individuals and families struggling financially due to breast cancer. Please consider Embrace Your Sisters if you are looking for ways to give back to the community at this time.”
EYS provides emergency financial support for people with breast cancer. Its service area covers Allegany, Cayuga, Chemung, Livingston, Monroe, Ontario, Schuyler, Seneca, Steuben, Tioga, Tompkins, Wayne and Yates counties.
Funds are used in various ways for breast cancer patients, including utility bills, rent/mortgage, property taxes, transportation to and from treatment, hearing aids, car/insurance payment, medical bills, and lymphedema sleeves.
Donations can be made through PayPal, AmazonSmile and United Way of Greater Rochester. Call (585) 624-9690 or visit embraceyoursisters.org for information.
