The Pink Passions Auction Benefiting Susan G. Komen for the Cure
An exciting first happened today! We launched the inaugural “Pink Passions Auction” to honor the promise our founder and CEO, Ambassador Nancy G. Brinker, made to her dying sister, Susan G. Komen, that she would do everything she could to end breast cancer forever. The auction – powered by charitybuzz – is comprised of designer fashions, accessories and home décor items, as well as exclusive beauty treatments, experiences and extravagant trips. Top fashion and accessories brands across the world have come together to donate exclusive pink items to raise funds. Participating brands include: Oscar de la Renta, Hermes, Manolo Blahnik, Valentino, Michael Kors, Badgley Mischka, Tiffany & Co, Bulgari, Kara Ross, Judith Ripka, St. John, Tory Burch, Guiseppi Zanotti, Valentino, Versace and Jimmy Choo.
The support of the fashion community and the unique offerings of the Pink Passions Auction will help us raise the critical dollars we need to advance the science and fund community-level programs that provide answers and assistance to those touched by breast cancer.
Bidding is open through March 23, 2011 at charitybuzz.com/perfectpink.
About the author
Nancy G. Brinker promised her dying sister, Susan G. Komen, she would do everything in her power to end breast cancer forever. In 1982, that promise became Susan G. Komen and launched the global breast cancer movement. Today, Komen is the world’s largest grassroots network of breast cancer survivors and activists fighting to save lives, empower people, ensure quality care for all and energize science to find the cures. Thanks to events like the Komen Race for the Cure®, we have invested more than $1.9 billion to fulfill our promise, becoming the largest source of nonprofit funds dedicated to the fight against breast cancer in the world.
