11th Annual Tough Enough to Wear Pink Event Returns to Prescott
In 2018, an estimated 266,120 new cases of invasive breast cancer are expected to be diagnosed in women in the U.S., along with 63,960 new cases of non-invasive breast cancer according to breastcancer.org. And about 2,550 new cases of invasive breast cancer are expected to be diagnosed in men in 2018. All the more reason to help spread awareness of preventative health screenings and raise funding to help fight breast cancer. That’s why we’re excited that the 11th Annual Tough Enough to Wear Pink Event is returning to Prescott next month!
The roughest, toughest cowboys in the west will once again prove they’re “Tough Enough to Wear Pink” as the Prescott’s Frontier Days Rodeo hosts the 11th annual event to raise money to fight breast cancer at its performance on Monday, July 2nd.
Leading up to the annual “pink” rodeo performance will be the annual Tough Enough to Wear Pink fundraising dinner, which will take place on Saturday, June 2, at the Mackin Building on the Prescott Rodeo Grounds. The June 2nd dinner helps to raise money for the Tough Enough to Wear Pink campaign, as does the rodeo event, where you’ll find goodies such as pink ribbon hat stickers, jelly bracelets, bandanas, hats, T-shirts, tank tops, and jackets.
Since 2008, the local Tough Enough to Wear Pink campaign has donated over $40,000 to benefit area cancer patients. The money is used to buy gift cards for those in treatment so they can buy gas to get to appointments, prescriptions or food as well as help cover the costs of free mammograms for those in need.
For just $30 per person, attendees at the 5 p.m. dinner will receive a meal prepared by Chef Chris Fisher of Cast Iron Gourmet Catering. Local radio personality Ken Byers will host the evening, and it will include a silent and live auction with dozens of items. Tickets are available at the Rodeo Grounds office, 840 Rodeo Drive, Prescott, or call 928-445-3103. Visit worldsoldestrodeo.com for more event details.
