Oshkosh Express Laundry Center to host brat fry for Pink Possible, Oct. 18.
Oshkosh Express Laundry Center will host a brat fry — from 11 a.m.-2 p.m., Wednesday, Oct. 18 — to benefit cancer patients through Aurora Health Care Foundation’s Oshkosh Pink Possible (Pink Possible) Breast Health Fund. The Pink Possible campaign, held throughout October each year, engages local businesses to raise money for Aurora Cancer Care breast cancer patients and their families.
Oshkosh Express Laundry Center, which raised $1,860 for the cause in 2016, will again donate 5 percent of October sales in 2017. Brat fry proceeds will specifically fund free laundry service cards for area cancer patients, according to Manager Karen Cooley. “The laundry cards will be distributed to cancer patients,” she said. “Each card is redeemable for full-service wash/dry/fold for up to 20 pounds of laundry.”
To complement the campaign, Oshkosh Express Laundry Center is selling “Wash Reds with Whites” t-shirts and launching social media contests.
“We are thrilled to be part of such a fantastic campaign and grateful to our customers for their support and business,” said Cooley.
Last year, Pink Possible raised $53,000 throughout Wisconsin to support breast cancer patient education, prevention, patient experience, research and survivorship programming.
