OSHKOSH EXPRESS LAUNDRY CENTER DONATES MORE THAN $2,000 TO PINK POSSIBLE BREAST HEALTH FUND
November 2017 — Oshkosh Express Laundry Center recently presented a $2,019 check to Aurora Health Care Foundation’s Oshkosh Pink Possible (Pink Possible) Breast Health Fund. Pink Possible, held throughout October each year, engages local businesses to raise money for Aurora Cancer Care breast cancer patients and their families.
For the second consecutive year, the laundry donated 5 percent of October sales to Pink Possible. Additionally, Oshkosh Express Laundry Center hosted a brat fry and sold “Wash Reds with Whites” t-shirts to help fund free laundry services. “We donated 29 laundry cards, which will be distributed to area cancer patients,” said Assistant Manager Rebekah Peterson. Each card, valued at more than $18, is redeemable for full-service wash/dry/fold for up to 20 pounds of laundry.
“The benefits of giving go far beyond the giver or receiver,” said Aurora Health Care Foundation Development Coordinator Molly Butz. “It brings people together by making them aware of the struggles that exist in the community. Express Laundry Center provided considerable financial support to help us offer services to cancer patients going through treatment.”
“In 2017, the American Cancer Society expects more than 250,000 new cases of invasive breast cancer to be diagnosed in women,” added Peterson. “We wanted to help make a difference in the lives of these cancer patients by participating in Pink Possible.”
Last year, Pink Possible raised $64,000 throughout Wisconsin to support breast cancer patient education, prevention, patient experience, research and survivorship programming.
In the Oshkosh and Fond du Lac areas, many businesses participated in Pink Possible, including Oshkosh Express Laundry Center. “We’d like to thank Steinert Printing Company for printing our posters and for participation in our brat fry; Red’s Pizza for their $25 gift card donation and participation in our brat fry; and Pick ’n Save for giving us a discount on food,” added Peterson.
Put to good use, Pink Possible will help fund breast cancer patient services such as massage therapy, yoga, aromatherapy, wigs and prosthetics.
