ON Sunday October 18, with the support and sponsorship of Card Land Overseas, Positively Pink and Blue held a poignant balloon release ‘in memory and in support of those who have lost or are fighting a battle against cancer’.
The event was a huge success, well supported and well attended. The rain held off and the balloons took flight with the right wind direction. The charity sold in excess of 300 balloons at €5 each and raised approximately €1,500 which will be presented to the charity at the Pink & Blue Ball on October 22 by the owner of Card Land Overseas, Jim McAllister.
Each balloon will be represented on the ‘Thinking of You Page’ on the charities’ websites (http://positively-pink.com/) an opportunity to write a few words, to reflect, to express or encourage the fight against the Big C, and in line with the National Balloon Association guideline this was an environmentally-friendly event and will not have an impact on animals.
All monies raised from this event will go straight towards funding the 2016 screening programmes.
Euro Weekly News was proud to be the media sponsor of this event.
