The event starts at 11 a.m., and includes food, champagne, and a designer purse auction. The attire is pink. Julee Rauch serves on the fundraising committee for the Kosciusko County Cancer Care Fund.
“We are wearing pink but supporting all cancers,” she said.
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, an annual campaign to increase awareness of the disease.
This is the first year for this fundraiser. Rauch said she hopes the brunch will be an annual event.
So far, five designer purses will be auctioned off. Accessories such as wallets will also be available. Volunteers will also be modeling the purses and accessories, said Rauch.
Food includes a three-course lunch with salad, quiche, shrimp, pink sorbet and pink champaign.
All proceeds from this event will go directly to the Cancer Care Fund of Kosciusko County. The fund focuses its mission on reducing the challenges facing Kosciusko County cancer patients and their families by financially assisting them during their fight.
The cost of the brunch is $60. RSVP by Oct. 1. For more information about the fund and to register, visit www.cancercarefundkc.org/powerofpink.html.
