HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) — The Pennsylvania Breast Cancer Coalition is marking a milestone.
It is the 30th anniversary of its annual conference. The celebration kicked off on Monday night with a pink party at the Harrisburg Hilton.
The Pink Party honors volunteers, grassroots partners, advocates, and community leaders who support the coalition’s mission.
“It is incredibly special, there’s so much pink, there’s so much passion, there’s so much hope here at the conference every year,” Natalie Kopp said.
This year MidPenn Bank donated $100,000 for the coalition’s programs, services, and research grants.
“It’s always great to come out here, and see everyone dressed in pink and look at all the fun and excitement that they have celebrating a really tremendous organization that does so much for so many people,” said MidPenn Bank CEO Rory Ritrievi.
The coalition also honored the Colonial Women’s Golf Committee for raising $124,000 through their fundraiser Rally Fore The Cure in support of the coalition programs, services, and research grants.
