Newsflash: Pink Sock Monkeys Help Raise Funds to Fight Breast Cancer
Remember the latest pair of pink sock monkeys I made?
I made them at the request of Cyndy, a family member who spends winters in Texas. Each year she organizes a golf outing with a luncheon and raffle to raise funds for local breast cancer organizations. The sock monkeys were among several items raffled at this year’s event.
I’m happy to say Cyndy’s efforts raised another $1,000 for Texas-based breast cancer programs, with a portion of the funds going to providing free mammograms for local women.
Turns out both monkeys will soon be relocating to Canada with their new families. I’m sure these cheeky monkeys will continue their crusade against cancer for many years to come.
Congratulations on a job well done, Cyndy!
