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!

  1. Just in case you can’t see this screen capture from my FB page:

    Thanks to lil’ sis, Paula Hendrickson, and Cyndy Lammert for turning their passions into profits which helped raise money for women to receive mammograms and hopefully save lives. A heartfelt thanks to the proud Canadian owners of some fabulously lovely pink sock monkeys. Well done all!

  2. Cyndy did the hard part!

    She also had flags in memory of Mom and in honor of you as a 14-year (and counting!) survivor. How sweet is that?
