Project Give Good

Seymour Pink recognized in Starbucks’s Project Give Good Throughout December, Starbucks is giving out $1 Million in Starbucks gift cards. Unexpected acts, large or small, can be so meaningful that even years later, they’ll be warmly remembered. “The inspiration behind Project Give Good is simple, we want to brighten the holidays and delight our customers,” said Kris Engskov, executive vice president of U.S. Retail for Starbucks. “The holidays are here and good is in the air. We hope Project Give Good will continue all the good in our communities and keep it going and growing, because good is contagious and giving is too.” Seymour Pink was nominated by Cassandra Dessureau-O’Hara, the manager of Starbucks of Seymour. “I believe this organization deserves the recognition because there are far too many men and women getting the breast cancer diagnosis and during their time of need, Seymour Pink is there to bring them a little light in the face of terrible darkness.”  Cassandra presented Mary Deming, Seymour Pink founder and President with 25 gift cards worth $20 each. In 2017, Seymour Pink has donated $25,000 to Smilow Cancer Center to helping women currently receiving chemotherapy to use the Scalp Cooling Modality minimizing hair loss. They have approved 110 applications for financial assistance to people undergoing treatment, so that they can focus on their fight and not their bills. The 6th Annual Pounding the Pavement for Pink 5k drew an astonishing 2600 participants and raised over $100,000 for their mission. Seymour Pink was given the honor in 2017 of being a charity partner at the Marine Corps Marathon in Washington, DC. This was...

Sometimes I have to pinch myself

Sometimes I have to pinch myself and ask is this real? The support that you give, that this community gives, (and by community I mean the community of hope, the community of giving) overwhelms me! So many organizations, so many individuals support us in the fight against breast cancer. Just recently Seymour United Methodist Church had a fundraiser and donated profits to us. We received a check for $600 from them! Is that not amazing! I just recently found out that Chase School in Waterbury Ct. is planning to have a Pink day and has chosen Seymour Pink as the recipient of the monies they raise! Options Hair salon in Shelton Connecticut is doing a fundraiser for us…they are doing pink extensions or pink died streaks for the month of October and the monies raised will come to us! The high school sport teams; boys soccer, girls softball, girls swim, girls volleyball and Seymour Pop Warner continue to support us each year by having Pink games for us. These are just a few of the businesses, organizations and individuals who believe in the fight and who continue to support us. Please know that with your support, with your encouragement with your energies, Seymour Pink continues to fund research, fund education and financially assist those victimized by the breast cancer diagnosis. Perhaps you saw on Facebook just recently we were able to donate $25,000 to Smilow for a program of treatment that will help women combat hair loss during chemo therapy treatments! At this past September board meeting. we voted to grant $14,000 in financial assistance to those applying during...

More Support to Smilow Cancer Center

Yesterday, we had an incredible start to our day! We met with many of the breast cancer wellness staff at Smilow to present them with a $25,000 check from PINK to support a new program they will be providing for breast cancer patients called Scalp Cooling System, which at this point is NOT covered by insurance… *** This is a note I received this morning from Alison Marcinek Senior Development Officer: “Many, many thanks, once again, for coming in to Smilow to gather with our Breast Center and patient care staff to deliver your generous check for the new Scalp Cooling Program support. We are always so delighted to see you all, there is such great spirit and warmth within your group and it is very infectious.” To this COMMUNITY who has supported event after event, day after day…this is what your kindness and generosity have allowed us to do in the FIGHT against breast...
