CHI Health Named Presenting Sponsor of Project Pink’d EXPOSED: It’s Personal 10th Annual Benefit
CHI Health Named Presenting Sponsor of Project Pink’d EXPOSED: It’s Personal 10th Annual Benefit

When Project Pink’d, Inc. was founded in 2010 by Cynthia Sturgeon, she had a vision to create a local organization that filled the gaps and provided support for breast cancer survivors after a diagnosis. Exposing the real issues survivors faced after a diagnosis and using her personal experiences to help others more easily navigate through the challenges, Cynthia’s vision became a reality. Thousands of survivors’ lives have been impacted by the compassionate survivorship programming and local network of support Project Pink’d provides each day.

For the second year in a row, Project Pink’d is proud to announce CHI Health as the Presenting Sponsor for their upcoming EXPOSED Annual Benefit.

“Serving local women with breast cancer, continually improving their care and dedicating our time and resources to them is a top priority for CHI Health. Having breast cancer is not a single event -- it’s a journey that can be scary and incredibly complex. That’s why the experience those women have is immensely important to us. Breast Cancer touches 1 in 8 women. It’s vitally important that CHI Health offers them an experience that is supportive, comforting, positive and reassuring so that they may thrive outside their diagnosis and create a meaningful future, “ said Kathy Bressler, CHI Health Senior Vice President, Chief Operating Officer.

The Project Pink'd EXPOSED: It’s Personal 10th Annual Benefit, will be held at the Embassy Suites La Vista on Friday, August 16. This event is SOLD OUT.

A record 900 supporters will come together to Paint the Town Pink'd on August 16. Making their brushstrokes count, event guests will celebrate and honor those diagnosed with breast cancer at our EXPOSED: It's Personal Annual Benefit. Guests will enjoy signature Pink’d martinis & hors d’oeuvres, silent & live auction, Gifts of Hope, inspiring Survivor Celebration and be amongst the first to witness the unveil of thriving masterpieces. Embracing their What’s Raised Here Stays Here philosophy, all proceeds from the evening will directly benefit survivors in NE and Western IA.

"We welcome CHI Health's continued role and increased support for our mission as Presenting Sponsor for our annual fund-raising event. It is vital to our success in helping survivors that leaders in our community, like CHI Health, validate our efforts through their support. We will continue providing services to survivors in our community so CHI Health and all our sponsors, supporters and volunteers are proud of what we accomplish together,” said Cynthia Sturgeon, Project Pink’d Founder and President.
