Help raise awareness about early detection and place a pink chair at your business!

About The Empty Pink Chair Project

Unfortunately, 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. Early detection and treatment increases the odds of beating cancer.

The goal of the Empty Pink Chair Project is to raise money for the Pretty in Pink Foundation by selling sponsorships for a hand painted pink chair to be placed in sponsors business. The chair represents someone that has lost their life to breast cancer. The chair is also to serve as a gentle reminder that getting your annual mammogram and detecting cancer as early as possible is the key first step to beating cancer.

All the money raised will go to the Pretty in Pink Foundation, which is an amazing local charity that provides uninsured and under-insured breast cancer patients in North Carolina with financial assistance for quality, life-saving medical treatment. Sponsorship is a minimum donation of $100 (more is always appreciated :)).

For the sponsorship of a chair: a beautiful hand painted pink chair will be placed at the sponsors business with a plaque stating the significance of the chair for the month of October. Each sponsor will be featured on ours as well as the Pretty in Pink Foundation's social media and website. When we place the chair we will take a picture at the sponsors place of business and include picture in all posts. Sponsors will also be listed in the Pitt County Women's Journal in October.

When breast cancer is present...
and health insurance is not.

Pretty In Pink Foundation provides the financial support for medical treatments to individuals who qualify based on household and income guidelines. To help extend our impact, Pretty In Pink Foundation partners with medical professionals across North Carolina who provide in-kind and reduced fee services to our breast cancer champions.
