Treasure Chest group fundraises for annual breast cancer conference
‘Pink Sisters’ hold draw for gift basket
The Treasure Chest Ladies, also known as the “Pink Sisters,” have been fundraising again this year for the Canadian Cancer Society’s Annual Newfoundland and Labrador Breast Cancer Conference.
The women, who have all been affected by cancer, are from the region and will use the money to attend the annual conference in St. John’s next year. The conference helps women from the province who have been affected by breast cancer.
The Pink Sisters sold tickets around the area on a “Newfie Basket” of many items.
The winner of this year’s basket was Sarah Long of Port Rexton.
