The Packet (Clarenville) - - EDITORIAL - CLARENVILLE, NL

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.
