This year, Oshkosh Express Laundry Center was the leading contributor to the cause, according to Foundation Coordinator Molly Yatso-Butz, Aurora Health Care Foundation, North Region.
“Money raised through Pink Possible will support breast cancer patients by purchasing massage therapy sessions and wigs during their breast cancer journey,” she said.
Oshkosh Express Laundry Center donated the proceeds of Pink Possible shopping bags and 5 percent of October sales to the cause, according to Manager Karen Cooley.
“We are pleased to once again be involved in raising money for Pink Possible,” Cooley said. “In our three years of involvement, we’ve raised more than $6,000. We hope once again that our contribution will positively impact the lives of many in the Fox Valley area. We love being involved in and partnering with local organizations. Community matters to us, and we are glad to be part of this community.”
Last year, Pink Possible raised $65,000 throughout Wisconsin to support breast cancer patient education, prevention, patient experience, research and survivorship programming.
In the Oshkosh and Fond du Lac areas, a variety of businesses participated in Pink Possible, raising more than $5,500.
