MAKE A DIFFERENCE
As a nonprofit organization, we rely on the support and assistance from many types of volunteers to help us fulfill our mission of helping those affected by breast cancer. We have a range of opportunities for volunteers to help get the work done that is needed by our organization and, ultimately, needed help those we intend to serve.
Some examples of the types of volunteer opportunities available are listed below.
Ways to Volunteer
Member, Board of Directors
In two-year terms, Pink Lemonade Project board members provide organizational governance and oversight, in addition to serving on the fundraising, board development, and finance committees.
Members commit to attending 10 monthly board meetings, and an annual retreat, along with participating on at least one board committee.
Pink Lemonade Project looks for individuals to participate on our committees to add good thinking and help shape the direction of the programs and activities of the organization.
Currently, Pink Lemonade Project has committees that oversee work related to fundraising, programs, Pink Glow, the Girlfriends Run, and Communications. Committees meet once a month for approximately 2 hours.
A plethora of other volunteer opportunities arise every year from pro-bono help with event planning, fundraising, marketing, office administration, event support and data entry. These volunteer activities can be one-time help at an event, or a regularly scheduled time based on your interest and availability. This opportunity is open to both survivors of breast cancer or those who care about the cause.
Our signature fundraising event, Pink Glow is THE party with a purpose! The event includes a live auction, dynamic entertainment, silent auction packages, and a plated dinner. It’s a night to showcase our vital programs, share stories of local women affected by breast cancer and celebrate the achievements of the past year. With plenty of bubbly and spirits to go around, it’s always a glamorous night out to remember.
The Girlfriends Run was created to honor our very good friend, Joleen Skarberg, who was diagnosed with Breast Cancer 14.5 years ago (watch for her, she wears #1 each year!). We honor her while raising funds for other local women who are navigating breast cancer. Hosted by Why Racing Events, the run offers a half marathon, 10K and 6K.
