This Thursday, September 25th is our Pink Ribbon Luncheon and we are so excited! The Pink Ribbon Luncheon will be held at the Northwest Arkansas Convention Center in Springdale at 11:30 a.m. Doors and silent auction will open at 10:45 a.m.  Tickets are still available for purchase online at www.komenozark.org.

This year our Featured Guest Speaker will be Amy Purdy, the 2014 Sochi bronze medal Paralympian snowboarder and Dancing with the Starts Season 18 runner-up. The luncheon is presented by The Breast Center, a Mana Clinic as an opportunity to educate women about breast self-awareness, to celebrate survivorship and kick off October as National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Amy Purdy will speak on “The Power Within” as she describes her battle with bacterial meningitis when she was 19 years old. Amy believes beauty is “not what you have or what you don’t have, but what you give” and is currently partnering with Oprah Winfrey in a nationwide tour where the two will aim to inspire females across the country,

The luncheon will also feature a silent auction, fashion show and survivor tribute. Local breast cancer survivors will model fall fashions from Town & Country and footwear from Warren’s Shoes.  Tickets are $50 per individual or $500 per table and may be purchased online at www.komenozark.org or by calling 479-450-7465.
