Puttin on the Pink Celebrates 8th Year Funding Breast Cancer Awareness

by James Coulter

Sher Thrush knows many family members and friends who struggled with breast cancer. Not wanting anyone else to go through that same struggle alone, she started the Puttin on the Pink fundraiser at the Lakeland Elks nine years ago.

Now, nearly a decade later, she and her fellow Elks once again hosted their annual fundraiser to raise proceeds for breast cancer awareness. The 8th annual Puttin on the Pink fundraiser was hosted last Friday at the Lakeland Elks Lodge.

The event was sold out that evening, with the clubhouse packed with members and guests wanting to help support breast cancer awareness. The main event was the Prime Rib Dinner, which featured live entertainment from local bands like Carlos and Company. Aside from enjoying prime rib, attendees could also participate in raffles and silent auctions for hundreds of prizes and even watch a fashion show.

Sher Thresh owed the overall success of that night’s fundraiser to word of mouth, as well as the event’s nearly decade-long legacy. Having been hosted for so long, the fundraiser has garnered quite a reputation, as well as a following of caring and compassionate people wanting to give back to a good cause.

“We have been doing this for nine years,” she said. “There is nobody who has not been touched by this disease, whether they have it themselves or friends or family…Come out and join us again next year.”
