OSHKOSH, Wis. — Oshkosh Express Laundry Center recently presented a $2,235 check to Aurora Health Care Foundation’s Oshkosh Pink Possible Breast Health Fund. The Pink Possible campaign, staged throughout October each year, engages local businesses to raise money for Aurora Cancer Care breast cancer patients and their families.
The laundry donated the proceeds from sales of Pink Possible shopping bags, as well as 5% of its October total sales, to the cause, according to Manager Kristi Williams.
“We feel it’s important to contribute to Pink Possible because so many members of our community suffer from breast cancer each year,” she says. “Over the past four years, Oshkosh Express Pink Possible donations have totalled more than $8,000.”
In 2018, Pink Possible raised $25,000 throughout Wisconsin to support breast cancer patient education, prevention, patient experience, research and survivorship programming, according to Foundation Coordinator Molly Yatso-Butz, Aurora Health Care Foundation, North Region.
“The money raised in 2019 will be used for a new breast cancer support group that begins in January 2020, as well as wigs and massages for cancer patients,” says Yatso-Butz. “We are so fortunate to have Oshkosh Express contributing to Pink Possible.”
