Donation Drive: Pink Lemonade Project
Posted on September 21 2019
Fall is here! It's a beautiful time in Portland, with leaves changing and a crisp feeling in the air--a busy time for parents and students heading back to school, with the hustle and bustle of holiday planning right around the corner. More importantly, we must remember that October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Lille Boutique is running our annual in-store donation drive for the Pink Lemonade Project and donating a portion of our sales from the month. Pink Lemonade Project (501c3) is an amazing local charity founded in 2010 by Drs. Allen and Cassie Gabriel when they noticed a serious lack of information and resources within the breast cancer community, such as when someone should get a mammogram (with or without a history of breast cancer), as well as the rights and available options for restoration after having a mastectomy or lumpectomy. Over the years, they have grown to provide a number of support groups and retreats for the over 3,000 people diagnosed with breast cancer every year in our region. Together with our contribution, your donations will go directly to Pink Lemonade Project so they can continue to support, educate, and empower those who are impacted by breast cancer in our community.
