Event raises $195,000 for Vancouver breast cancer charity



Arnada: Nearly 400 people took part in a fundraiser for Vancouver-based Pink Lemonade Project, raising $195,000 to better the lives of those with breast cancer. The March 22 Pink Glow event at the Leftbank Annex in Portland was dubbed a “party with a purpose.” Guests dined, bid on auction items and danced into the night. The donated money will benefit the nonprofit group’s programs, including educational efforts, retreats and mentorship, as well as the new Lemon Drops program, which will provide child care to women undergoing breast cancer treatment.
