Pretty In Pink at Knott’s For the Cure
* This is written by me for GigaSavvy. I do not work for or with any brand mentioned in this article, nor do I have any official relationship with them. I attended a media event for “Knott’s Berry Farm for the Cure” with complementary passes. All thoughts and opinions remain my own.*
Have you been to Knott’s lately? If you have, you may have noticed a lot of pink and hearts decorating the park. No, it’s not for Valentine’s Day, but for something even more special and important. Knott’s Berry Farm is proudly partnering up with Susan G. Komen Orange County for the second year in a row to offer a very special “Pink Ticket” through March 27th, with a portion of the proceeds benefiting Susan G Komen Orange County, your local breast health organization helping to serve women and save lives.
At the kick off event for Knott’s Pink for the Cure, we were able to honor an amazing fellow blogger and dear friend, Jaime Jenkins of Polka Dots on Parade, who’s currently fighting breast cancer and is a beautiful, positive woman! She is such a ray of sunshine and brings joy and happiness wherever she goes. Her strength and bright spirit has inspired many of us; her smile will light up the room, her hugs will lift your spirit with how powerful they are, her energy and enthusiasm is contagious.
KNOTT’S BERRY FARM FOR THE CURE
Through March 27, Knott’s Berry Farm and Susan G. Komen Orange County are offering special “Pink Tickets” (order online) and a limited edition of specially designed Knott’s for the Cure “pink” merchandise. The merchandise is super cute and very affordable.
At the kickoff event, many of the amazing women who are Pink Warriors, survivors of breast cancer, rode on the Jaguar ride at Knott’s. Many of these courageous ladies will fight every day of their life to make it through this. Their strength and positivity amazes and inspires me. I just love Jaime’s contagious smile here. It is just full of pure joy! 🙂
I somehow was lucky enough to get on the ride, in the front, with Jaime. Such.A.Blast!
Here we are! Such a fun moment! Special thanks goes out to Kirstin from SoCal Kids Outdoor Adventures for capturing this amazing shot!
75% of the funds raised for Susan G. Komen are used to provide local services throughout Orange County:
- Breast cancer detection and treatment education
- Information and support for breast cancer survivors and families
- Funding for free mammograms for uninsured and underserved women
25% of the funds raised for Susan G. Komen support national research to discover the cure for breast cancer.
Some of the goodies for sale for Knott’s Pink! Shirts (the larger sizes, XL+ were $12) and water bottles are only $10. I bought mine, to show my love and support. Don’t forget to stop in and grab yours too!
2014 Knott’s For the Cure
Last year in 2014, the successful two-month partnership between Knott’s Berry Farm and Susan G. Komen Orange County helped to raise nearly $100,000 for the organization. With the funds raised, underserved and underinsured women and men in Orange County were provided access to breast health care and services.
