The History of The Pink Pamper
In the beginning, this group of passionate friends began to raise money by taking their rather unique concept for a “Health and Beauty Fair” to the ground floor of a local Crowne Plaza Hotel. Their idea was to turn one of the hotel’s ballrooms into a combination of a shopping day and a pampering spa day. The event also included hip fashion designs, food and entertainment. In addition, guests could watch as models walked by in outfits the clothing vendors had provided. There were many gift baskets and auction items that attendees could bid on. All the items for the auction were 100% donated by the sponsors.
The success of the Health and Beauty Fairs grew over the years with both attendance and money raised. That success inspired The Pink Pamper to explore other opportunities for fundraising. In 2014 and 2015, they partnered with a local Macy’s store and held an event within the store called “Sip, Sample and Save.” This after-hours event allowed ticket holders to shop until they dropped as they enjoyed tremendous savings throughout the store. The lucky shoppers also loved being able to visit a variety of restaurant and spirit vendors stationed around the store. Then, in 2015, the first-ever casino night which was called “Blackjack and All That Jazz” was held. It received rave reviews from the guests, vendors and sponsors and was held again in 2016.
As time went on, The Pink Pamper not only ramped up its fundraising efforts but also expanded its efforts to help these women and their families by establishing new funds. The G.I.F.T. Fund, which stands for Getting Involved for Women in Treatment, was established to help patients currently undergoing treatment with gift shopping for their families during the holiday season. The HaLo Fund was established to help women who had experienced the trauma of hair loss due to chemotherapy by providing a $350 voucher towards the purchase of a beautiful, natural-looking wig.
