More time for a Pink Ribbon Breakfast after Breast Cancer Foundation extends campaign

The Cornerstone Alpaca Stud Pink Ribbon Breakfast was a success and about 70 guests attended the event, says Daleen Bredenkamp, ​​Stud’s event manager.

The annual campaign was extended to June 17 due to poor response to the call to host a fundraising Pink Ribbon breakfast.

This year, breakfast has been reduced by a third, and the NZ Breast Cancer Foundation’s revenue, which uses revenue for patient support services and research, and awareness and education programs, has fallen by $ 600,000.

Ah-Leen Rayner, CEO of the Foundation, states that the charity is desperate to make up for the shortfall.

According to Reiner, in the third year of the resource-poor healthcare system and the Covid-19 pandemic, breast cancer patients are really feeling the impact.

“We are always there for patients, but if we fail to meet our funding goals, it limits the impact we can have.”

She states that the demand for support services has increased significantly since Covid-19.

“Our professional breast care nurses are pushing to the limit with four times as many phones.”

Reiner urges the Waikato people to host their Pink Ribbon breakfast.

Gordonton’s Waikato Alpaca Farm Cornerstone Alpaca Stud hosted a successful Pink Ribbon breakfast with 70 guests, says Stud’s event coordinator Dareen Bredenkamp.

“It was a lot of fun. We raised about $ 1,300, but there are still some Breast Cancer Foundation products in our store that will be added to the total.”

The event included a buffet breakfast, a silent auction with alpaca wool products, raffle, alpaca encounters and feeding, and lectures by Breast Cancer Foundation speakers.

Bredenkamp said: “It was a very rewarding experience. It was a daunting task, but it was worth the support and a good reason. They really need help.”

About 300 women in Waikato are diagnosed with breast cancer each year. It is the most common cancer for New Zealand women.

Pink Ribbon events can be held anytime, anywhere.
