The 2008 campaign, now in full-swing, hopes to build on the momentum of the previous year and set record breaking fundraising results. Here is your chance to join the combined efforts of thousands of quilters, merchants and fundraisers who are making a difference. The Quilt Pink auction will be starting May 7, 2008 and will conclude in November. With the assistance of Auctionwire, the premiere online auction agency, hundreds of quilts will be available for auction. New this year, you’ll be able to hear about the quilts and the personal stories behind them. Net proceeds from Quilt Pink benefit the Susan G. Komen for the Cure campaign. For more details about the auction, visit www.quiltpink.givingroom.com. Nancy G. Brinker promised her dying sister, Susan G. Komen, that she would do everything in her power to end breast cancer forever. In 1982, that promise became Susan G. Komen for the Cure and launched the global breast cancer movement. Today, Komen for the Cure is the world's largest grassroots network of breast cancer survivors and activists fighting to save lives, empower people, ensure quality care for all and energize science to find the cures. Thanks to events like the Komen Race of the Cure, they have invested early $1 billion to fulfill their promise, becoming the largest source of nonprofit funds dedicated to the fight against breast cancer in the world. For more information about Susan G. Komen for the Cure, breast health or breast cancer, visit www.komen.org.
