Fundraising for Susan G. Komen Greater Pennsylvania
Planning a Fundraising Activity for Komen Greater PA
Over three decades ago, pink was just another color. Today, pink often symbolizes and is associated with breast cancer awareness. But pink is more than just a color, it is more than just a symbol; it is an opportunity for you to join the Susan G. Komen® Greater Pennsylvania Affiliate in turning awareness into action, to be… More Than Pink.

TAP INTO ESTABLISHED FUNDRAISERS & EVENTS
Option 1: You may want to consider not using the Komen name/logo and instead making a general statement that the funds raised will go to a local breast health organization or breast cancer research and support. We would be honored to receive funds raised and would give public recognition for your donation.
Option 2: Rally for the Cure® has expanded their well-established golf program to other events. You can now plan a Rally for the Cure® program for sporting events like golf and tennis, dinner events such as wine-tasting or group/club activities such as a bridge or book clubs. Learn how you can become a Rally Ambassador.
