Save the Tatas! (also my last event with Orange Coast Memorial)

I have to admit, this was not solely my event. In fact, it was mostly handled by the fabulous marketing team at Orange Coast Memorial. 24 Carrots handled all the details of this fabulously pink event to benefit the Orange Coast Memorial Breast Center. 

Like every event, the devil in the details. While this event was free to attend, guests had the opportunity to buy quilt squares that will be assembled into a quilt to be displayed at the Orange Coast Memorial Breast Center. This project was spear-headed by an inspirational 12 year old who has dealt with the pains of breast cancer. For most of her young life, she has watched her mother struggle with this horrible disease. She has pledged to raise $12,000  in a years time to support Orange Coast Memorial's Breast Center. In addition to selling quilt squares, pink plush robes were available for purchase with the proceeds supporting Orange Coast. 

From the pink drinks to desserts, florals and linens, there was not a single aspect that didn't have a touch of the iconic breast cancer color.  

With love, dedication and hard work we can all help to end this horrible disease and support the woman bravely battling it.
