The Ultimate Girls’ Night Out Raises $20,000 for the Fight Against Breast Cancer

Susan G. Komen Central and South Jersey’s third annual Pink Power party, presented by iPlay America on Thursday, March 8, was the ultimate night out full of excitement, inspiration and plenty of girl power.

Thanks to the generosity and support of guests, sponsors, vendors and committee members, this event raised $20,000 that will allow Komen CSNJ to further our mission of saving lives by meeting the most critical needs in our communities and investing in breakthrough research to prevent and cure breast cancer.

Some great vendors!

Held on #InternationalWomensDay this year, this event connected many fabulous female entrepreneurs in the area with attendees and celebrated the impact women in our communities have made for our mission. Guests enjoyed plenty of shopping, from jewelry and clothing, to skincare and crafts; there was a vendor for every taste and style! Check out the full list of 2018 Pink Power Party vendors here.

The fun didn’t stop at shopping! Every guest 21+ sipped on a refreshing Pink Power Paloma, generously sponsored by Tito’s Handmade Vodka and iPlay America, and enjoyed incredible SWAG bags filled with goodies. The tricky tray raffle held prizes worth up to $250 and included the hottest beauty products, fun experiences and more donated by generous patrons and businesses in the community.
