POWER OF PINK BY THE NUMBERS

Terri Sterling - Thursday, June 29, 2017

Remember what it’s all about . . . helping our own friends and neighbors who are underinsured and uninsured and need potentially life-saving mammograms!

Over the past 12 years, the Power of Pink has raised more than $1,075,000 for the fight against breast cancer in our own Rutherford County community. The fund raised more than $275,000 in FY 2017 (ending June 30, 2017). WATS 2016 raised $200,595, providing approximately 73% of this total.

During FY 2017, the Power of Pink sponsored:

  • 295 screening mammograms.
  • 131 diagnostic mammograms.
  • 111 breast ultrasounds.
  • 3 breast MRIs.

These numbers represent women in our own community who have received breast cancer screening services which they otherwise could not afford. Continued support of Wine Around the Square is critical to the Power of Pink Fund!
