The community is invited to the 10th annual Pink Tie Party from 6-9 p.m. Nov. 7 at the Legacy Clubhouse at Cragun’s Resort on Gull Lake to support breast cancer patients in the Brainerd lakes area.

The evening will feature hors d’oeuvres, dessert samples, silent auction and raffle, and a personal story of inspiration and thanks from a breast cancer survivor.

Presented by Consolidated Telecommunications Co., the fundraiser offers a special occasion to socialize with community members while supporting an important cause.

All proceeds benefit breast cancer patients through The Pink Ribbon Cupboard, which supports local patients who are undergoing active treatment for breast cancer through continued improvements in care and non-medical assistance.

Funds have been distributed to support patients in treatment regardless of their health care provider in a number of ways: gas cards, rent payment, mortgage payment, payment of auto insurance, payment of utilities, grocery gift cards and more.


“It’s one way that as a community, we can collaborate to extend our outreach to improve the life of cancer survivors and their families in the Brainerd lakes area,” said Kathy Buxton, co-founder and board member of the Pink Ribbon Cupboard, in a news release.

Tickets may be purchased at Essentia Health-St. Joseph’s Medical Center gift shop, Birgit’s Jewelers and Cash Wise Liquor in Baxter. Tickets are $35 per person in advance, $45 per person at the door.
