The eighth annual Pink Tie Party to support breast cancer patients in the Brainerd Lakes Area is 6-9 p.m. Oct. 5 at Cragun's Resort,.

The Pink Tie Party will feature hors d'oeuvres, dessert samples, silent auction and raffle.

The Pink Tie Party presented by Consolidated Telecommunications Company 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. Last year, the Pink Tie Party raised over $20,000 and we hope to surpass that amount at this year's event.

The funds are used to support patients who are undergoing active treatment for breast cancer through continued improvements in care and non-medical assistance. The Pink Ribbon Cupboard serves breast cancer patients living in our communities who are currently in treatment regardless of their healthcare provider. Below are some examples of how funds have been distributed to support patients:

• Gas cards,

• Wigs for breast cancer patients,

• Rent payment,

• Mortgage payment,

• Payment of auto insurance,

• Payment of utilities,

• Grocery gift cards.

"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 Marian Foehrenbacher, Cancer Center manager at Essentia Health-St. Joseph's Medical Center, in a news release. "Having resources for helping to treat the entire patient, not just physically, spiritually, and emotionally through compassionate care by Essentia Health staff, but practically by helping to meet the needs patients have beyond the disease."

"We are so excited and appreciative to CTC, Cragun's Resort, Tito's Handmade Vodka, Birgits Jewelers, Cash Wise Liquor, GLS Promotions, Range Printing, and all the individuals and businesses that are supporting this event," David Jeremiason, director of St. Joseph's Foundation, said in a statement. "We hope both men and women will attend and help us raise money to support breast cancer patients and their families through The Pink Ribbon Cupboard. All money raised will stay local to help the men and women in the community undergoing breast cancer treatment."
