Fighting at the Store....?!?

Crafty Scrapper will host the 4th Annual Breast Cancer Crop benefiting the Breast Cancer 3-Day Walk on Saturday, September 13th 2008 from 10am-midnight. This annual favorite offers scrapbookers a time to enjoy their favorite hobby by cropping for the cure.

Laura Megonigal is the organizer of this event and the founder of the "Pink Junkies" 3-day walking team. This will be her 4th year to participate in the 3-day walk. Thousands of women and men will unite in cities across the country and walk 60 miles over a course of 3 days. It's a weekend of hope as we honor lives lost, celebrate survivors, and promote breast cancer research. The Pink Junkies are committed to walk 60 miles in memory of those who died and for those who survived breast cancer.

Please let us know if you are a survivor so they can walk for you, or in memory of a loved one.

On this day, there will be 50 women Scrapbooking in the store in the largest crop we do each year. This year's crop sold out in a matter of hours. However, the store will be open as usual and there will be plenty of activities going on for anyone visiting the store. There will be a Pink Knock Out Boxing Ring out in front of our store. For a $5.00 donation you can have your photograph taken in the ring with a friend. There are pink boxing gloves for you to wear in the photos. There will be some make and takes happening. The store is stocked full of new products as well.

Tickets for wonderful raffle prizes will be sold. In fact these can already be purchased at the store. Along with all the scrapbook products, we have a Dooney purse, pink digital camera, camera bag, lots of bath stuff, travel bags, breasts cancer Brighton bracelet, Coach breast cancer key chain and lots more. There is also a separate raffle for a $400 Coach purse.

You will see many of these prizes along with other mementos in our store window!!

What a great event! We'd love it if you'd share your photos from the fundraiser, as well as your on-event photos, on the official Breast Cancer 3-Day Flickr group, Facebook fan page or MySpace page.
