Bloomfield Hills, MI – MainStreet Design Build, inspired by the Shades of Pink Foundation’s mission that no person should have to forgo life-saving medical treatment, was honored to help support the organization’s Pars Fore Pink 3rd Annual Golf Outing.

Founded by Dr. Jacqueline Walters, the Shades of Pink Foundation’s mission is treating the inner and outer beauty of breast cancer patients/survivors. They raise funds for local residents who do not have insurance, and provide them with physician recommended mammograms.

“All of us at MainStreet are deeply inspired by the strength of patients battling breast cancer,” says Christine Ramaekers, Vice President. “Cancer is a heavy burden, further complicated by having to take care of family and work. So we jumped at the chance to help again this year!”

Continuing their 3-year tradition with the Annual Golf Outing, the MainStreet team was thrilled to participate, help fundraise, and provide golf balls. This year’s goal was to raise $50,000, and they’ve gotten very close, all funds going to cancer care programs at UPMC Chautauqua.

The fundraising tournament took place at the Birmingham Country Club, and included 18 holes of golf, lunch, and dinner for participants. Efforts continue on the part of local businesses and organizations to support the Shades of Pink Foundation and their charitable work in the area.

“After beating breast cancer twice, I established the Shades of Pink Foundation to help ease the financial burdens of women facing breast cancer so they can concentrate on treatment and healing,” beams Dr. Jacqueline Walters. MainStreet has been thrilled to help her do just that.

About the Shades of Pink Foundation

Shades of Pink Foundation (SOPF) was founded in 2005 as a result of a conversation among a breast cancer surgeon, a friend, and a patient. The combination of treatment-related costs and daily living expenses were causing tremendous financial stress for the patient and her family. The physical and emotional toll of breast cancer is well known. The financial impact of the diagnosis is not. The patient feared losing her home because of the financial burden. That conversation resulted in a plan that created Shades of Pink Foundation. The ‘Walk at the Zoo’ annual walk has been the cornerstone to bring awareness of SOPF and to solicit donors and sponsorships. It continues as SOPF’s signature event drawing more than 1,000 supporters, survivors, families, friends, and caregivers to the zoo for an emotional, fun, and memorable experience.
