The Cypress Cove Parrot Heads team that raises funds for the annual Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event recently thanked Cypress Cove for participating in this year’s fundraiser. Due to the hard work of the Parrot Heads and the generosity of the Cove community, $17,000 was raised to fight breast cancer, which is the second most common cancer in American women after skin cancers.
Did you know that 1 in 8 women in the US will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime? According to the National Breast Cancer Foundation, there are over 3.5 million breast cancer survivors in the United States. Your generosity and support will ensure that many more women will benefit from research, treatment, and education.
Each year in July, the Cypress Cove Parrot Heads team gathers donated gift baskets and raffles them to the Cove community. All proceeds from the raffle go directly to Making Strides.
Cypress Cove donates a One-week Getaway Package, and it is a popular gift for people to “bid” on every year in the raffle. Despite the pandemic and its related economic problems, the Parrot Heads still sold over 15,000 raffle tickets for July’s fundraiser. Proudly, this team remains ranked as number one in fundraising out of 162 other teams! Way to go, Parrot Heads!
