Create Your Own Custom Breast Cancer Fundraising Event

Costumes For a Cure was a private Halloween party on Long Island that accepted donations for the Maurer Foundation. The charity element added a unique twist to what would have been a standard Halloween bash.

While the Maurer Foundation has it’s own regular breast cancer fundraising events like the upcoming Flamingo Bowl, June’s Pink Diamond Dinner, and fall’s Golf Classic, much of our funding comes in the form of individual donations and fundraising events organized by creative and giving advocates like you!

Some of the interesting events our volunteers have come up with over the past several years include Halloween parties, holiday home lightings, dress down days, cookie baking, a pink fire truck parade, and donations from proceeds of sales of specific products or services. We also work with students to create service projects for Scouts and for bar/bat mitzvahs.

Many fundraisers organize their event to commemorate Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October, but opportunities abound throughout the year to support breast health. In fact, your unique event might benefit from not being lost in the crowd of breast cancer events that often occurs in October.

Fundraising events can be organized by companies, clubs, schools, or individuals. They are a great way to give back to the community, make your event unique, and in the case of organizations, create positive PR. Depending on your needs, the Maurer Foundation can offer speakers, fliers, goodie bag items, brochures, signage, and promotion for the event through our website, our Facebook page, Twitter profile, and press contacts.
