Phillips Swift Creek Honors Breast Cancer Awareness Month
On the night of October 5, 2012, Phillips Swift Creek hosted a Think Pink for Breast Cancer Awareness Party and bake sale fundraiser. The clubhouse was decorated in pink and the nearly 50 residents and staff that came out for this great cause wore pink or wore a pink ribbon that was provided. Many residents took the time to buy or simply bake goods for the event. Papa John’s Pizza provided pizzas, and Abbey Road Bar and Grill of Cary donated chicken wings. Phillips Swift Creek’s Maintenance Supervisor, Julio Rivero, provided the music as the DJ for the night. It was great to have all of the residents come together to laugh, dance, eat, and most importantly raise money for Breast Cancer. In the midst of everyone was one of our very own residents that had just undergone a double mastectomy just a few days before the party. In spite of this, her positive spirit and encouragement enlightened the room. There many others in attendance that had personal experiences or had love ones that have had battles with the disease. By the end of the night, the residents raised over $250.00 for the Susan G. Komen Foundation. Residents also wrote well wishes in cards that will be delivered to the Cancer Centers of NC, Breast Cancer Treatment clinic at the Cary, NC location. Phillips Swift Creek will continue to take donations as well as written well wishes through the end of October. Vera Morris, Phillips Swift Creek Property Manager, says, “I couldn’t be more proud to manage such a wonderful group of residents. It was nice to see everyone come together for such a great cause.” For more information about this event or to get involved with Phillips Swift Creek’s support of the Susan G.
