“WITCHES WEAR PINK” is a growing group of dedicated women who have joined hands to strengthen the fight against breast cancer. The American Cancer Society estimates that 1 in 8 women will develop breast cancer during her life time. About 232,670 new cases of invasive breast cancer will be diagnosed in women and nearly 40,000 lives will be lost. Our goal is to help lower these statistics by raising money for breast cancer research, preventative care medicine and the women’s cancer fund. All fundraising for our 2014 event will benefit the Maine Cancer Foundation.

When: Saturday, October 18th, Witching Hours 6 - 10pm

Where: The Woodlands Country Club, 39 Woods Road, Falmouth, ME
