This weekend I had a blast at "Crop for the Cure." This fabulous event organized by survivor Cathy Hopcraft has been running for 6 years: 10 different crops raising between $2000 - $4000 each time for the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation. I don't go every time but when I can, I get tons done, meet new friends, visit with old friends, eat well and, of course, win door prizes. The highlight of the crop is the Pink Out contest and photo on Saturday night. I happened to have the perfect thrifted piece for the occasion...
Tommy Hilfiger top $4.90 VV Boutique
I snagged this awesome top in perfect condition because of the hot fall trend colour, which I happen to love all the time, trend or not. You may think it's a bold colour, but it's really only bold if you wear it like this:
These ladies endorse a cause near and dear to husbands everywhere.
I figured the Pink Out was a good reason to briefly break my mix not match September pledge, so I choose coordinating pink accessories.
You knew this was coming.
This crop is bound to be positive when you're surrounded by women who embody the faith, courage and strength it takes to battle breast cancer and keep on not just living, but thriving.
I was moved seeing the Sea of Pink walking out for the traditional Pink Out photo.
And here we are, showing our Pink Love...
Full grown pink sock monkeys take the prize.
Great weekend, great cause! If anyone would like to be added to the email list to be notified of upcoming Crops for the Cure, contact Cathy. Thanks for the good time, Cathy!
