In the Pink

Today was all about pink. Pink as in Breast Cancer Awareness. Pink as in Love Is a Cure, Twin City Bridal Association's Brunch and Auction held this morning at the Minneapolis Convention Center. This auction is a yearly event benefitting Open Arms of Minnesota, a company which provides meals to women and their families dealing with breast cancer. Open Arms provides 100% organic, freshly prepared meals that have been designed to nurture and nourish.

Wedding vendors donate products and services for both silent and live auction, brides and their families recieve a tax deduction on all money spent, and Open Arms receives all of the proceeds. Everybody wins. This is my fourth year participating, and frankly, my favorite TCBA event.

The event is all in shades of pink, from the volunteers helping to set up the pink draped tables to the beautiful tulip centerpieces provided by Bastian*Skoog. Lovely harbingers of spring and hope. What a beautiful way to open our arms and offer a hlping hand.
