RAISING AWARENESS AND FUNDS ``ONE PINK BOW AT A TIME``.
The Pink Bow outreach program has continued to grow every year since 2007 and has raised over $650,000 total to date, reaching 1000’s of people with it’s vibrant message of hope!
BCC Rally’s Pink Bow Campaign started in 2007 when a few women in a Charlotte neighborhood had the idea to tie pink bows on mailboxes during October. This served as both a fundraiser and an awareness campaign for breast cancer. Volunteers carefully cut pink tulle and manually created the bows. The inaugural campaign generated almost $500.00. In 2008, BCC Rally targeted more homes in the neighborhood and raised over $5,000 for the breast cancer cause.
By 2010, BCC Rally volunteers further realized the high-growth potential and impact of the pink bow. They identified a manufacturer to custom design and produce the bows and the first pull-bow design was introduced to Charlotte communities. The Pink Bow Campaign skyrocketed to raising over $37,000 in 2010, and has continued to expand each year raising a phenomenal $94,000 in 2018.
Last year marked the 15th anniversary of BCC Rally, when we surpassed our year-to-date fundraising goal of a total $2.2 million donated to Susan G. Komen® Charlotte! The Pink Bow Campaign contributed over $680,000 to that goal, while reaching thousands of people with its vibrant message of hope! We are truly grateful to the volunteers and community partners who have made the BCC Rally Pink Bow Campaign so successful over the past decade.
After careful consideration and upon exceeding our fifteen-year goals, we are announcing that BCC Rally will dissolve in 2019. While the organization will dissolve, the legacy of BCC Rally will continue in a new venture. We are excited to share that Komen Charlotte will continue BCC Rally’s Pink Bow Campaign! With their greater network of volunteers, community partners and resources in their thirteen-county region, we are confident the Pink Bows will reach a broader population and continue to raise awareness and substantial funds.
We hope you will support and participate in the 2019 Campaign with Susan G Komen-Charlotte, as they continue to raise hope, one pink bow at a time.
The Board of BCC Rally is dedicated to ensuring a smooth transition of the Pink Bow Campaign to Komen Charlotte and dissolution in 2019, and we sincerely appreciate your support during this time.
