Pink Ribbons, Inc. Sneak Peek Screening – May 31st

Filed under blog

Tickets are going fast for our sneak peek benefit screening of Pink Ribbons, Inc. next Thursday, May 31st, in San Francisco. Critics are calling this hard-hitting documentary “powerful” and “subversive”. Join us! Bring your friends. We promise you’ll never see a pink ribbon the same way again.

$75 – Action Speaks Louder Than Pink Reception
5:30 – 6:30pm: Meet and mingle over hors d’ouevres and wine with award-winning author Peggy Orenstein followed by the film screening and Q&A discussion

$35 – General Admission
6:30 – 9:30pm: Film screening, light snacks and silent auction. Q&A discussion with Peggy Orenstein immediately following the film.

We are deeply grateful to our event hosts and business sponsors who have made this event possible (not a pinkwasher among them). Can we count on you to sponsor this event? There are still opportunities available – we’d love to have you.

It’s no news to BCAction members that breast cancer and pink ribbon marketing has become big business for corporations and organizations whose motives don’t always put patient needs before financial gain. As one woman living with breast cancer says in the film, “Our disease is being used for people to profit. And that’s not OK.”

For over ten years, BCAction’s Think Before You Pink campaigns have challenged pinkwashers and urged people to ask critical questions about breast cancer fundraising. We’re thrilled to see this message go mainstream in such a provocative way.

We hope to see you there if you’re in the area, and we hope you will tell all your friends to see this important film.

And don’t forget to get a free copy of our Think Before You Pink Toolkit, full of resources and information to help you take action.

    I’ve been contacted by the Breast Cancer Prevention Fund for a donation. Are they part of the “pink-wash” group of fund raisers? How can I know?
