An Open Letter: 2012 Think Pink Ladies Basketball Classic
January 27, 2012
In my new position of managing the digital and social media efforts for a group of auto dealerships, I feel very fortunate that I have been able to take those aspects of Marketing that I find the most excitng and parlay them into a position that allows me to utilize my exprience and knowledge but to continue to learn - EVERY DAY.
As we have begun to ramp up our social media marketing efforts, I am finding that one of the thinkgs that I most enjoy is the opportunity to really get involved and represent our group in the community.
One such opportunity presented its self last week when we agreed to host a Think Pink Ladies Basketball Classic. The event, hosted by University High School in Orlando.brought over 21 ladies basketball teams together on the harwood to not only compete but to raise money for Breast Cancer Awareness and Research.
I have seen many fundraising events for Cancer start out with enthusiasm but that seem to wain within a few years time.
This is not the case with the Think Pink Classic. Originally conceived by the University High School Ladies Basketball Coach, Jason Barnard, the event is now in its fourth year and is growing exponentially every year. This year, over 1,200 were in attendance to support, not only their teams but to join the Fight for the Cure.
As someone who was diagnosed nearly three years ago, this was an event that was very near and dear to me personally. And I was extremely honored to be able to be involved.
I would like to thank all those that worked so hard to make the Think Pink Classic such an outstanding event.
Most of all, we all had the rare opportunity to come out and watch some of Florida’s most exceptonal athletes play.
Perhaps the most thrilling event of the weekend was having the priviledge of watching University High School Lady Cougar, January Miller, not only reach the 2,000 point mark in her career.
Again, it was an absolute honor to take part in the event and to witness such a wonderful display of sportsmanship by all the teams involved!
Thank you all for your overwhelming support and dedication to this event and cause.
With Sincerest Regards,
