Pink Pumpkins Partners

Dear Pink Pumpkins Partner,

You may know that my mom, Doreen, was a champion for breast cancer research, even before becoming ill with this horrible disease herself. In one of her last moments, my mom, in her so-cute, funny, and bossy way (Ha!) demanded that Dad and I order 20,000 pink jack-o-lantern candy buckets to hand out in our CITY FURNITURE showrooms, and at the American Cancer Society’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk that October. We were so confused - but of course, I ordered them, per her request.

Sadly, she never got to see them in person. But people of ALL ages loved them, just as she had suspected. I’ve given out those buckets in our stores throughout the month of October, and at the MSABC Walk every year since. The “Pink Pumpkins,” as I call them, are not just buckets to me anymore. They are a symbol of my mom’s memory. They’re a celebration of her spirit, and the spirit of all who have been touched by breast cancer in some way.  They inspire all of us to work harder to spread awareness and find a cure, in honor of the ones we love.

On mom’s behalf, we are taking her “Pink Pumpkins” idea to the next level. This October, we’re installing elaborate table-top displays filled with amazing, professionally hand-carved, PINK Pumpkins, gourds and seasonal florals, and signage that will drive fundraising directly to the ACS in our showrooms and in generous partner locations across the entire state of Florida!

This year the MSABC walk will be virtual, but I can’t let CITY’s support in the fight against breast cancer waver. I’d be honored if you’d consider joining us in our very first official “Pink Pumpkins” fundraising initiative in memory of my mom, and in honor of your own loved ones. Anything you can do would help make a positive impact on breast cancer research, right here in Florida. 

Thank you so much for your support. Blessings,

Andrew Koenig

Welcome to our Team Page. We've formed a team because this cause is important to us. We want to help. And walking and raising money in our local American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event is the best way we can do that. We all have different reasons for participating but we share a determination to help save lives from breast cancer.

There are so many ways that the money our team raises helps. It’s helping fund innovative research. It's providing free information for people dealing with the disease. It’s providing rides to treatment and places to stay for people who have to seek treatment far from home. In short, our money is helping save lives. Consider donating to our team and helping advance the cause.

How We Support the American Cancer Society

Of course we walk in the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event. And we solicit donations from family, friends, and other supporters. But we also schedule fundraisers in lead-up to the big event. Bake-sales, car washes, and countless other types of events. And we promote those on social media, through Facebook and Twitter, by word of mouth, and through flyers at work and around the neighborhood. The success of fundraising events depends on two things - hard work and getting the word out. And we're out to do both. Keep an eye out for our fundraising events.

Join us. Donate today. Or walk with us.
