PBCC, PA First Ladies Join to “Knock Out Breast Cancer”

Posted By on June 17th, 2013 at 8:17 am | 29 comments.

Pat, Susan Corbett, Steve edited for PLThe PBCC honored PA First Lady Susan Corbett and former First Ladies last week during a special “Knock Out Breast Cancer” rose dedication in the Governor’s Residence Gardens.

The ceremony featured special Pink Knock Out Roses donated by Star Roses and Plants/Conard Pyle in collaboration with Morris Arboretum.  The roses will serve as a living legacy  to showcase the crucial work of the First Ladies and the importance of our goal to “find a cure for breast cancer now… so our daughters won’t have to.”

The PBCC also honored a few special Grassroots Partners at the event. North Dickinson Elementary School Students Sam, Clay, Nicholas, Delaney and Mia from Carlisle have raised thousands of dollars – all by asking their fellow classmates, teachers and staff to contribute their spare change.  The Penny Wars competition spread throughout the school district.  Last year, Penny Wars raised nearly $6,000 for the PBCC.

If you would like to see the Pink Knock Out Roses up close, the Governor’s Residence offers summer garden tours every Tuesday and Thursday between 10:00am and 2:00p.  Tours are conducted at no charge, but reservations are required. For more information on the tours, click here.
