It’s time to put on your pink and get ready to see some great fashion, participate in great raffles, but most of all get ready to help the women of North Texas get the medical attention they deserve.
“Puttin on the Pink” is hosted by the Kupferle Health Board of the Texas Health Resources Foundation. The proceeds from this fashion luncheon helps fund their mobile unit. This mobile unit is the doctor’s office on wheels that provides much needed service to women who might otherwise not have access to healthcare.
This year’s event is co-chaired by Sharon Crockett and Heather Senter. These ladies have worked hard to make sure this years event continues the legacy that the volunteers started years ago to raise awareness of the mobile unit so that all women in the North Texas area have the opportunity to get the services they need.
Sharon became involved in the Puttin on the Pink when she learned that her best friend was diagnosed with breast cancer. She soon realized that almost everyone knew someone who has been affected by some form of cancer. Realizing that some people don’t know about the medical exam they should take, or they knew but didn’t have resources they needed to attain these services she knew she had to try and make a difference.
At the luncheon many men and women will learn about the services the mobile unit offers–these people will get the information out to many more people. They will be able to tell that the mobile unit does:
- Breast Cancer Screening Mammogram
- Clinical Breast Examination
- Cervical Cancer Screening
- Sink Cancer Screening
- Colon Cancer Screening
- There is also Prostate Cancer Screening for men
This years’ Puttin on the Pink fashion luncheon will be held at the Fort Worth Convention Center on April 5, starting with a reception at 10:30 with the fashion luncheon at 11:30.
Remember “thisisyourbestyear”. Put on your Pink for a great cause.

ACCLAIMED DOCUMENTARY EXPLORES WOMEN, TRAUMA AND SUCCESS
No More Chains: Succeeding Against The Odds documentary set for Dallas red carpet showing along national screening tour to help women thrive post-trauma
WHO: No More Chains: Succeeding Against The Odds, a documentary that explores trauma and healing in the lives of women, is produced by success coach and noted top-business earner, Ari Squires. The well-received film profiles eleven powerhouse women and features an impressive cast of thought-leaders including: international relationship guru Paul Carrick Brunson, the money maven Patrice C. Washington, and acclaimed writer and speaker Abiola Abrams.
WHAT: These eleven transformative stories of succeeding against the odds peel back layers of pain, fear, and shame from addictions, homelessness, parental abandonment, domestic violence and an HIV diagnosis. The goal of No More Chains: Succeeding Against The Odds is to inspire then empower audiences to release their own chains. A compilation of first-person narratives, childhood reenactments and expert interviews, the film is an extension of a book anthology by the same name, with foreword by actor and speaker Darrin Dewitt Henson and afterword by Abiola Abrams.
The film is set for a Dallas celebrity red carpet screening on Saturday, March 18th at Studio Movie Grill-Spring Valley.

March is National Women’s History Month. A month that honors women who have made a difference, women who are inspirational, women who are strong–you know them. There will be those names that we all have heard and admire, but there are many women who no one but their families and communities will ever know of.
These women may have been in the military, marched for the civil rights of all. They may have been your teacher, your mother, the lady who lived next door or just the nice sales lady who always treated you with respect even though she knew you would not be buying.
This month is in honor of that teacher that kept you from recess to help you with your math. It’s honoring your grandmother who worked so hard–working jobs that you swore you would never do, and she never wanted you to do.
This month is to honor “all women”– the women who were influential in your life. Believe it or not, the celebration of Women’s History Month on a smaller scale started in 1911. It gained national recognition in 1975. You can see the history of Women’s History Month by clicking The History of Women’s History Month.
