Paint Palestine Pink was founded in August 2010 as a non-profit organization that was initially dedicated to providing diagnostics to help in the fight against breast cancer. We have since been able to expand our services to provide grants for diagnostics and treatment in the fight against ALL cancers.
Our foundation has been providing funding for diagnostic tests since 2010. All funds stay local and we provide services to the men and women of Anderson and surrounding counties. We contract with local facilities and physicians as much as possible but will look outside of the county to help our residents. We have no CEO's or executives drawing salaries. This organization is completely funded by donations and run by a board of directors and community volunteers.
Since 2010 $304,800 in funds have been raised for providing grants for diagnostic/medical procedures in our community..
Paint Palestine Pink kicked off in October 2010 with the 1st Annual Paint Palestine Pink Festival & Education Seminar. Funds were raised for providing mammograms to uninsured and underinsured women and men.
We would like to say a huge THANK YOU to all our sponsors for joining us in the fight against ALL cancers and for helping us make it possible to make this event happen.
ALL FUNDS RAISED BY THIS ORGANIZATION REMAIN IN THE COMMUNITY. The money is used locally only, benefitting residents of Anderson County and immediately surrounding areas.
