Pink Pearl fundraiser to support young women coping with cancer

Niagara-on-the-Lake resident and ovarian cancer survivor Elise Gasbarrino is inviting people to attend a virtual online fundraiser for Pink Pearl — an organization she started to help young women who have cancer cope with their diagnoses.

Services range from scholarships, to overnight retreats, to one-on-one counselling with a social worker, Gasbarrino said.

While the event is normally held in person, she said pandemic limitations are a bit of a blessing, in that now anyone, anywhere can attend the fundraising event.

The event is Thursday, Feb. 3, at 7 p.m. and will feature stories from Pink Pearl participants as well as a silent auction with prizes like Muskoka getaways, home decor items and wine experiences.
