Hosting a Breast Cancer Party

This month there are races, events, and fundraisers happening everywhere to support Breast Cancer education and research. However, what if we don’t have a way to get involved in these events? Is there a way to still support the cause? Don’t get discouraged because you don’t have to attend a big Breast Cancer event, you can just host your own.

While it seems like a lot of work, it all depends on how elaborate you want to be. Invite a few of your girlfriends over, decorate your party area pink, and share information about Breast Cancer with your guest. You can even make the information into a game like jeopardy and have party favors as prizes.The one thing that you want to make sure that you don’t forget is food. Our friend Kimberlee has provided below some great ideas for vegetable and chip dips to have at your party.
