The 2013 Pink Affair to Take Place March 9 and Benefit TurningPoint Women's Healthcare

The 2013 Pink Affair, a special dinner and auction, will take place 7 p.m. Saturday, March 9th, at Country Club of the South. TurningPoint Women's Healthcare is the beneficiary of this year's event.

In 2002, the Zeta Tau Alpha (ZTA) North Fulton Link alumnae chapter hosted the very first Pink Affair silent auction to benefit ZTA’s Foundation and National Philanthropy, Breast Cancer Education and Awareness. Each year since, The Pink Affair has benefited ZTA Foundation; however, the alumnae decided that 75 percent of proceeds should benefit non-profit organizations in the local community involved in breast cancer research, awareness, support, rehabilitation and/or education.

In 2007 TurningPoint Women's Healthcare was selected as one of the local beneficiaries of the event. And, almost immediately a "partnership" of friendship and support between the The Pink Affair Event Committee and TurningPoint began.

After 11 years the ZTA North Fulton Link Alumnae Chapter and The Pink Affair have raised more than $300,000 in the fight against breast cancer.

ZTA North Fulton Link and The Pink Affair Event Committee are thrilled to be joining forces with TurningPoint Women’s Healthcare in 2013 to make The Pink Affair an annual fundraising event that will solely benefit TurningPoint Women’s Healthcare for many years to come.

At 7 p.m. on Saturday, March 9, The Pink Affair, featuring a special dinner and auction, will take place at Country Club of the South, 4100 Old Alabama Rd.  in Johns Creek.  Tickets are $85.  For more information on tickets or sponsorship, please contact kburpo@myturningpoint.org or call 770-360-9271.  To order tickets directly, visit www.thepinkaffair.org or www.myturningpoint.org
