23rd Annual In the Pink of Health Luncheon

Today is the 23rd Annual In the Pink of Health Luncheon. Canopy is immensely thankful to In the Pink of Health for their unwavering support of Canopy from the moment a local cancer survivorship center was simply a dream. With the help of In the Pink, generous donors and so many in our incredible community, Canopy is able to provide nearly 1000 guest encounters each month to those affected by cancer. In commemoration of this special day, Canopy is sharing last year's 2022 committee photo as a token of appreciation. We look forward to sharing photos from our 2023 event. Canopy thanks the Committee for their efforts, and attendees for their generosity in supporting the many organizations impacted by funds raised today, including our very own, Canopy.
