SaddleBrooke’s Power of Pink fundraising event benefiting Susan G. Komen of Southern Arizona is almost here. It’s not too late to purchase a ticket for the October 29, 2015, dinner and auction event at SaddleBrooke’s HOA 1. Tickets are on sale at the Administration Office for $20 per person.

Many silent auction items will be up for bid beginning at 3:30 p.m. Get a head start on your holiday shopping or snag a great bargain for your own enjoyment.

Gather your neighbors and friends and your collective piggy banks. Bid on one of two musical evenings available in the live auction. Think about having a DJ spin oldies at your next gathering. Gus Di Biasi and Ms. Gina are offering two hours of music for a private event.

If your preference is for easy listening, gospel, Elvis or Karaoke music, bid on a musical evening offered by Ron Aeschliman. The winning bidders will select their venue and work with the musicians to schedule an appropriate date. Either will add that wow factor to a birthday celebration, a unit party, a sporting group gathering or just a fun occasion with friends and neighbors.

Also available for bidding at the live auction will be an original sculpture of a Native American Woman and a gift card tree filled with a wide variety of cards for dining out, sporting goods, entertainment or home improvement. The lucky bidders for that gift card collection will be able to complete their holiday shopping the easy way!

Whatever your bidding choices, do join us on Wednesday, October 29 for SaddleBrooke Communities’ Power of Pink on behalf of Susan G. Komen of Southern Arizona.

Your $20 ticket to this event includes a lasagna and salad buffet. The bar will be open for beverages throughout the evening. Doors open at 3:30 p.m. for the silent auction. The buffet is available from 4:30 to 5:00 p.m. The live auction begins at 5:25 p.m.

Don’t forget to bring along cash, check books or credit cards. All of the proceeds benefit breast cancer education, services and research. 75 percent of the funds go to direct services for Arizonians. 25 percent goes to research for a cure. People in need of diagnostic services, treatment and follow-up medical care who are hoping for a cure will appreciate your donation to this great cause!
