With their 2011 donation of $6,490.00 to Miles Perret Cancer Service Center Links des Pink brings awareness, aid & research not just to Breast Cancer survivors & their families. Links des Pink is a volunteer group who promote Breast Cancer Awareness & aid to the community of Vermilion Parish. Pinking of the Towns in October is just one of the many ways they arouse attention. Their first Annual Golf Tournament was a huge success, also participating in the Cattle Festival, Komen of Acadiana Race, Painting with a twist & Art for A Cure. They have also been very successful with apparel incorporating their own Fleur de lis design logo designed by Richard Melancon . Their website –www.LinksdesPink.org has many of their accomplishments and activities. There is also a dedication page for you to add a name and story of a survivor of in memory of someone you have lost. Donations may be made at any time by contacting any of the group, calling or donating to their pink canisters.

We are very Blessed to be a part of this community and we are doing our best to make it a healthier & happier place to live. By supporting us, your neighbors, friends & family can someday live without breast cancer. Our profits are all contributed to help cancer survivors & victims through research, education & care.” says LaNell.
