What can I do to help fight Breast Cancer?

This is the question that started Links Des Pink in 2007.  LaNell and Richard Melancon organized the first benefit in conjunction with Melancon Jewelers 25th anniversary celebration. Guests were invited to an afternoon celebration where a silent auction took place and the dragon boat made an appearance.  The Dragon Boat is made possible by the CAJUN INVASION, a team that travels competing in rowing events to promote BREAST CANCER AWARENESS.

Many local organizations along with Melancon Jewelers donated items for the auction and all of the proceeds, $1700, were donated to support breast cancer research. Many guests thought the idea was admirable and offered to help in the next event. A group of us brainstormed on ways to contribute more money to this cause and raise awareness.  We provide information, support & aide on Breast Cancer. Richard Melancon designed a custom logo to promote the Links des Pink awareness program.  The first annual “Golf to Fight Cancer” Tournament by Links des Pink was held in 2010 with the guidance of Richard Melancon and has become the main fundraiser.
