The Winters Police Department and Putah Creek Café have partnered for a Pink Patch Project Dine and Donate Fundraiser.
Held on October 14th from 4:30 pm to 8:30 pm at the Putah Creek Café (1 Main Street) Pink Patches and Raffle tickets will be available for purchase while diners enjoy the delicious menu offerings of the restaurant. 100% of the proceeds from patch and raffle ticket sales along with 15% of Café sales will go directly to this year’s Pink Patch beneficiary, the UC Davis Breast Cancer Center. The Center offers imaging, prevention strategies, genetic counseling, risk assessment, and specialty physician patient care to women.
The Pink Patch Program started with southern California public safety agencies as a collaborative public awareness campaign designed to bring attention to the fight against breast cancer. The program centers on pink versions of the Public Safety Officer’s uniform patch. The project goal is to raise funds from the sale of pink patches to go directly to fund the research, treatment and education needed to help find a cure and to support breast cancer research organizations in combating this devastating disease. The pink patches are intended to stimulate conversation with the community and to encourage public awareness about the importance of early detection and the on-going fight against this disease.
You can purchase a Pink Patch for $10 by visiting the Putah Creek Café or the Winters Police Department. Orders are also accepted by mail at Winters Police Department Pink Patch Project 702 Main St Winters, CA 95694 (please remember to include a self-addressed stamped envelope to receive your patch).
