Community Picnic to Celebrate Pleasure Island Breast Cancer Patients and Supporters

CARLOINA BEACH,  NC. – North Carolina nonprofit Little Pink Houses of Hope (LPHOH) is returning to Pleasure Island for its fourth year and celebrating breast cancer survivorship with a Community Picnic at Carolina Beach Lake Park.   The event will be held on Wednesday, April 30, 2014 from 11-2 pm and is free to the public.  
The mission of LPHOH is to offer families living with breast cancer an opportunity to reconnect and celebrate life in a relaxing environment.   
It takes a community effort to put on such an event and the Little Pink Community Picnic is designed to celebrate the wonderful partnership of their organization and the local community. The Pleasure Island community has rallied around LPHOH and continues that tradition in their involvement with the picnic event.  Delicious food will be provided by Island Hots and Kate’s Pancake House, while Wheel Fun Rentals will have pedal boats available for participants.  An appearance by the Pink Heals Fire Truck will truly get everyone in the spirit of the event.  Special musical performances by Curtis Williams will cap off the event.  The event is free for the community. “We are thrilled to be welcomed with such a strong embrace from the Pleasure Island community,” Founder Jeanine Patten-Coble said.  “Our cause touches so many lives, and we look forward to helping families who need time to reconnect and relax.  Our organization has grown into 8 different states, but we are always excited to come back to Pleasure Island since it is where the first ever Little Pink Retreat was held 4 years ago.” Be on the lookout for lots of pink, roars of laughter and tons of fellowship during LPHOH’s stay in Pleasure Island.  For more information on how you can be involved with LPHOH or donate, contact Jeanine Patten-Coble at This email address is being protected from spambots.
