Komen Puget Sound announced Tuesday is its last public opportunity to purchase $10 raffle tickets to win a free one-year lease of its special pink MINI Cooper provided by Puget Sound MINI.
The MINI Cooper affectionately named “Dottie” will be downtown at the Discovery Center in South Lake Union from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Supporters can come by during lunch from Amazon and near-by offices to see the car covered with survivor signatures gathered over the month of travels and appearances.
The event will be hosted by Komen Puget Sound volunteer, and breast cancer survivor, Jenn Nudelman.
An Issaquah resident, Nudelman has been driving the MINI all around her local neighborhood and the Puget Sound area during the month of October, National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, to raise awareness and funds for the fight against breast cancer.
“I have an excellent prognosis, and I feel that is due in large part to awareness and medical advances in breast cancer funded at least in part by Susan G. Komen,” says Jenn. “I am happy to do whatever I can to support Susan G. Komen's vision of a world without breast cancer as a way to say thank you.”
All the funds from the MINI raffle will go to fund Komen Puget Sound’s fight against breast cancer. Seventy-five percent of the net funds raised will help provide mammograms, treatment support and education for local women. Twenty-five percent of the net funds will go directly to global research to find a cure for the disease.
The raffle drawing to be held this Friday, Nov. 2 at 2 p.m. For more information about the MINI Cooper raffle, please go komenpugetsound.org.
