This will be the first Pink Gravel Donation Drive since Jon and I opened The Pink Gravel Fund with the Emporia Community Foundation (ECF). While donations can be made to the fund at anytime, during these 17 days donors names will be entered into a drawing for a Marc Jacobs Pink Tote Bag.
QUICK STORY BEHIND THE TOTE: I was given $$$ from my parents right after the Halloween on Main Street event Pink Gravel hosted with the Dwight CDC. My Mom said in so many words "use this for Pink Gravel however you want". So for several days I carried it in my pocket trying to decide if it should be applied to the fund or put in the bank just to cover future expenses. Well, one weekend I was out looking at Halloween stuff on sale, I saw this bright pink tote tied up and tagged like it was something special. Honestly, I don't carry a purse or anything, so I was unfamiliar with the brand. Turns out Marc Jacobs is up there on the brand names list of bags. I starred at it for a long time somewhat mesmerized by the color and wondering how I could use this for Pink Gravel. Eventually, I decided to buy it and figure it out later. I couldn't pass this hot pink bag. By the time I got home with it, I had figured out a plan to use it for the first Donation Drive for The Pink Gravel Fund.

I am just a 40 something married lady with kids who likes to ride gravel when life lets me. Just so happens I was called into the Cancer Club on October 31, 2019. Fought my fight with surgery, chemo, radiation, friends, family and lots of dark humor. I find sharing my experience helps me. Maybe it can help you.
