A Heart for the Pink Ribbon event

 — October

A Heart for the Pink Ribbon, the flagship event for Roberta’s Legacy, was sold out in 2023!

It was a special night with catered food and beverages, a coffee bar, music, and dessert, as well as a small program in which one of our Legacy Families shared their story. We also shared how we have grown and helped offer support to so many.

Date: Sunday, October 29, 2023
Time: 5:00 to 8:00 pm

Our theme for this year’s A Heart for the Pink Ribbon was: Your Fight is Our Fight! We strive to live out the legacy Roberta left with us, helping our Legacy Families. And for us, this means walking alongside them, every step of the way, fighting with them!

Because of generous event sponsors, the cost of tickets went directly to local families walking through breast cancer.

We loved visiting with you and celebrating our growth! Thank you for your continued support.

In 2023 we sold out the event! We had a family speak, live-time, for the first time; there was not a dry eye in the house. 

A huge thank you to our generous sponsors who covered all the event’s expenses!

In 2022, we heard from three Legacy Families whom we were walking beside. They shared their touching stories and how Roberta’s Legacy helped them on their breast cancer journeys.


In 2021, The Board of Roberta’s Legacy made the difficult decision, due to the continued and ongoing uncertainties that COVID-19 brings, and out of an abundance of caution, to not host the annual A Heart for the Pink Ribbon dinner. Instead, we held an online auction event in October: Wreaths of Hope!


In addition to our ticket sales, we raised $5,625 for Roberta’s Legacy that will go directly to the needs of our Legacy Families. We continue to be so grateful for the support of our community as we move forward in caring for the various needs of our Legacy Families.

In 2020, we added a ‘virtual’ ticket and had many folks join us virtually, even from as far away as PA, TX, AZ and CA!  While some of us were able to be in-person and socially distant at the Shupe Homestead, others locally, including our Legacy Families, joined us with catered dinners delivered to their respective homes!  We were so grateful to have options for everyone’s needs.

Roberta never walked alone. Throughout her journey, Roberta was always supported by the love and generosity of her family and friends. We want our community of breast cancer patients and their families to feel that way, too.

Thank you for helping us support our breast cancer community in need!
