Plowing cancer in a perfectly pink manner 

Perpetual Pink Tractor Auction at Horseman’s Re-Union

It’s pink, it’s powerful, and it’s bringing awareness to the reality of breast cancer – it’s the Perpetual Pink Tractor and it will be making an appearance at this week’s Horseman’s ReUnion at the Paso Robles Event Center to help raise much-needed funds.

The community is invited to join the Cancer Support Community-California Central Coast after the Elegant Dinner event during the Horseman’s Re-Union for their Pink Tractor Sponsor Auction at 6:30 p.m. on Friday, April 11. The highest bidder will sponsor the tractor for the entire year. The sponsor’s name and logo will be prominently displayed in all media, press, print materials, public appearances and campaigns associated with the “Plowing Cancer” Breast Cancer Care Fund.

Pink Tractor, Sarah Stafford

Atascadero teen Sarah Stafford painted the tractor pink as a symbol of breast cancer awareness.

“This is a lighthearted way for us to bring awareness to the everyday realities that many women in our community are facing with a breast cancer diagnosis,” said CSCCCC Executive Director Christie Kelly.

The Perpetual Pink Tractor is no ordinary tractor. Painted pink as a symbol of breast cancer awareness, Atascadero teen Sarah Stafford came up with the idea after a close family friend dealing with breast cancer inspired her creativity. She entered the restored 1948 antique tractor into the “Find It, Fix It, Win $2500” competition at last year’s Midstate Fair.

“The details on the tractor are really special,” said Kelly, “and we are so honored that Sarah chose to partner with us in our cause to plow cancer.”

All proceeds from the auction will directly benefit The Breast Cancer Care Fund. To donate directly, visit Call the Cancer Support Community – California Central Coast, at (805) 238-4411 or stop by 614 13th St. in Paso Robles for more information.
