Pink in all shades was the colour of choice on Saturday, May 31, at Top Crop Garden, Farm & Pet in Cranbrook. Hosting ‘Pink Day’ at the store for the second consecutive year, Top Crop’s goal was to raise awareness and funds for women fighting cancer. To this end, the store raised $1,089 for the Canadian Cancer Society. The money was raised through the sale of special ‘Power of Pink’ planters and other plant specials and events. The funds will go directly to the Cancer Society’s Financial Support Program which gives assistance to people in financial need for transportation and accommodation when traveling to and from cancer treatment. A big ‘Thank You’ to the community for supporting the cause and making ‘Pink Day’ such a special day.
