Brenda Sawyer and the Pink Rose Ball committee embraced as she thanked the entire community of Abaco for their overwhelming support of the Pink Rose Ball. Because of the support received, Abaco Tourism Manager Wynsome Ferguson expressed that they were happy to present the $10,000-cheque to Bradley and Marjolein Scott-van Der Hek on behalf of the Abaco Cancer Society.

“It means that our efforts were not in vain in the short three weeks that we planned this event,” Ferguson shared. “Kudos to our chairperson – Melinda [Pinder].”

Pinder also congratulated the committee members, who were chosen to work hand-in-hand with her for the worthy cause. She was joined by Ferguson, Sawyer, Laura Albury, and Ruth Saunders. Theresa Albury is also a part of the committee.

“With this team? It was easy,” Pinder boasted.

Bradley and Scott-van Der Hek appeared stunned by the amount collected.

Bradley said: “Our jaws dropped when we heard how much money this group of ladies raised for the Abaco Cancer Society, and we thought about all the people this money is going to help over the years.

“We are just so grateful to everyone in our community for pitching in and making this the most successful event Abaco has ever known.”
