Celebrate Minnie's Legacy: The Minnie Pearl Cancer Foundation
Coming Soon - A Star-Studded Online Auction Celebrating Minnie's Legacy
To celebrate our 25th anniversary and Minnie Pearl's 100th birthday, we will be hosting an online auction September 15 - 25, 2012. A Commemorative Auction: Celebrating Minnie Pearl and Her Legacy will feature unique items and one-of-a-kind experiences that only Music City could offer! From a signed guitar by Keith Urban to a meet-and-greet with Rascal Flatts, this auction will have something for every country music fan.
All proceeds will support Minnie's legacy, The Minnie Pearl Cancer Foundation, and our mission to create a more confident cancer journey for adults anytime, anywhere.

Special Thanks to Our "Hats Off" Sponsors
This month we will host "Hats Off: a Minnie Pearl Homecoming Celebration" to honor and celebrate those who have been at the heart of our work for the last 25 years: past volunteers, board members, supporters, and donors. Special thanks to our wonderful sponsors for this event: HCA, Waller, CHS, Thomas Miller & Partners, and Lipman. Without them, this event would not be possible!
Don't Forget to Order Your 2012 Celebration Merchandise!
Nashville artist extraordinaire, Sheila B., has created an original work of art to celebrate our year-long celebration. The one-of-a-kind painting is now available on T-shirts, posters and lithographs (signed and numbered) to support MPCF. Also, courtesy of our friend Sheila B., we offer a special, redesigned "Visualize Minnie Pearl" bumper sticker, exclusively for this special year. The goodies are available to purchase online today!

This Month in 1912
In August 1966, Minnie Pearl became the first woman to be named Billboard's "Man of the Year!" Also, another famous TV star, Chef Julia Child, was born August 15, 1912. In the spirit of Julia Child, check out great recipes to get your plate in cancer-fighting shape on our Pinterest board.
During this year of celebration, we are honored by your support of our mission to create a more confident cancer journey for adults anytime, anywhere.
