Eureka, California – September 29, 2007, local Scrapbooking enthusiasts will come together for the first-ever Scrap Pink weekend, a fundraising event created by Scrapbooks etc to benefit Susan G. Komen for the Cure.

Hosting the event locally will be Scrapper’s Edge, the largest Scrapbooking shop in Northern California, located at 728 4th Street in Eureka.

On Scrap Pink weekend, retailers will invite consumers to participate in an exciting in-store scrapbooking party, called a crop, where scrapbookers will create layouts and projects.  Customers will pay $30 to attend the crop, and $10 of this fee will be donated to support Komen’s mission to find a cure for breast cancer through research, education, screening, and treatment.

Sondra Kirtley, owner of Scrapper’s Edge, sees Scrap Pink as much more than just another fundraiser.  “It’s a time to get together, make new friends, work on scrapbooking projects, and raise money for two very good causes.”  In addition to supporting Susan G. Komen for the Cure campaign, Kirtley is also donating 10% of all her sales on September 28th and 29th to the Humboldt Community Breast Health Project.  “I’ve supported the local project every year I’ve been in business and am happy to combine my efforts with the national Scrap Pink event this year,”  Kirtley added.

To ensure adequate space, supplies and food for participants, Kirtley recommend that Scrapbookers call in advance of the Scrap Pink crop.  To sign up for Scrap Pink or for more details about the local event, call 445-9686 or visit Scrapper’s Edge, located at 728 4th Street inScrappink_logo_2 Eureka.  Scrap Pink information is also available at www.Scrappink.com and at www.ScrappersEdge.net.
